INSTRUCTIONS TO CANDIDATES

Exercise 1: Regular Expressions........... 20 marks

Regular Expressions Syntax: The + operator in regular expressions is used in some books to denote one or more applications of Kleene star. However, in other places, such as JFLAP, + denotes the alternation operator, equivalent to  . For the purpose of this assignment, we follow JFLAP and use operator + to denote an alternation. In JFLAP, you can use λ or g to denote the empty string (see Preferences menu).

For parts (i) to (iii), please type each word on a new line. The notation wi wj denotes concatenation of words

wi and wj , and wr denotes the word obtained by reversing w.

(a) Let R1 = 1(1∗ + 2∗ )3∗ (2∗ + 3)1∗2(1 + 3)∗2∗ and R2 = 1∗3(2 + 3)∗2∗ (1 + 3)∗ (1 + 3)∗ be two regular expressions.

Whenever asked to provide words, these must be non-empty ones (and different if more than one).

1. (2 marks) [E1-Qb4.txt]

L = {bnw1 | n > 1, w1 ∈ (({a, c }∗ ∩ {a, b, c }∗ ) ({b}∗ ∪ {c }))} ∩ {w2c | w2 ∈ {a, b, c }∗}.

• (3 marks) [E2-Qc2.txt] Does there exist a regular expression, DFA, regular grammar or PDA over the alphabet Σ = a, b, c which is equivalent to the language L? (Answer the following question as a string of bits that translate to 1 for yes and 0 for no. For example, if your answer is “no, no, yes, no" give your response as 0010).

Exercise 3: Automata........ 25 marks
