Alphabets - strings and representation, Theory of Computation

A finite, nonempty ordered set will be called an alphabet if its elements are symbols, or characters. A finite sequence of symbols from a given alphabet will be called a string over the alphabet. A string that consists of a sequence a1, a2, . . . , an of symbols will be denoted by the juxtaposition a1a2 ...an. Strings that have zero symbols, called empty strings, will be denoted by e.

{0, 1} is a binary alphabet, and {1} is a unary alphabet. 11 is a binary string over the alphabet {0, 1}, and a unary string over the alphabet {1}.

11 is a string of length 2, |ε| = 0, and |01| + |1| = 3.

Example-The string consisting of a sequence αβ followed by a sequence β is denoted αβ. The string αβ is called the concatenation of α and β. The notation αi is used for the string obtained by concatenating i copies of the string α.
