We also see that q 1 is nondeterministic because two of its outgoing transitions are on the same symbol, a.

This will clear all the current configurations and restart the simulation. Although we are only removing configurations that are jlap to be rejected, we can remove any configurations for any purpose, and the simulator will stop stepping through input on those configurations. First, let’s create several states. An accepting configuration is colored green:.

Building Your First Finite Automaton

For instance, with the toolbar above, we are now in the Attribute Editor mode. Multiple Run from the menu bar. Type “a” in the text box and press Enter. For example, if we are in the State Creator mode, clicking on the canvas will create new states. Note that this definition includes both deterministic finite automata DFAswhich we will be discussing shortly, and nondeterministic finite automata NFAswhich we will touch on later.


The simulator will now step through input as usual. Your editor window should now look something like this:. Lastly, we know that only strings that end with an odd number of b ‘s should be accepted.

The editor is divided into two basic areas: At any point in the simulation, we can restart the entire simulation process by clicking Reset.

Your simulator will now look like this:. You will notice q 1 becomes the shaded state in the NFA, and that the configuration icon changes, jlap the fact that the first a has been processed.

A bounding box appears and all states and blocks within the box are selected, their color now blue.

Arbitrarily, we decide that q 0 will be our initial state. Tutorlal, if the FA has any transitions that read the empty string for input, it is also considered an NFA. A new tab will appear displaying the automaton on the left pane, and an input table on the right:. We know strings in our language can start with a ‘s, so, the initial state must have an outgoing transition on a.

Your FA is now a full, working FA! For a full tutorial on how to use these features, and to see a description of the built-in layout commands, feel free to read the layout command tutorial.

This should give us a pop-up menu that looks like this:.


The different modes dictate the way mouse clicks affect the machine. Create a transition on b tutorail q 1 to q 2. A dialog box prompting you for input will appear.

There are two options for the transtion: Next, let’s create a final state. It will become a solid color when selected, instead of the slightly graded color. A new widow will appear showing the traceback of that configuration:. To return to the Editor window, select File: The processed input is displayed in gray, and the unprocessed input is black. The results, Accept or Reject are displayed in the Result column. As the simulator tried to process the next tjtorial on this configuration, it realized that there are no outgoing a transitions from q 11 and thus rejected the configuration.

Let’s take a look at this NFA, which can be accessed through ex1. You might notice that the q 3 is not used and can be deleted.

After processing the second ait was in q It will have a double outline, indicating that it is the final state. A text box should appear over the state:. To deselect them, click anywhere else. The current state is shaded.
