Prefix normal words Fici, Lipt´ ak (DLT 2011) Definition A binary word w is prefix normal (w.r.t. 1) if no substring has more 1s than the prefix of the same length. Example w = 10110001001101110010 w 0 = 11101001011001010010 Burcsi, Fici, Lipt´ ak, Ruskey, Sawada Normal, Abby Normal, Prefix Normal FUN 2014 2 / 17

###### "Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."
— Christopher R., University of Rhode Island '15, Course Hero Intern

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
