### Abstract

Finding matches, both exact and approximate, between a sequence of symbols A and a pattern P has long been an active area of research in algorithm design. Some of the more well-known byproducts from that research are the diff program and grep family of programs. These problems form a sub-domain of a larger areas of problems called discrete pattern matching which has been developed recently to characterise the wide range of pattern matching problems. This dissertation presents new algorithms for discrete pattern matching over sequences and develops a new sub-domain of problems called discrete pattern matching over interval sets. The problems and algorithms presented here are characterised by pattern matching over interval sets. The problems and al
