Example: abbbabbaa e L, withx= abb,y= bab, andz : baa. Not regular, which we’ll show-by pumping. Let w m akakbk. This string is in L since 3: = all, y = a’i and z = y (from the pumping theorem) 2 a" for some nonzero p. Let g = 2 (ie, we pump in once); lfp is not
dhisfble by 3, then the resulting string is not in L because it cannot be divided into three equal length
segments. pr = 31' for integer i, then, when we divide the resulting string into three segments of equal
length, each segment gets longer by 1' characters. The ﬁrst segment is still all a’s, so the last segment must
remain all b’s. But it doesn’t. It grows by absorbing a’s ﬁom the second segment Thus 2 no longer e x
