Approximate String Matching - What is the best algorithm for string matching?


The Knuth-Pratt-Morris algorithm is the most well-known conventional method for string matching. In the most extreme scenario, its temporal complexity is Θ(N + M)9,10. Θ(N + M) is a comparable runtime for the best-known algorithms for approximate string matching.
