Notes on suffix tree construction

Notes on suffix tree construction, some course notes for COMP 612: Graduate Seminar in Compiler Construction, includes some pointers to important papers. user David D. had this complaint: None of the links work on this page, all there is is a short paragraph on suffix trees. I have to agree, it’s a rather strange page.
