#### Transcript DFA vs NFA

DFA vs NFA Deterministic Finite Automata Non-Deterministic Finite Automata Characterized as 5-tuple < S, A, T, s0, F > • S is the set of states • A is the alphabet • T is the transition function: S xA S • s0 is the start state • F is the set of accepting states. Characterized as 5-tuple < S, A, T, s0, F > • S is the set of states • A is the alphabet • T is the transition function: S x (A{}) PS • s0 is the start state • F is the set of accepting states.

Construct a DFA table for the following NFA transition table. The start state is 0 and there is one accepting state, 2. a 0 Ø 1 {2} 2 Ø b {1,2} Ø {2} {1} Ø {1} b 1 0 a b 2 b Waseem Besada 9 Solution to exercise 5 NFA transition table DFA transition table T a b a {0,1} {1,2} ? {1,2} ? 0 {1,2} 0 Ø 1 {2} 2 Ø {1,2} {1,2} b {1,2} Ø {2} {1} Ø {1} 1 0 a,b Waseem Besada 1 a,b 10 Exercise 6 6.
