2
Fall 2006Costas Busch - RPI2 Problem is reduced to problem If we can solve problem then we can solve problem

3
Fall 2006Costas Busch - RPI3 Language is reduced to language There is a computable function (reduction) such that: Definition:

4
Fall 2006Costas Busch - RPI4 Computable function : which for any string computes There is a deterministic Turing machine Recall:

5
Fall 2006Costas Busch - RPI5 If: a: Language is reduced to b: Language is decidable Then: is decidable Theorem: Proof: Basic idea: Build the decider for using the decider for

6

7
Fall 2006Costas Busch - RPI7 Example: is reduced to:

8
Fall 2006Costas Busch - RPI8 Turing Machine for reduction DFA We only need to construct:

14
Fall 2006Costas Busch - RPI14 Observation: In order to prove that some language is undecidable we only need to reduce a known undecidable language to
