Abstract : Given a set of strings, the Common Subsequence Automaton accepts all common subsequences of these strings. Such an automaton can be deduced from other automata like the Directed Acyclic Subsequence Graph or the Subsequence Automaton. In this paper, we introduce some new issues in text algorithm on the basis of Common Subsequences related problems. Firstly, we make an overview of different existing automata, focusing on their similarities and differences. Secondly, we present a new automaton, the Constrained Subsequence Automaton, which extends the Common Subsequence Automaton, by adding an integer $q$ denoted quorum.
