A Structural Lemma for Deterministic Context-Free Languages
We present a new structural lemma for deterministic con- text free languages. From the first sight, it looks like a pumping lemma, because it is also based on iteration properties, but it has significant distinctions that makes it much easier to apply. The structural lemma is a combinatorial analogue of KC-DCF-Lemma (based on Kolmogorov complexity), presented by Li and Vit ́anyi in 1995 and corrected by Glier in 2003. The structural lemma allows not only to prove that a language is not a DCFL, but discloses the structure of DCFLs Myhill-Nerode classes.
Concepts of the theory of algorithmic languages and methods of broadcasting and also processing of data and their organization are considered. Statement of material is followed by practical examples. The grant is intended for students of the higher educational institutions studying in the Applied Mathematics and Applied Mathematics and Informatics directions. Contains the subjects studied in disciplines "The theory of computing processes and structures", "The theory of algorithmic languages", "Mathematical fundamentals of informatics". It can be used as lecture material, on a practical training, when performing course and theses and also as means of self-education
Timed automata and timed finite state machins (TFSMs) have been proposed to represent more accurately the behaviour of systems in continuous time. Recently, we introduced a model of TFSMs that extends the expressive power of FSMs by introducing a single clock, timed guards which restrict when the input/output transitions may happen, and timeouts on the transitions. We derived an abstraction procedure to convert a TFSM into an equivalent untimed FSM. Here, we extend the model with output timeouts and derive a minimal form for deterministic TFSMs that reduces the number of states, the number of transitions and the timeout values at each state.
We investigate regular realizability (RR) problems, which are the prob- lems of verifying whether intersection of a regular language – the input of the problem – and fixed language called filter is non-empty. In this pa- per we focus on the case of context-free filters. Algorithmic complexity of the RR problem is a very coarse measure of context-free languages com- plexity. This characteristic is compatible with rational dominance. We present examples of P-complete RR problems as well as examples of RR problems in the class NL. Also we discuss RR problems with context- free filters that might have intermediate complexity. Possible candidates are the languages with polynomially bounded rational indices.
Formal language theory has a deep connection with such areas as static code analysis, graph database querying, formal verifica- tion, and compressed data processing. Many application problems can be formulated in terms of languages intersection. The Bar-Hillel theo- rem states that context-free languages are closed under intersection with a regular set. This theorem has a constructive proof and thus provides a formal justification of correctness of the algorithms for applications mentioned above. Mechanization of the Bar-Hillel theorem, therefore, is both a fundamental result of formal language theory and a basis for the certified implementation of the algorithms for applications. In this work, we present the mechanized proof of the Bar-Hillel theorem in Coq.
