Abstract

String comparison is a fundamental task in theoretical computer science, with applications in e.g., spelling correction and computational biology. Edit distance is a classic similarity measure between two given strings A and B. It is the minimum total cost for transforming A into B, or vice versa, using three types of edit operations: single-character insertions, deletions, and/or substitutions.
