Welcome to the course of Deterministic Finite Automata (DFA).

Here you will learn how to construct Deterministic Finite Automata (DFA) machines in fastest and easiest way.

In this course, we will be solving most commonly asked university problems on Deterministic Finite Automata (DFA).

The concepts which we will study is going to give you all a good understanding of Deterministic Finite Automata and how you can solve any questions asked in examination.

Course Outline:

1. Introduction to Finite State Machine (FSM) / Finite Automata (FA)

  • Prerequisites of Finite State Machine (FSM) / Finite Automata (FA)

  • Cardinality

  • Power

  • How to define Language

  • Introduction to Deterministic Finite Automata (DFA).

2. Construct DFA machine - Start with Substring pattern

  • Design DFA- Start with 'ba' over the ∑={a,b}

  • Design DFA-Start with '011' over the ∑={0,1}

3. Construct DFA machine - Contain Substring pattern

  • Design DFA- contain a substring 'ab' over the ∑={a,b}

  • Design DFA - contain substring '110' over the ∑={0,1}

4. Construct DFA machine - end with Substring pattern

  • Design DFA - end with 'ab' over the ∑={a,b}

  • Design DFA- end with 'bab' over the ∑={a,b}
