Decidability Basic Mathematical Definitions Numbers: N = natural numbers = {1, 2, 3, …} Z = integers = {…, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, …} Q = rational numbers ( expressed in ratios, 1/5, 3/7, 2/9 etc.) R = real numbers ( floating point, 1.5, etc. ) C = complex numbers (2+5i, 27- 3i etc. ) Countable Set: A set is countable if there is a one-to-one correspondence between the set and N, the natural numbers. It can be enumerated. { a, b, c, d, e, ……… } N, Z and Q are countable. R and C are uncountable. Dept. of Computer Science & IT, FUUAST Theory of Computation

Decidability Uncountable Set: Cantor’s Diagonalization s1 = (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, ...) s2 = (1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, ...) s3 = (0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, ...) s4 = (1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, ...) s5 = (1, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 1, ...) s6 = (0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 1, 1, ...) s7 = (1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, ...) ………. s0 = (1, 0, 1, 1, 1, 0, 1, ...)

Decidability R is uncountable Proof: Suppose R is countable List R according to the bijection f: n f(n) _ Dept. of Computer Science & IT, FUUAST Theory of Computation

Decidability R is uncountable Proof: Suppose R is countable List R according to the bijection f: n f(n) _ set x = 0.a1a2a3a4… where digit ai ≠ ith digit after decimal point of f(i) (not 0, 9) e.g. x = … x cannot be in the list! Dept. of Computer Science & IT, FUUAST Theory of Computation

Turing Machine Decidability Turing decidability L is Turing decidable (or just decidable) if there exists a Turing machine M that accepts all strings in L and rejects all strings not in L. Note that by rejection we mean that the machine halts after a finite number of steps and announces that the input string is not acceptable. Acceptance, as usual, also requires a decision after a finite number of steps. Dept. of Computer Science & IT, FUUAST Theory of Computation

Decidability Decidability Turing Recognizability L is Turing recognizable if there is a Turing machine M that recognizes L, that is, M should accept all strings in L and M should not accept any strings not in L. This is not the same as decidability because recognizability does not require that M actually reject strings not in L. M may reject some strings not in L but it is also possible that M will simply "remain undecided" on some strings not in L; for such strings, M's computation never halts.

Decidability A language is recursively enumerable if some Turing machine accepts it. Dept. of Computer Science & IT, FUUAST Theory of Computation

Dept. of Computer Science & IT, FUUAST Theory of Computation
Decidability A language is recursive if some Turing machine accepts it and halts on any input string. OR A language is recursive if there is a membership algorithm for it. Dept. of Computer Science & IT, FUUAST Theory of Computation

Dept. of Computer Science & IT, FUUAST Theory of Computation
Decidability A language is recursively enumerable if and only if there is an enumeration procedure for it. If a language L is recursive then there is an enumeration procedure for it Dept. of Computer Science & IT, FUUAST Theory of Computation

Decidability Theorem: S is an infinite countable set, the powerset 2s of S is uncountable Since S is countable, we can write S = { s1 , s2 , s3 , s4 , …….. } where S consists of s1 , s2 , s3 , s4 , ….. elements and the powerset 2s is of the form: { {s1}, {s2 }, … {s1 , s2 }, ….. {s1 , s2 , s3 , s4 } … } Dept. of Computer Science & IT, FUUAST Theory of Computation
