Regular languages, Theory of Computation

LTO was the closure of LT under concatenation and Boolean operations which turned out to be identical to SF, the closure of the ?nite languages under union, concatenation and complement. In moving from LT to Recog, we picked up the closure under concatenation and also added closure under Kleene closure (also known as "Kleene-∗" and "iteration closure"). Kleene closure was introduced by Stephen Kleene in his de?nition of the Regular Languages, the closure of the ?nite languages under union, concatenation and Kleene closure.
