    Need Help With Formal Language Theory

    I need some assistance with this formal language theory problem. 2. (5 points) When defining a formal language, we usually name our alphabet Σ. Consider a language that has the following alphabet: Σ = {a, b, e} A language that belongs to this alphabet is a set of strings that are...

    Set help

    I'm not sure if this is the correct thread but any help would be appreciated! Rewrite the following listed sets by specifying a defining property of the elements, i.e. in the form{x : P(x)}. [There may be more than one way to do this.] (i). A = {3, 5, 7, . . .} (ii). B =1,12,14, . . ....

    Set problem help

    Hello, I am really struggling with this problem below: Let A, B, and C be sets in a universal set U. We are given n(U) = 77, n(A) = 39, n(B) = 40, n(C) = 23, n(A ∩ B) = 22, n(A ∩ C) = 14, n(B ∩ C) = 13, n(A ∩ B ∩ CC) = 13. Find the following values.(a) n((A ∪ B ∪ C)C) (b) n(AC ∩ BC ∩...

    Help with Proof in Set Thoery

    Hi, I'm new to proof and I want to know if I've proved this and how it could be improved. I'm unsure if I have because of the if and only if condition. Prove A\subseteq B \iff A^c \cup B = U Suppose A\subseteq B . Let x \in A. Then x \in B because A \subseteq B . Now let the absolute...

    Matlab Plotting Euler Iteration Against Exact Solution how to Set Initial Condition

    Hi I have the following code to plot an approximation using Euler's iteration against the exact value of the function. I have used x and y for time and population when coding the Euler iterations and t and m for time and population when plotting the exact function. I can't work out how to...

    Simple question about set members

    I am reading the intro chapter of "Basic Set Theory" by Levy. This is a question relating to Russel's antimony: \neg \exists y \forall x(x \in y \leftrightarrow x \notin x) , where x and y are sets. (They aren't classes since the chapter hasn't covered that yet.) I am confused a bit how any...

    Set Theory

    Hello :) When solving some inequalities, I have come to the following results and I was wondering if there is anything else to be done. 1. A \cup (B \cap C^c) and \left( (A^c \cap B^c) \cup (B \cup C) \right) Working with the right hand side and applying De Morgan's law; \left( (A^c \cap...

    Can we model the experiments as a stochastic process and estimate the sample size?

    I have an image with the size `5575x9440` and I'm implementing a modified version of the algorithm used in this paper on it, but because the code performance is low right now, I have divided the image to `52628` submatrices of the size `25x40 (1000 pixels)` and my first experiments show that...

    no of reflexive relations on a set cant be 2^(n^2-n).

    no of reflexive relations on a set cant be 2^(n^2-n).as we have to take diagnol elements only..so no of reflexive relations are coming out to be n only.if we have a set{1,2,3,4}.then the reflexive relations are only (1,1);(2,2);(3,3);(4,4)..please correct me with reasoning if i'm wrong.

    Extending an independent set in an abelian finite group.

    Hi: Trying to prove that an abelian finite group G with a subgroup H has a subgroup isomorphic with G/H, I stumbled on the following problem: let G be finite abelian and supose A= {a_1, a_2} is an independent subset of G which does not generate G. Can I find a_3 such that {a_1, a_2, a_3} is...
