On a conjecture about slender context-free languages

Lucian Ilie
1994 Theoretical Computer Science  
., On a conjecture about slender context-free languages, Theoretical Computer Science 132 (1994) 4277434.  ...  We prove that every slender context-free language is a union of paired loops, thus confirming a conjecture of Paun and Salomaa to appear.  ...  One of the main problems about slender context-free languages concerns their characterization.  ...

The Fliess conjecture states that a commutative language is context-free if and only if it is a B-CF language. The author sharpens his earlier results on the Fliess conjecture.  ...  Summary: “We survey the main results concerning slender lan- guages. We characterize slender regular and context-free languages and show that slenderness is decidable for context-free languages.  ... 

Length considerations in context-free languages

Danny Raz
1997 Theoretical Computer Science  
Thus, we present a length characterization for bounded context-free languages. We then study slender context-free languages, i.e., those containing at most a constant number of words of each length.  ...  We first show that the context-free languages for which the number of words of every length is bounded by a fixed polynomial are exactly the bounded context-free languages in the sense of Ginsburg (1966  ...  P&m and Salomaa conjectured in [7] that every slender context-free language is a UPL, so that the slender context-free languages form a family of unambiguous, but not necessarily deterministic, context-free  ...

A few open problems are posed: it is conjectured that a language is slender context-free iff it is the finite union of paired loops.  ...  We call such a set of rules a context- free grammar because these rules act like a context-free grammar in the formal language sense.  ... 

A characterization of poly-slender context-free languages

Lucian Ilie, Grzegorz Rozenberg, Arto Salomaa
2000 RAIRO - Theoretical Informatics and Applications  
We give a precise characterization of the kpoly-slender context-free languages. The well-known characterization of the k-poly-slender regular languages is an immediate consequence of ours.  ...  For a non-negative integer k, we say that a language L is k-poly-slender if the number of words of length n in L is of order O(n k ).  ...  For any poly-slender context-free language L, there exists a k 0 such that # L (n) = (n k ).  ...

On lengths of words in context-free languages

Lucian Ilie
2000 Theoretical Computer Science  
These upper bounds depend on the given language only. Using this result, we give two new and simple proofs for the decidability of the slenderness problem for context-free languages.  ...  Moreover, due to the constructivity of our proof, we are able to ÿnd e ectively a representation as union of paired loops for an arbitrary slender context-free language; even a representation as a disjoint  ...  Also, I thank an anonymous referee for suggesting the result of Ginsburg and Spanier on bounded languages.  ...

Multi-pattern languages

Lila Kari, Alexandru Mateescu, Gheorghe Pǎun, Arto Salomaa
1995 Theoretical Computer Science  
We investigate languages consisting of words following one of the given finitely many patterns.  ...  We obtain results about decidability, characterization, hierarchies and special classes of multi-pattern languages.  ...  The decidability status of the reverse problem (whether or not a given multi-pattern language is context-free) is open.  ...
