World leading smartphone and mobile technology research at Strathclyde...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde researchers from the Department of Computer & Information Sciences involved in researching exciting new applications for mobile and smartphone technology. But the transformative application of mobile technologies is also the focus of research within disciplines as diverse as Electronic & Electrical Engineering, Marketing, Human Resource Management and Biomedical Enginering, among others.

Abstract

We continue the study of partially ordered generalized patterns (POGPs) considered in [E. Babson, E. Steingrímsson, Generalized permutation patterns and a classification of the Mahonian statistics, Séminaire Lotharingien de Combinatoire, 2000, B44b:18pp] for permutations and in [A. Burstein, T. Mansour, Words restricted by patterns with at most 2 distinct letters, Electron. J. Combin. 9 (2) (2002) #R3] for words. We deal with segmental POGPs (SPOGPs). We state some general results and treat a number of patterns of length 4. We prove a result from [S. Kitaev, Multi-avoidance of generalized patterns, Discrete Math. 260 (2003) 89–100] in a much simpler way and also establish a connection between SPOGPs and walks on lattice points starting from the origin and remaining in the positive quadrant. We give a combinatorial interpretation of the powers of the (generalized) Fibonacci numbers. The entire distribution of the maximum number of non-overlapping occurrences of a generalized pattern with no dashes in permutations or words studied in [S. Kitaev, Partially ordered generalized patterns, Discrete Math. to appear, S. Kitaev, T. Mansour, Partially ordered generalized patterns and k-ary words, Ann. Combin. 7 (2003) 191–200], respectively, has its counterpart in case of SPOGPs.
