The parameterized pattern matching problem is to check if there exists a renaming bijection on the alphabet with which a given pattern can be transformed into a substring of a given text. A parameterized border array (p-border array) is a parameterized version of a standard border array, and we can efficiently solve the parameterized pattern matching problem using p-border arrays. In this paper we present an O(n1.5)-time O(n)-space algorithm to verify if a given integer array of length n is a valid p-border array for an unbounded alphabet. The best previously known solution takes time proportional to the n-th Bell number 1/e Σk=0 ∞ kn/k! , and hence our algorithm is quite efficient.
