A pushdown automaton is a way to implement a context-free grammar in a similar way we design DFA for a regular grammar. A DFA can remember a finite amount of information, but a PDA can remember an infinite amount of information.


In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to construct deterministic finite automata, non-deterministic finite automata, Regular expression, context-free grammar, context-free language, Push down automata, Turning machines, etc.

CSE 5210 Formal Languages and Automata Theory.Presents abstract models of computers (finite automata, pushdown automata and Turing machines)and the language classes they recognize or generate (regular, context-free and recursively enumerable).Also presents applications of these models to compiler design, algorithms and complexity theory.

Discrete Mathematics and its Applications course is designed to provide clear, accessible treatment of discrete mathematics for mathematics, engineering, and computer science students. Computer science courses like algorithm, compiler design, automata theory, data structure, cryptography, and database and similarly mathematics courses such as number theory, abstract algebra, set and logic theory, Combinatorics, and probability are included to make an improved edition.

Several of you have asked how to log in to the Stanford machines remotely. To do so, you will need an SSH client. OnLinux or Mac computers, you can do this from the command-line with ssh. On Windows, you will need to downloada SSH client such as PuTTY or SecureCRT (available withyour SUNetID here). From there, you will want toconnect to either or You will probably get a warning about a RSA key not matching, which is perfectly fine; these above hostnames will forward you to a free machine on the cluster. From there, you should be good to go!

Using JFLAP, one should be able to design and simulate several variations of finite automata (FA), pushdown automata (PDA), one-tape Turing machines (TM) and two-tape Turing machines (TTM). The user draws the transition diagram of the desired automaton and, once the picture is complete, the user enters an input string and then "runs" the automaton, being able to view all the generated configurations. In addition, JFLAP can handle grammars(GRM) and Regular Expressions(REX).

Automata Theory possesses a high degree of permanence and stability, in contrast with the ever-changing paradigms of the technology, development, and management of computer systems. Further, parts of the Automata theory have direct bearing on practice, such as Automata on circuit design, compiler design, and search algorithms; Formal Languages and Grammars on compiler design; and Complexity on cryptography and optimization problems in manufacturing, business, and management.

Practice best Compiler Design Interview Questions, which are very Popular & helpful for the preparation of Compiler Design Interview. apart from this, you can also download Compiler Design MCQ PDF, completely free.

In compiler design, Bootstrapping is a process in which simple language is used to translate more complicated programs. This complicated program can further handle even more complicated programs and so on.

An introduction to logic and its application to problem solving and computer science. CMPSC 111S Logic for Computer Science (1)Computer Science provides the fundamental tools for analyzing problems and designing solutions to these problems which can be implemented on a computer. Logic plays an important role in this process, from a general-purpose tool for reasoning about knowledge to a special-purpose language for specifying the behavior of programs and designing hardware. This course examines the role of logic in problem solving and its application to computer science and computer engineering. Example problems will be drawn from a variety of sources, including brain teasers, puzzles, and mathematics. We will show how these problems and their solutions apply to real problems involving computers. We will also explore a number of the important areas of computer science and computer engineering including Boolean and Digital Logic, Designing Arithmetic Hardware, Cryptography and Security Programming Languages, Networking and Wireless Communication, Artificial Intelligence, and Computer Ethics.

Unix system programming in C; organization of programs and data; program analysis and support tools; software standards; common system functions. CMPSC 311 CMPSC 311 Introduction to Systems Programming (3) System Programming concerns the development of software components and methods for their combination, independent of any particular application. This course will provide information and experience required to understand, design and implement components of large software systems.In general, students should be able to evaluate design alternatives according to standard practice, specifications, performance analysis, robustness, etc. To concentrate attention, we investigate one system and one programming language in detail, through demonstration programs, short- and long-term programming assignments. The specific system is Unix, a family of operating systems forming a complete standardized programming environment based on the idea of software tools. The specific language is C, which is widely used for operating system implementations, and which forms the basis for the C++ and Java languages studied in the prerequisite courses. This will help students understand operating system services available to application programmers, and provide a firm ground for study of operating systems in general.There are several themes of the course:(1) Understand computer systems, especially low-level influences on high-level goals. This includes the machine-level representation of programs and data structures; the memory hierarchy and its impact on performance; access to stored information via file systems, and access to other computer systems via networks.(2) Understand existing system software and software standards, especially the UNIX toolset. This includes preparing a program (editors, static analysis, development environments); running a program (compilers and interpreters, assembler, linker, loader, debugger, profiler, tracer); controlling parts of a program (memory management, threads); communication between programs (within one system using signals, between systems using sockets and communication protocols); and combinations of software tools with scripting languages.(3) Understand "real code", such as selections from the Linux operating system kernel and GNU utilities and libraries, and through comparative selections from Solaris, Linux, and Mac OS X.(4) Understand system performance, including experiments on program performance and optimization techniques.

Computability/Complexity: finite automata, regular & context-free languages, Turing machines, Church-Turing Thesis, undecidability, reducibility, completeness, time/space complexity, P versus NP. CMPSC 464 Introduction to the Theory and Computation (3)CMPSC 464 introduces students to an essential part of theoretical computer science: how to define abstract mathematical models of computational devices (automata), how to characterize their computational power by studying the family of languages that they can recognize (formal languages), and what the limitations of even the most powerful computational devices are (computability). The course studies regular languages by means of deterministic and nondeterministic finite-state automata and regular expressions; it studies context-free languages through the use of context-free grammars and pushdown automata; and it studies computability by means of Turing machines and recursive and recursively-enumerable languages. The unsolvability of the halting problem for Turing machines is proved by a diagonalization argument, and this result is then used to show that various problems about languages are unsolvable, such as the problem of determining whether two context-free grammars generate the same language. Finally, the concept of computational complexity is introduced, and the classes P and NP are defined. (Informally, the former class consists of problems that can be solved computationally in a manageable amount of time, and the latter consists of problems for which a proposed solution can be verified in a manageable amount of time.) The concept of an NP-complete problem is defined, and some specific problems are proved to be values to the variable of a Boolean formula that will make the formula true).

Regular, context free, recursive, and recursively enumerable languages; associated machine models; applications. CMPSC 469 Formal Languages with Applications (3) The primary goal of this course is to explore formal language theory, including regular, context free and recursively enumerable languages. Notations for specifying these languages (regular expressions, finite automata, context free grammars and turing machines) are emphasized. Applications of these languages, including pattern recognition, scanning, parsing, specification of programming language syntax and Unix shell programming, are also discussed. Study of these topics should provide a solid theoretical basis for students to draw on in studying diverse areas such as algorithm analysis, complexity theory and compiler construction.

Compiler design and implementation; scanning, parsing, semantic analysis, optimization (including static analysis), code generation, garbage collection, and error detection. CMPSC 470 Compiler Construction (3) The primary topics of this course are areas of compiler construction that are applicable both in building compilers and in many other areas of computer science. Both the concepts and the implementation of these techniques will be emphasized. Study of these topics should improve student skills in programming, debugging and software engineering.This course is an elective for students in both the BS COMP and MS COMP programs. The course builds on concepts learned in earlier programming, data structure and computer organization courses.
