JFLAP both DFA and NFA are created using Finite Automata. . JFLAP’s home page also contains a very thorough tutorial of everything the program can do.

At any point in the simulation, we can restart the entire simulation process by clicking Reset. Next, we know that strings in our language must end with a odd number of b ‘s. To define it as the final state, right-click on the state and click the checkbox Final. This should bring up a gutorial window that allows you to create and edit an FA. Next, we will describe how to delete states and transitions. There are two options for the transtion: From the traceback, we can tell that that configuration started at tutodial 0 and took the transition to q 1 after processing the first a.

A dialog box prompting you for input will appear. You will find that tutorixl states are shaded instead of one, and there are four configurations instead of one.

For instance, with the toolbar above, we are now in the Attribute Editor mode. That is, we will build a DFA that recognizes that language of any number of a ‘s followed by any odd jflxp of b ‘s.

A jclap arrowhead appreas to the left of q 0 to indicate that it is the inital state. To do so, select Input: To proceed with the frozen configuration, select it and click Thaw.

Your simulator will now look jdlap this:. Secondly, if the FA has any transitions that read the empty string for input, it is also considered an NFA.


Create a transition on b from q 1 to q 2. Click outside the note to get rid of the cursor. 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. Press Enter to continue to the next input string. Clicking Clear deletes jglap the input strings, while Enter Lambda enters the empty string at the cursor. This will clear all the current configurations and restart the simulation.

The traceback shows the configuration after processing each input symbol.

JFLAP: Building a Finite Automaton

Thus, the outgoing transition on a from q 0 loops back to itself. The current state is shaded. Looking at the two configurations above, we might realize that the configuration on q 3 will not lead to an accepting configuration. We also know that it can start with any number of a ‘s, which means that the FA should be in the same state after processing input of any number of a ‘s. Similarly, to delete a transition, simply click on the input symbol of the transition when in Deletor mode.

Dismiss Tab from the menu bar. For example, if we are in the State Creator mode, clicking on the canvas will create new states. Simply click on Load Inputs and load the file to add additional input strings into multi-run pane. Although we are only removing configurations that are about to be rejected, we can remove any configurations for any purpose, and the simulator will stop stepping through input on those configurations.

Let’s take a look at this NFA, which can be accessed through ex1. To freeze the configuration on q 10click on q 10 once, then click the Freeze button.

Click and drag the note to move it. Selecting the tool puts you in the corresponding mode. It will become a solid color when selected, instead of the slightly graded color. However, we might be unsure that this is really the case, as we had removed some configurations.


Building Your First Finite Automaton

Thus, the transition cannot be to q 0and it must be to q 2. If we click Step again, we will see that the last configuration is rejected. Multiple Run from the menu bar. Type “a” in the text box and press Enter. These modes will be described in more detail shortly. You might notice that the q 3 is not used and can be deleted. As the simulator tried to process the next a on this configuration, it realized that there are no outgoing a transitions from q 11 and thus rejected the configuration.

The processed input is displayed in gray, and the unprocessed input is black.

When you are done, it should look like this:. This should give us a pop-up menu that looks like this:. When you are done, click Run Inputs to test your FA on all the input strings. JFLAP will now let you apply predefined graph layout commands to your graph, jflxp can help with a more aesthetically pleasing graph. The transition between two states should look like this:.

The results, Accept or Reject are displayed in the Result column. The following are pictures of the finite automaton used earlier, ex1.

Click Step another three times to find an accepting configuration. If the text box isn’t selected, press Tab to select it, then enter “a”. Thus, we know that q 1 has an outgoing transition on bthat it cannot loop back to q 1.
