Cocke Younger Kasami [CYK]
Mathematics Accomplishment | 1970
Where the work was done: IBM T.J. Watson Research Center
What we accomplished: Paraphrasing Wikipedia: "CKY is a parsing algorithm for context-free grammars. The importance CYK stems from its high efficiency in certain situations. The worst case running time of CYK is , where n is the length of the parsed string and |G| is the size of the CNF grammar G. This makes it one of the most efficient parsing algorithms in terms of worst-case asymptotic complexity."
