Comprehensive Exam: Autumn 2000-01 Automat a and Formal Languages (60 points) Problem 1. [lo points] Consider the language L defined by the regular expression 00'10. Provide a PDA M for this language using as few states as possible. Note that there is a PDA with only 1 state and that the number of points you get will depend on the number of states used in your solution. Problem 2. [18 points] Decide whether the following statements are TRUE or FALSE. You will receive 3 points for each correct answer and -2 points for each incorrect answer. 1. If L1 and L2 are both non-regular, then L1 n L2 must be non-regular. 2. L = {w E {a, b, c)' ( w does not contain an equal number of occurrences of a, 6, and c) is context-free. 3. Let L represent the language of a non-deterministic finite-state automaton N; then, swapping the final and non-final states of N gives a machine N' whose language is the complement of L. 4. Assume that P # NP. If L1 is in P and L2 is in NP, then L1 n L2 must be in P.

### What students are saying

• 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.
