Theory of Finite Automata with an Introduction to Formal Languages

Show all documents Applications of Semigroups The theory of automata has its origins in the work by Turing Shannon, and Heriken Turing developed the theoretical concept of what is now called Turing machines, in order to give computability a more concrete and precise meaning. Hannon investigated the analysis and synthesis of electrical contact circuits using switching algebra.

The work of McCullon and pitts centers on neuron models to explain brain functions and neural networks by using finite automata. Their work was continued by Kleene. The development of technology in the areas of electromechanical and machines and particularly computers had a great influence on automata theory which traces back to the mids. Many different parts of pure mathematicians are used as tools such as abstract algebra, universal algebra, lattice theory , category theory , graph theory , mathematical logic and the theory of algorithms.

In turn automata theory can be used in economics, linguistics and learning processes. The beginning of the study of formal languages can be traced to Chomsky, who introduced the concept of a context-free language in order to model natural languages in Since then late there has been considerable activity in the theoretical development of context-free languages both in connection with natural languages and with the programming languages.

Chomsky used semi-thue systems to define languages , which can be described as certain subsets of finitely generated free monoids. Chomsky details a revised approach in the light of experimental evidence and careful consideration of semantic and syntactic structures of sentences.

For a common approach to formal languages and the theory of automata we refer to Eilenberg Application Review of Automata Theory A formal language is described as a set of strings following a defined pattern over a given alphabet.

An automaton is a machine, which is used to process the formal languages. The field of automata theory finds number of applications in literature. Present paper reviews few of them. The application domain considered in present study includes compiler design, time granularity, deep packet inspection and DNA evolution. The aim of present study is to explore the applicability of concept in described field. For this, research papers have been reviewed to infer that the principles and concepts of automata are being used in fields as diverse as networking to a field like biology and bio-informatics.

From the review, it has been concluded that each automaton, which is available, is a representation of a real-life scenario and they can be used to solve other problems.

The review is quite helpful for novel researchers in the field of formal languages and automata theory to understand applicability of field in variety of applications. Bayesian Network Automata for Modelling Unbounded Structures The formal power of systems for specifying ar- bitrarily large structures has been studied exten- sively in the area of formal language theory.

For- mal language theory has proved a wide range of equivalences and subsumptions between grammar formalisms, the most well known example be- ing the Chomsky hierarchy i. It has also demonstrated the equivalence between formal grammars and for- mal automata e. While grammar formalisms are generally more readable than automata , they appear in a wide variety of notational variants, whereas automata provide a relatively consistent framework in which differ- ent grammar formalisms can be compared.

Au- tomata also provide a clearer connection to Dy- namic Bayesian Networks. For these reasons, this paper uses automata theory rather than grammars, although many of the ideas are trivially transfer- able to grammars. The paper defined the syntax of languages using precise mathematical rules called grammars. The research results have greatly benefited to many fields of computer science, including programming languages , compiler design, and artificial intelligence.

After the advent of modern electronic computers, mathematical model of computer known as automata plays an important role of model of computation. Specifically, this computational model can be viewed a recognizer of the formal languages.

However, the fin ite case is important, namely fo r its lin k w ith the theory o f form al languages and the theory o f finite automata. Eilenberg introduced a different notion o f variety o f semigroups, dealing this way w ith the fin ite case. Replies to Objections Now, given that languages are just possibly infinite sets of strings defined over a finite alphabet, they incorporate no direct record of their complexity, but, as Chomsky showed, this can be assessed indirectly by studying the complexity of the finite devices capable of specifying them — grammars and automata.

As for grammars, different degrees of complexity are obtained by successively imposing constraints on the format of rules to go from unrestricted grammars for recursively enumerable sets to right- or left- linear grammars for regular sets.

In the case of automata , the difference in structure follows from the constraints on the working memory space the device has at its disposal to perform the computation, with Turing machines having infinite space and time resources to work with and finite-state automata having no working memory space at all.

This focus on memory space may seem unjustified at first blush, because, unlike the case of grammars, the traditional characterization of automata is not easily seen as a series in which each automaton is defined as an extension of the immediately preceding one. Thus, whereas the pushdown automaton is just like a finite-state automaton with a memory stack plus the minimal adjustments to its finite control unit to be able to manipulate the stack , the linear-bounded automaton for context-sensitive languages is a Turing machine whose memory working space is constrained by the length of the input string, that is, it can only use the space in the input tape already occupied by the input string.

This is clearly a constraint on memory, but it is hard to see how it relates to the structural properties of the stack of a pushdown automaton. This relation only became obvious after the work of K. On Fuzzy Pushdown Automata and their Covering In comparison to existing research on fuzzy automata we have established various algebraic properties such associativity, commutativity, distributivity and certain sort of exchange property of products of fuzzy pushdown automata namely restricted, direct, cascade, cartesian, direct sum and sum.

In section 2 we defined six different products of fuzzy pushdown automata and discuss their interrelations. We use the definition of fuzzy pushdown automata [2] and introduced covering between them. We believe that the notions of covering and homomorphism of fuzzy pushdown automata along with the properties of products will somewhat simplify the construction part for more complex closure properties; this motivates us to introduce covering and homomorphism of fuzzy pushdown automata in section 3.

