In general, to fully verify a given pword, gcd(k, l) sequences are needed corresponding to the positions 0 ≤ i < gcd(k, l). Now, we use these sequences 3 Some readers may find the following (equivalent) definition of seqk,l (i) more intuitive: i0 = i and for 1 ≤ j ≤ n + 1, ij = (ij−1 + k) mod (k + l). ) As before, continue the sequence until the first occurrence of i is reached. Combinatorial Properties of Partial Words 51 to make our definition of (k, l)-special partial word precise in the following manner.

3 Let a and b be letters in an alphabet A. Then, a6 = aaaaaa (aba)3 = (aba)(aba)(aba) = abaabaaba At this point, we define a word u to be primitive if there exists no word v such that u = v i with i ≥ 2. 4 The word u = abaaba is not primitive, as shown here: u = abaaba = (aba)2 = v 2 where v = aba 1A semigroup is a nonempty set together with a binary associative operation. A monoid is a semigroup with identity. Preliminaries on Partial Words 27 The word aaaaa = a5 is also clearly not primitive, whereas the word aaaab is primitive.

5 Let x and y be nonempty partial words such that xy has at most one hole. If xy ↑ yx, then there exists a word z such that x ⊂ z m and y ⊂ z n for some integers m, n. However, if xy possesses more than one hole, the situation becomes more subtle. Indeed, it is easy to produce a counterexample when xy contains just one more hole. 6 Let x = bb and y = abb . Then xy = bbabb ↑ abb bb = yx Since gcd(|x|, |y|) = 1, if x and y were contained in powers of a common word z, then |z| would be equal to 1, which is not possible for y.
