## Algorithm Laws

### Rabin Karp Algorithm:

Rabin-Karp Algorithm is a searching algorithm used specifically to search strings. Rabin-Karp is also known as Karp-Rabin algorithm. This algorithm is a string searching algorithm which was created by Richard M. Karp and Michael O. Rabin, Since it was created by these two scientists, It was named after the creator. Hence, Rabin-Karp algorithm. This Algorithm uses Hash data structure to find the string pattern.

Performance:

• Average case : O(n + m)
• Best Case : O(n + m)
• Worst case : O(m)

Where, The length of the text is n. The pattern of the test is p. Combined length of these texts ism.

For example:

Text = abcdef Pattern = abc

h(abc) = x, Formula. Where, a = 1, b = 2, c = 3, d = 4, e = 5, f = 6

• h(abc) = 1+2 x 31 + 3 x 32

= 1 + 6 + 27 = 34 Therefore , h(abc) = x = 34

• h(bcd) = 2 + 3 x 31+ 4 x 32

= 2 + 9 + 36 = 47 Therefore, h(bcd) = 47

• h(cde) = 3 + 4 x 31 + 5 x 32

= 3 + 12 + 45 x = 60

• h(def) = 4 + 5 x 31+ 6 x 32

= 4 + 15 + 54 x = 73

Example 2:

Text = abdadaab Patter = ab

h(a,b) = x = 7

Where, a = 1, b = 2, d = 3, a = 4, d = 5, a = 6, a = 7, b = 8

h(a,b) = x = 7.

• h(ab) = 1 + 2 x 31

= 1+6 = 7

• h(bd) = 2 + 4 x 31

= 2+12 = 14

• h(da) = 4 + 31

= 7.

• h(ad) = 1 + 4 x 31

= 7

• h(aa) = 1+3

= 4

• h(ab) = 1 + 6

= 7 (same).

Since, h(ab) = 7, The pattern ab is found in the text.

## Knuth-Morris-Pratt Algorithm:

The Knuth-Morris-Pratt Algorithm also called KMP algorithm, is a string search algorithm. KMP algorithm searches a substring in a given string. Similar to a Rabin-Karp algorithm, This algorithm searches for a pattern in a given string. As the name implies, This algorithm was invented by three computer scientists namely Donald Knuth, Vaughan Pratt, James H. Morris in the year 1970 but was officially published in 1977.

Example: Search the pattern in the given string using KMP Algorithm.

Text : "abcxdabxabcdabcdabcy" Search pattern : "abcdabcy"

Here, We cannot directly compare the pattern with the text. As KMP algorithm says we compare half of the pattern with prefix and suffix.

Now, We do the same for other halves.

Hence the pattern is finally matched :
