research overview

The Berkeley Automata and Language Manipulation (BALM) software ..

  • addresses finite automata in two forms, regular finite automata and finite state machines.
  • provides for input and output through BLIF, BLIF-MV or "automata" files.
  • uses symbolic methods to extend the range and speed of automata manipulation.
  • has special routines for solving language equations and the unknown component problem.
  • can solve for the complete sequential flexibility of a component embedded in a system of FSMs.
  • provides visualization of automata.

collaborators
