in thread Challenge: Fast Common Substrings

The page you link to mentions being able to build them in O(n) but then only really describes how to go from a suffix tree for string $x to one for string $x.$c (1==length$c) in O(length $x). Using that algorithm would require O(N*N) to build the suffix tree for a string of length N.

So I'm not sure I believe the O(N) claim for building the whole suffix tree based on that page.

    The naive algorithm requires O(N*N). The Ukkonen algorithm needs only O(N). If you want to understand it - it is not trivial - I recommend Gusfields book (Algorithms on Strings,...).
