In all cases, the alphabet is { , 1 } . • { w : w contains an odd number of 1s or exactly two 0s } . Solution: * (10 * 10 * ) * 10 * ∪ 1 * 01 * 01 * • { w : w contains an odd number of 1s and each 1 is followed by at most three 0s } . Solution: * (1( ∪ ∪ 00 ∪ 000)1( ∪ ∪ 00 ∪ 000)) * 1( ∪ ∪ 00 ∪ 000) • { w : every even position in w is 0 } . (The positions are numbered starting with posi- tion 1.) Solution: ∪ ∪ 1 ∪ ((0 ∪ 1)0) * ∪ ((0 ∪ 1)0) * (0 ∪ 1) Question 2: Use the construction given in class (and described in the notes) to convert the regular expression (0(10) * 1 ∪ 1) * to an NFA. The alphabet is { , 1 } . Solution: We first consider how the regular expression is “built”: • Take the regular expressions 1 and 0, and concatenate them into the regular expression 10. • Take the regular expression 10, and take its star to get the regular expression (10) * . • Take the regular expressions 0 and (10) * , and concatenate them into the regular ex- pression 0(10) * . • Take the regular expressions 0(10) * and 1, and concatenate them into the regular expression 0(10) * 1. • Take the regular expressions 0(10) * 1 and 1, and union them into the regular expression 0(10) * 1 ∪ 1. • Take the regular expression 0(10) * 1 ∪ 1, and take its star to get the regular expression (0(10) * 1 ∪ 1) * . 1 First, we construct an NFA M 1 that accepts the language described by the regular expression 1: 1 M 1 Next, we construct an NFA M 2 that accepts the language described by the regular ex- pression 0: M 2 Next, we apply the concatenate construction to M 1 and M 2 . This gives an NFA M 3 that accepts the language described by the regular expression 10: M 3 1 Next, we apply the star construction to M 3 . This gives an NFA M 4 that accepts the language described by the regular expression (10) * : 1 M 4 Next, we apply the concatenate construction to M 2 and M 4 . This gives an NFA M 5 that accepts the language described by the regular expression 0(10) * : 1 M 5 Next, we apply the concatenate construction to...
