Abstract (type = abstract)
Let \$Sigma\$ be a finite alphabet and \$x in Sigma^n\$. A string \$y in Sigma^m\$ is said to be \$k\$-dissimilar to \$x\$, if no \$k\$ length substring of \$x\$ is equal to any \$k\$ length substring of \$y\$. We present an \$O(n log n)\$ algorithm which on input \$x in Sigma^n\$ and an integer \$m leq n\$ outputs an integer \$k\$ and \$y in Sigma^m\$ such that:
- \$y\$ is \$k\$-dissimilar to \$x\$.
- There does not exist a string \$z\$ of length \$m\$ which is \$k-1\$ dissimilar to \$x\$.
