4
cs466(Prasad)L13DFAMin4 Observation The states among the state sets {[Ea,Eb], [Ea,Ob]} and {[Oa,Eb], [Oa,Ob]} differ on aspect immaterial for the problem at hand. Why not collapse these state sets into one state each, to get a smaller DFA?

5
cs466(Prasad)L13DFAMin5 Equivalent or Indistinguishable States Recall that a DFA state summarizes the substring consumed so far (that is, the past history). Two states qi and qj are equivalent or indistinguishable (for the future), if, when started in these states, every string causes the machine to either end up in an accepting state for both or end up in a non-accepting state for both. In other words, there is no string that can tell the equivalent states apart for the given language.

cs466(Prasad)L13DFAMin6 Main Idea qi qnqj qm If qm and qn are distinguishable, then so are qi and qj a a
