Visibly Pushdown Transducers
Visibly pushdown automata have been recently introduced by Alur and Madhusudan as a subclass of pushdown automata. This class enjoys nice properties such as closure under all Boolean operations and the decidability of language inclusion. Along the same line, we introduce here visibly pushdown transducers as a subclass of pushdown transducers. We study properties of those transducers and identify subclasses with useful properties like decidability of type checking as well as preservation of regularity of visibly pushdown languages.
