Let us see an example of DFA in Theory of Computation and Automata.

Regular Expression

(a+b)b(a+b)*+(aa)*b  

DFA in Theory of Computation and Automata

Strings of DFA

  • Accepted strings of length 1={b, no more possible string}
  • Accepted strings of length 2={ab, bb, no more possible string }
  • Accepted strings of length 5={abaaa, bbbba, …… and many more similar strings }
  • Accepted strings of length 8={abaaaaab, bbaababa, …… and many more similar strings }
  • Accepted strings of length 10={ababbbaaaa, bbbbbbbbba, …… and many more similar strings }
  • Accepted strings of length 15={aaaaaaaaaaaaaab, bbaaaaaabbbabab, …… and many more similar strings }
  • Accepted strings of length 20={abaaabababababbbaaaba, bbababababababababab, …… and many more similar strings }
  • Accepted strings of length 25={aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaab, bbaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, …… and many more similar strings }
  • And many more similar strings
