Arbitrarily, we select q 1 as our final state. To step through input on an NFA, select Input: Tuotrial, you would enter the input you wish to step through here. Your simulator will now look like this:. When a tool is selected, it is shaded, as the Attribute Editor tool is above.

Let’s take a look at this NFA, which can be accessed through ex1. If the transition on b was to the initial state q 0strings would not have to be of the form a m b n ; strings such as ababab would also be accepted.

JFLAP: Building a Finite Automaton

First, let’s create several states. If we click Step again, we will see that the last configuration is rejected. To do so we need to activate that State Creator tutoriaal by clicking the button on the toolbar. An accepting configuration is colored green:. It should look something like this:. Thus, we know that the outgoing transtion on b from q 0 must be to a final state, as a string ending with one b should be accepted.

To proceed with the frozen configuration, select it and click Thaw. To do so, select Input: This should bring up a new window that allows you to create and edit an FA. Click Step to process the next symbol of input. You can also load the inputs from file delimited by white space. For now, type “aaaabb” in the dialog box and press Jflpa. A text box should appear over the state:.


View Trace brings up a separate window that shows the trace of the slected input.

Click Step another three times to find an accepting configuration. Thus, we know that q 1 has an outgoing transition on bthat it cannot loop back to q 1. If the text box isn’t selected, press Tab to select it, then enter “a”. Looking at the tracebacks of the rejected configurations, we can tell that any configurations that are in q 11 or q 6 and whose next input symbol is a will be rejected. That is, we will build a DFA that recognizes that language of any number of a ‘s followed by any odd number of b ‘s.

Next, click on the state q 3. The simulator will now step through input as usual. To select more than one state or block at once, choose the attribute editor, click on empty space, and drag the mouse.

Selecting the tool puts you in the corresponding mode. Next, we know that strings in our language must end with a odd number of b ‘s.

A white arrowhead appreas to the left of q 0 to indicate that it is the inital state. A bounding box appears and all states and blocks within the box are selected, jjflap color now tutoriaal. Thus, the outgoing transition on a from q 0 loops back to itself. Looking at the two configurations above, we might realize that the configuration on q 3 will not lead to an accepting configuration. JFLAP can help with that. Dismiss Tab from the menu bar. This is because the machine is nondeterministic.


We are not very sure how many states we will need, so we created four states. From the pop-up menu, select the checkbox Initial.

For instance, with the toolbar above, we are now in the Attribute Editor mode. Clicking Clear deletes all the input strings, while Enter Lambda enters the empty string at the cursor. This will clear all the current configurations and restart the simulation.

Your editor window should now look something like this:.

A new tab will appear displaying the automaton on the left pane, and an input table on the right:. JFLAP will now let you apply predefined graph layout commands to your graph, which can help with a more aesthetically pleasing graph.

If we click Reset and step all the configurations, we will find that there is, indeed, only one accepting configuration. The processed input is displayed in gray, and the unprocessed input is black.

Building Your First Finite Automaton

The transition between two states should look like this:. Click outside the note to get rid of the cursor. Next, we will describe how futorial delete states and transitions. A dialog box prompting you for input will appear. To define it iflap be our initial state, first select the Attribute Editor tool on the toolbar.

Thus, there is only one accepting configuration. The simulator will no longer step these configurations. Highlight Nondeterminism from the menu bar:. To return to the Editor window, select File:
