# Cadences in Grammar-Compressed Strings

Cadences are structurally maximal arithmetic progressions of indices corresponding to equal characters in an underlying string. This paper provides a polynomial time detection algorithm for 3-cadences in grammar-compressed binary strings. This algorithm also translates to a linear time detection algorithm for 3-cadences in uncompressed binary strings. Furthermore, this paper proves that several variants of the cadence detection problem are NP-complete for grammar-compressed strings. As a consequence, the equidistant subsequence matching problem with patterns of length three is NP-complete for grammar-compressed ternary strings.
