Hi;

I know what a regular expression is but I have no idea how to use it with cellular automata.

Have you tried the Stack Exchange or Stack Overflow?

Am getting a DFA with 5 states.

Hi evinda,

I understood the language to be

Since there are algorithms to convert from RE to NFA to DFA to minimized DFA, someone has written a software for that: JFLAP

Enter the RE as: 1*(00+010+!)(01)*

edit: corrected the RE

1. After entering the RE, choose convert->"convert to NFA"

2. "Do All" and "export"

3. Convert->"convert to DFA" and "complete" and "Done"

4. Convert->"minimize DFA". Select root of the tree and "complete subtree", and "Finish"

5. Click "complete" and "Done"

I was unable to upload earlier, this is the DFA I got.

Where did you get the third Kleene star from?

My bad, here is the diagram we get for the corrected expression.

Doesn't that DFA also accept 0101?
