Recursively Enumerable and Recursive Languages 1 Definition: A language is recursively enumerable if some Turing machine accepts it 2 Let L be a recursively enumerable language and M the Turing Machine that accepts it For string w: if w L then M halts in a final state if w L then M halts in a non-final state or loops forever 3 Definition: A language is recursive if some Turing machine accepts it and halts on any input string In other words: A language is recursive if there is a membership algorithm for it 4 Let L be a recursive language and M the Turing Machine that accepts it For string w: if w L then M halts in a final state if w L then M halts in a non-final state 5 We will prove: 1. There is a specific language which is not recursively enumerable (not accepted by any Turing Machine) 2. There is a specific language which is recursively enumerable but not recursive 6 Non Recursively Enumerable Recursively Enumerable Recursive 7 A Language which is not Recursively Enumerable 8 We want to find a language that is not Recursively Enumerable This language is not accepted by any Turing Machine 9 Consider alphabet {a} Strings: a, aa, aaa, aaaa, 1 2 3 4 a a a a 10 Consider Turing Machines that accept languages over alphabet {a} They are countable: M1 , M 2 , M 3 , M 4 , 11 Example language accepted by M i L( M i ) {aa, aaaa, aaaaaa} L( M i ) {a , a , a } 2 4 6 Alternative representation 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 a a a a a a a L( M i ) 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 12 1 2 3 4 a a a a L ( M1 ) 0 1 0 1 L( M 2 ) 1 0 0 1 L( M 3 ) 0 1 1 1 L( M 4 ) 0 0 0 1 13 Consider the language L {a : a L( M i )} i i L consists from the 1’s in the diagonal 14 1 2 3 4 a a a a L ( M1 ) 0 1 0 1 L( M 2 ) 1 0 0 1 L( M 3 ) 0 1 1 1 L( M 4 ) 0 0 0 1 L {a , a ,} 3 4 15 Consider the language L L {a : a L( M i )} i i L {a : a L( M i )} i i L consists of the 0’s in the diagonal 16 1 2 3 4 a a a a L ( M1 ) 0 1 0 1 L( M 2 ) 1 0 0 1 L( M 3 ) 0 1 1 1 L( M 4 ) 0 0 0 1 L {a , a ,} 1 2 17 Theorem: Language L is not recursively enumerable 18 Proof: Assume for contradiction that L is recursively enumerable There must exist some machine Mk that accepts L L( M k ) L 19 1 2 3 4 a a a a L ( M1 ) 0 1 0 1 L( M 2 ) 1 0 0 1 L( M 3 ) 0 1 1 1 L( M 4 ) 0 0 0 1 Question: M k M1 ?
