## EQUIVALENCE OF DFA AND NFA PDF

languages are the same. – For M. 1., M. 2., L(M. 1.) = L(M. 2.) • DFAs and NFAs: – For every NFA there is an equivalent DFA. (we’ll prove this) and vice-versa. Problem Statement. Let X = (Qx, ∑, δx, q0, Fx) be an NDFA which accepts the language L(X). We have to design an equivalent DFA Y = (Qy, ∑, δy, q0, Fy) such. To show this we must prove every DFA can Consider the NFA that accepts binary strings ending with The key idea for building an equivalent DFA is to.

Guy 5, 23 58 We can prove that set of regular languages is closed under intersection and union. Yuval Filmus k 12 It has three branches, namely; the computational complexity theory, the computability theory, and the automaton theory. DFA only has one state transition for every symbol of the alphabet, and there is only one final state for its transition which means that for each character that is read, there is one corresponding state in DFA. Please don’t ask us to do your homework for you.

As the corresponding edges should be labeled by the same characters, simply sort the outgoing edges from each state by those. NFAs have been generalized in multiple ways, e. I think determining the equivalence of two dfq DFA’s should be easy, simply do a BFS through both in the same order.

For a proof it doesn’t matter is there are extra states, or too many states; what matters it that it is easy to write and understand the proof. Do you mean the graphs are isomorphic? X will be empty when there is no path leading from starting state to any of the final state of X. The establishment of such equivalence is important and useful. I removed that paragraph from the answer, as it was not necessary, nor does it even answer the original question. Summarizing, as always theory is easier cfa practice.

Paresh 2, 1 14 For an in-depth study on this topic, I highly recommend that you read An Introduction to Formal Language and Automata. Views Read Edit View history. Email Required, but never shown. If you indeed follow the construction in the way you describe, then there might be states which are unreachable from the starting state.

And what do you mean by need to test the graph isomorphism? Thompson’s construction is an algorithm for compiling a regular expression to an NFA that can efficiently perform pattern matching on strings. This page was last edited on 21 Decemberat What do you mean “equivalent”?

There is an easy construction that translates a NFA with multiple initial states to a NFA with single initial state, which provides a convenient notation. Here is the algorithm for checking if L A is contained in L B: An alternative approach is to only add states as you generate the transitions rather than adding all states at the start.

You should flag your homework with [homework]. While it is possible in some cases, in others it is not. It is important because NFAs can be used to reduce the complexity of the mathematical work required to establish many important properties in the theory of computation.

### automata – Equivalence of NFA and DFA – proof by construction – Computer Science Stack Exchange

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. To intersect two automata U and V you construct an automaton with the states U x V. It is useful because constructing an NFA to recognize a given language is sometimes much easier than constructing a DFA for that language.

Which is the best or easiest method for determining equivalence between two automata? You get an automaton that recognizes the complement of L B.
