Computer Science Logo Style (Volume 3: Beyond Programming) by Brian Harvey

By Brian Harvey

This sequence is for people--adults and teenagers--who have an interest in laptop programming simply because it's enjoyable. the 3 volumes use the brand programming language because the motor vehicle for an exploration of machine technological know-how from the point of view of symbolic computation and synthetic intelligence. brand is a dialect of Lisp, a language utilized in the main complicated examine tasks in desktop technology, particularly in synthetic intelligence. through the sequence, useful programming options (including larger order capabilities and recursion) are emphasised, yet conventional sequential programming can be used while acceptable. within the moment version, the 1st volumes were rearranged in order that illustrative case reviews look with the suggestions they exhibit. quantity 1 features a new bankruptcy approximately greater order services, and the recursion chapters were reorganized for higher readability. quantity 2 contains a new educational bankruptcy approximately macros, an unique strength of Berkeley brand, and new tasks. in the course of the sequence, the bigger software examples were rewritten for better clarity by means of extra large use of knowledge abstraction. In quantity three past Programming, the reader learns that computing device technological know-how contains not only programming pcs, but additionally extra formal how one can take into consideration computing, akin to automata idea and discrete arithmetic. not like so much books on these topics, this quantity offers the guidelines within the type of concrete, usable computing device courses instead of as summary proofs. Examples comprise a software to translate from the declarative general Expression formalism into the executable Finite nation computer notation, and a Pascal compiler written in emblem. the brand courses in those books and the author's unfastened Berkeley brand interpreter can be found through the web or on diskette.

Example text

The same kinds of ideas are used in the proof. Remember that there are four parts to the definition of a regular expression. The alphabet rule provides the fundamental building blocks; the concatenation, alternatives, and repetition rules build large regular expressions recursively out of smaller ones. The translation process follows the same pattern: We start with a procedure to build a trivial two-state machine that only accepts a single letter, then we add three rules for combining smaller machines into a large machine.

In this example it shouldn’t be. See if you can think of a case where it might be; then read the program listing to see the exact algorithm that makes this decision. Again, this construction process may leave unused states for later cleanup. A much more serious problem is that an or construction is likely to produce a nondeterministic machine. For example, here is the machine for [OR [A B] [A C]] 20 Chapter 1 Automata Theory START 1 A 2 B 3 4 A 5 C 6 A 7 A [7 [[7 A 2] [7 A 5] [1 A 2] [2 B 3] [4 A 5] [5 C 6]] [3 6]] Like the unused states, the problem of nondeterminism is left for the end of the program, when procedure determine translates the nondeterministic machine into a deterministic one.

Suppose it stops. try begins its work by evaluating the expression haltp "try "try 34 Chapter 1 Automata Theory Since we’ve said try will stop, given try as input, haltp will output true. It follows, from the definition of try, that try will invoke loop and will not stop. Similarly, if we start with the assumption that try will loop, then haltp must output false and so, from the definition of try, you can see that try will stop. Whatever value haltp outputs turns out to be incorrect. It was the assumption that we could write an infallible haltp that led us into this contradiction, so that assumption must be wrong.
