Suppose that the input alphabet has only the two letters a and b. By Rule 3 In fact, there are several other sequences that could also produce this result. We must confess now that the proof of the theorem that the intersection of two regular languages is again a regular language was an evil pedagogical trick. U We put the end of proof symbol U right after the statement of the theorem to indicate that we have already provided a proof of this result. Find a string that disproves this algorithm.

U We can now present yet another definition of L 3. This will be-our ultimate result, that no matter what machine we build, there will always be questions that are simple to state that it cannot answer. The machine for Ll' + L2 ' accepts only those words in L, but not in L 2. They are both regular languages because they are defined by the following regular expressions among others. One can add only meat to the pot. Some words with fewer than six letters correspond to paths with circuits, such as baaa.

The symbols that appear in regular expressions are: the letters of the alphabet 1, the symbol for the null string A, parentheses, the star operator, and the plus sign. We cannot just do the reverse of the previous procedure. To be an acceptable specification of a language, a set of rules must enable us to decide, in a finite amount of time, whether a given string of alphabet letters is or is not a word in the language. The situation for languages with infinitely many words is different. Von Neumann's goal was to convert the electronic calculator into a reallife model of one of the logicians' ideal universal-algorithm machines, such as those Turing had described. From there, if we read an a we go to ql or r 3 , and if we read instead a b we go to q2 or r2. From state y and input a go to state x.

They can all be written in this form a96 a 7 where is the loops more 96 0b. Pieces are set up on a playing board. We are concerned with the Theory of Computers, which means that we form several abstract mathematical models that will describe with varying degrees of accuracy parts of computers and types of computers and similar machines. With regular expressions this is easy. What can be said in general? First, we consider the possibility that there were some powers of x that we could not produce by concatenating factors of xx and xxx. But this would mean that the input string a °3 b 9 6 is accepted by this machine. If there is a path from - to + without a circuit, then it can visit each state at most one time.

Perles, and Eliahu Shamir in 1961. We then arrive at what we may believe to be the most powerful machine possible. Let us say that the machine we have in mind has 77 states. The path can then have at most N edges and the word that generates it can have at most N letters. It stands for any string of x's in the language L 4. Therefore, it must at some point revisit a state that it has been to before.

Similarly, if the middle part, y, is composed of only b's, then the word xyyz will have more b's than a's. The a-circuit 3-4-5-6 and the b-circuit 9-10. It is: xx xx xxx or xx xxx xx or xxx xx xx Also, x6 is either x2x2x2 or else x3x3. Another example of excessive care is the worry about the language that contains no words at all. Let us take an example.

From now on we shall let the closure operator apply to infinite sets as well as to finite sets. Solution Manual for Introduction to Computer Theory 2nd Edition by Daniel I. Suppose for a moment that we were studying calculus and we had just proven that the derivative of the sum of two functions is the sum of the derivatives and that the derivative of the product fg is f'g + fg'. We have all the parts we need in order to define regular expressions recursively. The Pumping Lemma says that there must be strings x, y, and z such that all words of the form xyz are in L.

. Step 1, cross off the longest set of characters from the front of the string that is a word in S. Give letter more such 17. Whether or not the white pieces win the game is dependent entirely on what sequence of numbers is generated by the dice, not on who moves them. It is already a problem, and it gets worse later. Let us consider some simple examples of languages.

Consider a word w with even a's and even b's. After this section of type 3 we could proceed with more sections of type, or type 2 until we encountered another undoubled pair, starting another type 3 section. Then r, + r 2 is a regular expression that defines the language L1 + L 2. Let us say we concatenated aaba and baaa and aaba. } which is the language L, that we discussed before. Let us continue the conversion.

On the other hand, we may wish to define a language like L1 but that does contain A. Therefore, even Rule 3 iv cannot introduce the substring If. Since L1 and L 2 are regular, then so are L1' and L 2 '. The path cannot visit a new state with each input letter read because there are only 95 states. Be careful, this is not simply the language of all words without bbb.
