2
The Pumping Theorem for Regular Languages If L is regular then N z such that z L and |z| N u,v,w such that z = uvw, |uv| N, and |v| > 0 i [uv i w L]

3
Proof Assume L is regular Then there is a (standardized) DFR P that recognizes L (no EOF or NOOP) Let be N be the number of control states in P Let z L and |z| N Consider P’s accepting computation on input z Let q 0, q 1, …, q n be the sequence of control states in that computation. Then n N.

Then n N. By the pigeonhole principle q j =q k for some j

Example: L = {a n 2 : n 0} Assume L is regular Let N be given by the Pumping Theorem Let z = a N 2 Let u, v, w be given by the Pumping Theorem Then v = a k where 0 < k N Let i = 2 Then uv i w = uv 2 w = uvvw = a N 2 + k Since N 2 < N 2 + k N 2 + N < N 2 + 2N + 1 = (N + 1) 2, N 2 + k is not a square, so uv i w = a N 2 + k L This contradicts the Pumping Theorem, so L is not regular

12
Example: L = {a m b n : m n} Assume L is regular Let N be given by the Pumping Theorem Let z = a N b N Let u, v, w be given by the Pumping Theorem Then v = a k where 0 < k N Let i = 2 Then uv i w = uvvw = a N+k b N Since k > 0, N+k > N, so uv i w = a N+k b N L This contradicts the Pumping Theorem, so L is not regular

Example: L = {a m b n : m n} Assume L is regular Let N be given by the Pumping Theorem Let z = a N b N Let u, v, w be given by the Pumping Theorem Then v = a k where 0 < k N Let i = 0 Then uv i w = uw = a N-k b N Since k > 0, N-k < N, so uv i w = a N-k b N L This contradicts the Pumping Theorem, so L is not regular
