Compression, information theory, and grammars: a unified approach

Abraham Bookstein, Shmuel T. Klein
1990 ACM Transactions on Information Systems  
A number of theoretical consequences of this approach to compression are explored, and a detailed example is given.  ...  Assuming a general model of text generation, a derivation is given of the well known Shannon entropy f o r m ula, making possible a theory of information based upon text representation rather than on communication  ...  Much of the theory of data compression relies heavily on Shannon's theory of information 2], 24], a body of mathematics intended for analyzing the encoding and transmission of messages across a possibly  ...

Faster Approximate Pattern Matching: A Unified Approach [article]

Panagiotis Charalampopoulos, Tomasz Kociumaka, Philip Wellnitz
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Our proofs are constructive and let us obtain a unified framework for approximate pattern matching for both considered distances.  ...  We showcase the generality of our framework with results for the fully-compressed setting (where T and P are given as a straight-line program) and for the dynamic setting (where we extend a data structure  ...  Consider Algorithm 18 for a visualization of the whole algorithm as pseudo-code. If there is an approximate period Q of P we call PeriodicMatches (from Lemma 6.11).  ...

Faster Approximate Pattern Matching: A Unified Approach

Panagiotis Charalampopoulos, Tomasz Kociumaka, Philip Wellnitz
2020 2020 IEEE 61st Annual Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science (FOCS)  
In this work, we consider grammar compression, where a string T is represented using a context-free grammar that generates the singleton language {T }; without loss of generality, such a grammar is a straight-line  ...  While one approach to solve pattern matching in the fully compressed setting is to first decompress the strings and then run an algorithm for the standard setting, this voids most benefits of compression  ...  Consider Algorithm 18 for a visualization of the whole algorithm as pseudo-code. If there is an approximate period Q of P we call PeriodicMatches (from Lemma 6.11).  ...

Generative Grammar: A Meaning First Approach

Uli Sauerland, Artemis Alexiadou
2020 Frontiers in Psychology  
We specify a formal sketch of compression as a choice between multiple possible pronounciations balancing the desire to transmit information against the effort of pronounciation.  ...  At the same time, our view differs from early transformational grammar and generative semantics: We view the relationship between the thought structure and the corresponding signal as one of compression  ...  our two reviewers for their many helpful comments, and to Elisabeth Backes, Daniil Bondarenko, Maite Seidel, and Renata Shamsutdinova for technical assistance.  ...

Unification Strategies in Cognitive Science

Marcin Miłkowski
2016 Studies in Logic, Grammar and Rhetoric  
Cognitive science is an interdisciplinary conglomerate of various research fields and disciplines, which increases the risk of fragmentation of cognitive theories.  ...  In this paper, I distinguish theoretical integration from theoretical unification, and propose some analyses of theoretical unification dimensions.  ...  The oppositions were becoming less and less clear, and no unity in explanations was to be found. Instead, Newell proposed that one should focus on what he called a unified theory of cognition.  ...

Bimorphisms and synchronous grammars

Stuart M. Shieber
2014 Journal of Language Modelling  
In this paper, we provide a synthesis and extension of work that unifies two approaches to such language relations: the automatatheoretic approach based on tree transducers that transform trees to their  ...  counterparts in the relation, and the grammatical approach based on synchronous grammars that derive pairs of trees in the relation.  ...  A reconciliation of these two approaches was initiated in two pieces of earlier work (Shieber 2004 , which the present paper unifies, simplifies, and extends.  ...

Geometric Representations for Minimalist Grammars

Peter beim Graben, Sabrina Gerth
2012 Journal of Logic, Language and Information  
We reformulate minimalist grammars as partial functions on term algebras for strings and trees.  ...  We also propose harmony, i.e. the distance of an intermediate processing step from the final well-formed state in representation space, as a measure of processing complexity.  ...  Acknowledgments This research was supported by a DFG Heisenberg grant awarded to PbG (GR 3711/1-1).  ...

Semantic RL with Action Grammars: Data-Efficient Learning of Hierarchical Task Abstractions [article]

Robert Tjarko Lange, Aldo Faisal
2019 arXiv   pre-print
The resulting set of temporal abstractions is called action grammar (Pastra & Aloimonos, 2012) and unifies symbolic and connectionist approaches to Reinforcement Learning.  ...  Therefore, we propose a cognitive-inspired Reinforcement Learning architecture which uses grammar induction to identify sub-goal policies.  ...  Therefore, we need to define our grammar-based approach formally: Formal grammars (formal language theory [5] ) study generating (grammar) and accepting systems (automatons) that underlie a language.  ...

An Abstract Machine for Unification Grammars [article]

Shuly Wintner (Department of Computer Science, the Technion, Haifa, Israel)
1997 arXiv   pre-print
This formalism is one of the most widely accepted in computational linguistics and has been used for designing grammars in various linguistic theories, most notably HPSG.  ...  Amalia is composed of data structures and a set of instructions, augmented by a compiler from the grammatical formalism to the abstract instructions, and a (portable) interpreter of the abstract instructions  ...  Being very much like first-order term unification, this operation combines the information that is encoded by two feature structures and produces a result that contains the unified information, provided  ...
