Automata and Compiler

(1) [25 marks] Let N be the last two digits of your student number. Design a finite automaton that accepts the language of strings that end with the last four bits of the binary expansion of N. (1.1) Make a regular expression ? of this language. For example the set of strings that end with 101 is expressed by a regular expression (0+1)*101. (1.2) Make an NFA that accepts this expression ?. You should remove any ?-moves that can be done trivially by inspection. (1.3) Make a subset automaton that accepts the language. (1.4) Perform state minimization on the above automaton.

(2) [25 marks] A CFG is given by S ? aSbS, S ? bSaS, S ? c

(2.1) Draw a syntax chart for this grammar. [5]

(2.2) Write a Python program for the recursive descent parser Trace the parser using two strings of at least 10 symbols, one for an accepted case and one for an unaccepted case. Do the trace using the style in the notes. [20]

(3) [25 marks] A sample program for computing the greatest common divisor by recursive call and its object program are given below. Some sample comments are given.

const a=75, b=55;

var x, y;

procedure gcd;

var w;


if y>0 then begin


y:=x ? (x/y)*y;


call gcd;




x:=a; y:=b;

call gcd;
