Introduction to Automata Theory, Languages, and Computation 1st ed. ISBN Introduction to Automata Theory, Languages, and Computation 2nd ed. Introduction to Automata Theory, Languages, and Computation 3rd ed. Formal Languages and Their Relation to Automata appeared in , with an inornate cover.
The first edition of Introduction to Automata Theory, Languages, and Computation was published in , the second edition in November , and the third edition appeared in February Since the second edition, Rajeev Motwani has joined Hopcroft and Ullman as third author.
Starting with the second edition, the book features extended coverage of examples where automata theory is applied, whereas large parts of more advanced theory were taken out. While this makes the second and third editions more accessible to beginners, it makes it less suited for more advanced courses.
The start state corresponds to the empty string, and each state has a transition on the next letter of then to the state that corresponds to the next-larger pre x.
The state named then is entered when the input has spelled the word then. Since it is the job of this automaton to recognize when then has been seen, we could consider that state the lone accepting state.
Grammars are useful models when designing software that processes data with a recursive structure. We introduce context-free grammars, as they are usually called, in Chapter 5. Regular Expressions also denote the structure of data, especially text strings. As we shall see in Chapter 3, the patterns of strings they describe are exactly the same as what can be described by nite automata. This expression represents patterns in text that could be a city and state, e.
Parentheses are used to group components of the expression they do not represent characters of the text described.
As we mentioned in the introduction to the chapter, there are two important issues: 1. What can a computer do at all?
The subject is studied in Chapter While geometry has its practical side e. In the USA of the 's it became popular to teach proof as a matter of personal feelings about the statement. While it is good to feel the truth of a statement you need to use, important techniques of proof are no longer mastered in high school.
Yet proof is something that every computer scientist needs to understand. Some computer scientists take the extreme view that a formal proof of the correctness of a program should go hand-in-hand with the writing of the program itself. We doubt that doing so is productive.
On the other hand, there are those who say that proof has no place in the discipline of programming. Our position is between these two extremes.
Testing programs is surely essential. However, testing goes only so far, since you cannot try your program on every input.
When your testing tells you the code is incorrect, you still need to get it right. To make your iteration or recursion correct, you need to set up an inductive hypothesis, and it is helpful to reason, formally or informally, that the hypothesis is consistent with the iteration or recursion.
