The concept of parsing is a vital program region of the idea of formal languages and automata. The evolution of modem high-level programming languages created a necessity for a basic and theoretically dean technique for writing compilers for those languages. It used to be perceived that the compilation approach needed to be "syntax-directed", that's, the functioning of a programming language compiler needed to be outlined thoroughly by means of the underlying formal syntax of the language. A application textual content to be compiled is "parsed" in line with the syntax of the language, and the thing code for this system is generated in response to the semantics connected to the parsed syntactic entities. Context-free grammars have been quickly came upon to be the handiest formalism for describing the syntax of programming languages, and therefore tools for parsing context-free languages have been devel­ oped. functional concerns resulted in the definition of assorted varieties of limited context-free grammars which are parsable via effective deterministic linear-time algorithms.

Y is x's grandfather's grandmother. y's uncle descends from x down the male line. 3. 5 Show that the following statements hold for all relations R on A: a) R = R + if and only if R is transitive. b) R = R * if and only if R is reflexive and transitive. 6 Let R be a relation on a set A. Show that R * n (R - 1)* is an equivalence on A. For nodes a and b of a graph (A, R), what does it mean if a R*n (R -1)* b? 7 Draw the graph (A, R), where A = {O, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7} , R = { (0, 5), (1, 0), (2, 7), (4, 5), (3, 3), (3, 6), (5,2), (6,5), (7,4)}.

1(b). A depth-first traversal of(A, R) induced by this algorithm with B = A is a permutation of the 21AI symbols enter(a) and exit(a), a E A, that indicates the order in which the procedure TRAVERSE enters and exits nodes during the execution of the algorithm. Note that there are in general many depthfirst traversals of a graph: the procedure TRAVERSE can fix arbitrarily the order in which it handles the edges leaving a node. A substring of a depth-first traversal that begins with enter(a) and ends with exit(a) is called a depth-first traversal of a.

4 Computing Relational Expressions 55 The relation R(E) denoted (or described) by a relational expression E with domain A and range B is defined inductively as follows. ) R(E)=E for all EE2AxB. R((E))=R(E) for all relational expressions E with domain A and range B. R(E*) = R(E)* for all relational factors E over A. R(E-1)=R(E)-1 for all relational factors E with domain A and range B. (3) R(EI E 2 ) = R(E 1) R(E 2 ) for all relational terms EI with domain A and range C and relational factors E2 with domain C and range B.
