  • Currie, James; Lafrance, Philip (The Electronic Journal of Combinatorics, 2016-02-19)
    For every pattern p over the alphabet {x, x^R, y, y^R}, we specify the least k such that p is k-avoidable.
  • Currie, James D.; Rampersad, Narad; Shallit, Jeffrey (The Electronic Journal of Combinatorics, 2006-09-22)
    We characterize the squares occurring in infinite overlap-free binary words and construct various α power-free binary words containing infinitely many overlaps.
  • Crochemore, Maxime; Currie, James D.; Kucherov, Gregory; Nowotka, Dirk (Dagstuhl Publishing, 2014-03-09)
    Strings (aka sequences or words) form the most basic and natural data structure. They occur whenever information is electronically transmitted (as bit streams), when natural language text is spoken or written down (as words ...
  • Currie, James D.; Rampersad, Narad (Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science, 2014-05-13)
    We construct infinite cubefree binary words containing exponentially many distinct squares of length n . We also show that for every positive integer n , there is a cubefree binary square of length 2n.
  • Currie, James; Rampersad, Narad (EDP Sciences, 2009)
    We show that Dejean’s conjecture holds for n ≥ 27. This brings the final resolution of the conjecture by the approach of Moulin Ollagnier within range of the computationally feasible.
  • Allouche, Jean-Paul; Currie, James D.; Shallit, Jeffrey (The Electronic Journal of Combinatorics, 1998-05-03)
    Let t be the infinite fixed point, starting with 1, of the morphism μ:0→01, 1→10. An infinite word over {0,1} is said to be overlap-free if it contains no factor of the form axaxa, where a∈{0,1} and x∈{0,1}∗. We prove that ...
  • Currie, James D.; Rampersad, Narad (The Electronic Journal of Combinatorics, 2008-08-31)
    The critical exponent of an infinite word w is the supremum of all rational numbers α such that w contains an α-power. We resolve an open question of Krieger and Shallit by showing that for each α>2 there is an infinite ...
  • Currie, James; Rampersad, Narad (EDP Sciences, 2010)
    Richomme asked the following question: what is the infimum of the real numbers α > 2 such that there exists an infinite word that avoids α-powers but contains arbitrarily large squares beginning at every position? We resolve ...
  • Currie, James D.; Saari, Kalle (EDP Sciences, 2009)
    We show that any positive integer is the least period of a factor of the Thue-Morse word. We also characterize the set of least periods of factors of a Sturmian word. In particular, the corresponding set for the Fibonacci ...
  • Currie, James D. (The Electronic Journal of Combinatorics, 2002-07-03)
    In 1906 Axel Thue showed how to construct an infinite non-repetitive (or square-free) word on an alphabet of size 3. Since then this result has been rediscovered many times and extended in many ways. We present a two-dimensional ...
  • Currie, James D. (The Electronic Journal of Combinatorics, 1995-10-14)
    We can compress the word 'banana' as xyyz, where x= 'b', y= 'an',z= 'a'. We say that 'banana' encounters yy. Thus a 'coded' version of yy shows up in 'banana'. The relation 'u encounters w' is transitive, and thus generates ...
  • Currie, James D.; Saari, Kalle (The Electronic Journal of Combinatorics, 2014-01-12)
    We answer a question of Harju: For every n ≥ 3 there is a square-free ternary word of length n with a square-free self-shuffle.
  • Currie, James D. (The Electronic Journal of Combinatorics, 2016-05-27)
    We solve a problem of Petrova, finalizing the classification of letter patterns avoidable by ternary square-free words; we show that there is a ternary square-free word avoiding letter pattern xyzxzyx. In fact, we characterize ...
  • Currie, James D. (The Electronic Journal of Combinatorics, 2002-10-11)
    There are circular square-free words of length n on three symbols for n≥18. This proves a conjecture of R. J. Simpson.
  • Aberkane, Ali; Currie, James D. (The Electronic Journal of Combinatorics, 2004-01-23)
    We show that there exist binary circular 5/2+ power free words of every length.