We also establish interrelationship between covering and homomorphism of fuzzy pushdown automata in this section. On Evaluating the Generalization of LSTM Models in Formal Languages ral networks, and mention that training sets con- taining abundant numbers of both short and long sequences are learned by networks much more quickly than uniformly distributed regimes.

Nev- ertheless, they do not systematically compare or explicitly report their findings. To study the ef- fect of various length distributions on the learning capability and speed of LSTM models, we experi- mented with four discrete probability distributions supported on bounded intervals Figure 2 to sam- ple the lengths of sequences for the languages.

We briefly recall the probability distribution functions for discrete uniform and Beta-Binomial distribu- tions used in our data generation procedure.

Every sub-Star-Free class of lan- guages in which the parameters of the class k, for example are fixed can be factored in this way. The learners for non-strict classes are practical, however, only for small val- ues of the parameters. Agents have a degree of control on their own actions, have their own threads of control, and under some circumstances they are also able to take decisions.

Therefore they are autonomous. The multi-agent system is modeled as a network of timed automata based agents supported by clock variables. The representation of agent requirements based on mathe- matics is helpful in precise and unambiguous specifications, thereby ensuring correctness. This formal representation of requirements provides a way for logical reasoning about the artifacts produced.

We can be systematic and precise in assessing correctness by rigorously specifying the functional requirements. Diagnosing runtime violations of security and dependability properties The static phase of the Java-MaC architecture starts with a formal requirements specification, which is written in both high-level and low-level specifications.

PEDL is tightly related to the programming language. Specifications written in PEDL contain the definitions of primitive events and conditions expressed using these events. Such definitions are given in terms of program entities such as program variables and program methods and their purpose is to assign meanings to the program entities. MEDL specifications consist of required safety properties. Primitive events and conditions are used to express these safety properties.

Intuitively, a condition is a state predicate and an event is an instantaneous state change. The reporting capabilities of the runtime checker are described in the MEDL specifications, as well. MEDL uses alarms to express a violation of a property. An alarm is an event that should not occur during an execution. If an alarm fires during an execution, then a user notification is issued. Workover Simulating Based on the Theory of Automata In order to solve the problem that workover simulator cannot respond any operation, a design scheme of workover simulator based on automata theory is proposed.

This paper analyzes the current problems existing in the workover simulator, and puts forward the necessity and feasibility of solving the problem. Taking running tubing as an example, this paper analyzes the steps in the operation procedure, and designs the relation between the status and actions, using the theory of finite automata to achieve arbitrary operation response during workover simulation. The result shows the flexibility and stability of the system.

New variants of insertion and deletion systems in formal languages In this research, two variants of insertion and deletion are considered, which are sequential insertion and deletion, and parallel insertion and deletion, such that bonded systems of each variant are introduced. These bonded systems utilize the concepts of atomic behavior of chemcial compunds such as DNA molecules during chemical bonding in the process of DNA recombination.

Furthermore, the families of languages in the Chomsky hierarchy and Lindenmayer systems are used to compare the languages generated by bonded insertion and deletion systems to determine their generative power. Stamina : stabilisation nonoids in automata theory Abstract.

We present Stamina, a tool solving three algorithmic prob- lems in automata theory. First, compute the star height of a regular language, i. Sec- ond, decide limitedness for regular cost functions. Third, decide whether a probabilistic leaktight automaton has value 1, i. Researchers, who are in the use of grounded theory research methodology, can clearly feel the links between the researching activities and the personal life experience and background, so it can be said that the research activities and interviewees have not alienated or separated from each other, but there is also the integrated use of personal experience and background Li, In addition, the vivo concept, established from the data collection, is based on the saying and narration of the interviewees and narrators, which could better demonstrate the concept construction and view point of them.

With the increased time-to-market pressure, and to enable SoC designs, SLDS need to be able to specify and model all aspects of the system at higher abstraction level at the System Level. This will allow early design space exploration to evaluate various design alternatives early in the design process. Some of these deficiencies are lack of support for:.

Comparison of max-plus automata and joint spectral radius of tropical matrices Decidability questions about the description of functions computed by max-plus automata have been intensively studied. In his celebrated paper [20], Krob proves the undecidability of the equivalence problem for max-plus automata : there is no algorithm to decide if two max-plus automata compute the same function.

In fact, his proof gives a stronger result: it is undecidable to determine whether a max-plus automaton computes a positive function. More recent approaches are based on a reduction from the halting problem of two-counter machines [1, 6]. The reader is referred to [21] for a survey on these questions.

Game semantics for interface middleweight Java The aim of the present paper is to extend the range of the game approach towards real-life programming languages , by fo- cussing on Java-style objects.

To that end, we define an impera- tive object calculus, called Interface Middleweight Java IMJ , in- tended to capture contextual interactions of code written in Mid- dleweight Java MJ [9], as specified by interfaces with inheritance.

We present both equational contextual equivalence and inequa- tional contextual approximation full abstraction results for the language. To the best of our knowledge, these are the first deno- tational models of this kind. The Design of Formal Languages Before the developm ent of non-Euclidean geometries, the axioms of geometry w ere felt by rationalists to be a prim e exam ple of an a -priori truth.

The first question opened up w hat was thought to be a priori tru th to judgem ent by perceived phenom ena. Indeed, the geom etry of space tim e proposed by Relativity theory is non-Euclidean.
