The combinatorial explosion of motif patterns occurring in 1D and 2D arrays leads to the consideration of special classes of motifs growing linearly with the size of the input array. Such motifs, called irredundant motifs, are able to succinctly represent all of the other motifs occurring in the same array within reasonable time and space bounds. In previous work irredundant motifs were extracted from 2D arrays in O (N 2 log 2 n log log n) and O (N 3) time, where N is the size of the 2D input array and n is its largest dimension. In this paper, we present an algorithm to extract irredundant motifs from 2D arrays that is quadratic in the size of the input. The input is defined on a binary alphabet. It is shown that the algorithm is optimal and practically faster than the previous ones. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
