Rational Transductions

A rational transducer \(M\) is a 6-tuple \((S, \Sigma, \Delta, \tau, s_0, F)\), where \(S\) is a finite set of states, \(\Sigma\) and \(\Delta\) are input and output alphabets respectively, the transition relation \(\tau\) is a finite relation between \(S \times \Sigma^*\) and \(S \times \Delta^*\), \(s_0 \in S\) is the initial state and \(F\subseteq S\) is the set of final states.

For alphabets Σ,Δ\Sigma, \Delta, a transduction is a subset of Σ×Δ\Sigma^*\times\Delta^*. If AA is a transducer as above, then (A)\top (A) denotes its generated transduction, namely the set of all pairs (u,v)X×Y(u, v)\in X^*\times Y^* such that (s0,u,f,v)τ(s_0, u, f, v)\in \tau for some fFf \in F.

For a transduction TX×YT\subseteq X^*\times Y^* and a language LXL\subseteq X^*, we write TL={vYuL:(u,v)T}TL=\{v\in Y^*|\exists u\in L:(u,v)\in T\}.

Prove/disprove the following statements:

  • Composition of two rational transductions is a rational transduction.
  • Inverse of a rational transduction is a rational transduction.
  • For a regular language RXR\subseteq X^* and a rational transduction TX×YT\subseteq X^*\times Y^*, TRTR is regular.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.
