SUBM: A CONVERT Program for Constructing the Subset Machine Defined by a Transition System

Unknown author (1968-01-01)

SUBM is a CONVERT program, realized in the CTSS LISP of Project MAC, for constructing the subset machine with the same behaviour as a given transition system. The program interactively collects the six items defining a transition system: its state set, alphabet, transition function, initial states, accepting states and spontaneous transitions. It then computes the subset machine, producing its state set, transition function, initial state and accepting states.
