Abstract—This paper investigates the state complexity of combined operations on regular languages. In particular it investigates the state complexity of shuffle of complement and the intersection of complement of two regular languages represented by alternating finite automata.
Index Terms—Alternating finite automata, regular languages, shuffle, state complexity.
