Sep. 1, 2010 (Wednesday) Chapter 1: Regular Languages 4 Design of Finite Automata Three steps to design a finite automaton M to recognize a language L . step 1: determine the information to remember about the part of an input string which M has already read. step 2: represent that information as a set of states. The start state is the state corresponding to the empty string. A final state is a state corresponding to strings in L . step 3: assign a transition for each input symbol from each state. Remark 1: If the information remembered in step 1 is insufficient, step 3 will have problems. Remark 2: The information needed to remember in step 1 may not be unique. Example 1 Design a finite automaton M 1 which recognizes the following language L 1 = { x over { 0,1 } | x does not end with 01 } SOLUTION 1 for Example 1: step 1: When M 1 is reading an input string, it should remember what are the last two input symbols that we just read?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
