An Optimal Wagner-Fischer Algorithm For Approximate Strings

The Levenshtein distance is an efficient metric widely applied to evaluate the similarity between literal strings and other 1D sets. In this article, the optimal Wagner-Fischer algorithm for the Levenshtein distance computation and its implementation, are thoroughly discussed, by an example. The code samples in Python and NumPy demonstrate the similarity of literal strings evaluation, based on the Levenshtein distance …
