You are supposed to submit your assignment in .doc or docx format.

Any other formats like scan images, PDF, zip, rar, ppt and bmp etc will not be accepted.

Objective:

Objective of this assignment is to increase the learning capabilities of the students about

• Deterministic Finite Automaton (DFA)

• Nondeterministic Finite Automaton (NFA)

• Thompson’s Construction Algorithm

NOTE

No assignment will be accepted after the due date via email in any case (whether it is the case of load shedding or internet malfunctioning etc.). Hence refrain from uploading assignment in the last hour of deadline. It is recommended to upload solution file at least two days before its closing date.
