Theorem: If A m B and B is ( semi ) decidable, then A is ( semi ) decidable Proof: Let M decide B and let f be a reduction from A to B We build a machine N that decides A as follows: On input w: 1. Compute f (w) 2. Run M on f (w)
CLAIM: A TM m HALT TM f: (M,w) (M’, w) where M’( w) = M(w) if M(w) accepts Loops otherwise So, (M, w ) A TM (M’, w) HALT TM A TM = { (M,w) | M is a TM that accepts string w } HALT TM = { (M,w) | M is a TM that halts on string w } CONSTRUCT f : Σ* Σ* So HALT TM is NOT DECIDABLE, but it is SEMI- DECIDABLE (Why?)

CLAIM: A TM m ¬ E TM f: (M,w) M w where M w (s) = M(w) if s = w Loops otherwise So, (M, w ) A TM M w ¬ E TM A TM = { (M,w) | M is a TM that accepts string w } E TM = { M | M is a TM and L(M) = } CONSTRUCT f : Σ* Σ* So, M(w) accepts L (M w ) ¬ A TM m E TM So ¬ E TM is NOT DECIDABLE, but it is SEMI- DECIDABLE ( why?) Is E TM SEMI-DECIDABLE?
CLAIM: A TM m REG TM f: (M,w) M’ w where M’ w (s) = accept if s = 0 n 1 n M(w) otherwise So, (M, w ) A TM M’ w REG TM A TM = { (M,w) | M is a TM that accepts string w } REG TM = { M | M is a TM and L(M) is regular} CONSTRUCT f : Σ* Σ* So, L (M’ w ) = Σ* if M(w) accepts { 0 n 1 n } if not So REG TM is UNDECIDABLE Is REG SEMI-DECIDABLE?

### 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.
