Hi Janechii, I read your article and i liked it but i want more information on alternating automata. Please edit some more information about the topic or just email me as soon as possible, my address is email@example.com.
There is a definition of "alternating finite automaton" in Pippenger, Nicholas (1997). Theories of Computability. Cambridge University Press. pp. 93–94. ISBN 0-521-55380-6. Zbl 0879.03013. The definition is in terms of winning strategies in a game and it is not clear whether it is equivalent to the definition given here. There is also a definition in Jiri Wiedermann; Peter van Emde Boas; Mogens Nielsen, eds. (1999). Automata, Languages and Programming: 26th International Colloquium, ICALP'99, Prague, Czech Republic, July 11-15, 1999 Proceedings. Lecture Notes in Computer Science 1644. Springer-Verlag. ISBN 3-540-66224-3. This seems similar but again it is not quite clear that they are the same. Deltahedron (talk) 06:39, 13 October 2012 (UTC)
