Synchronization of Pushdown Automata

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4036)


We introduce the synchronization of a pushdown automaton by a sequential transducer associating an integer to each input word. The visibly pushdown automata are the automata synchronized by an one state transducer whose output labels are –1,0,1. For each transducer, we can decide whether a pushdown automaton is synchronized. The pushdown automata synchronized by a given transducer accept languages which form an effective boolean algebra containing the regular languages and included in the deterministic real-time context-free languages.
