This ebook begun as a sequence of lecture notes for a direction known as Introduc­ tion to Adaptive structures which I constructed for undergraduate Computing technology majors on the collage of Alberta and primary taught in 1973. the target of the direction has been threefold: (l) to show undergraduate desktop scientists to numerous matters within the thought and alertness of computation, matters that are too frequently postponed to the graduate point or by no means taught in any respect; (2) to supply undergraduates with a heritage adequate to lead them to potent individuals in graduate point classes in Automata thought, organic info Processing, and synthetic Intelligence; and (3) to offer a private standpoint which unifies the it appears various facets of the subject material lined. All of those ambitions practice both to this booklet, that is essentially designed to be used in a one semester undergraduate machine technology direction. i suppose the reader has a normal wisdom of pcs and programming, notwithstanding now not of specific machines or languages. His mathematical history should still contain easy thoughts of quantity structures, set concept, user-friendly discrete chance, and logic.

Example text

0, 1, A, and ¢ are regular expressions; 2. If E and E' are regular expressions, then so are: (a) EvE', (b) EE' and (c) E*; 3. There are no other regular expressions. The above definition requires some explanation and comment. Step 1 is called the base of a recursive definition and tells us what primitive components may be used to build the class of things we are defining. In this case we have four primitive regular expressions which serve to describe four primitive sets of sequences. The first three of these are just the single element sets containing the sequences 0, 1, and A, respectively; the fourth is the empty set.

Step 3 is called the restriction of a recursive definition. Although sometimes omitted, this step tells us the important fact that there does not exist any other way to construct regular expressions. When dealing with complex regular expressions we will want to use parentheses to isolate subexpressions to be evaluated first, much as in algebra or computer programming languages. We will also order the basic operations in a precedence hierarchy of evaluation, to be employed when parentheses do not indicate otherwise.

A) Example and (b) program for Wang machine multiplication. multiplies two numbers in unary form (and, unlike the addition program, preserves the original arguments). For arguments of m and n this program makes m consecutive copies of n digits. The routine in instructions 5-13 copies n digits and is used m times by the remaining instructions. To keep track of which copy is being made, and of which digit is being copied, the program sets to zero and later restores the argument digits. 2 Universal Turing machines In this section we investigate one of Turing's most remarkable results, that there exists a single Turing machine which can perform the computations performed by any other Turing machine.
