Title: A Linear Algorithm for Testing Equivalence of Finite Automata
Authors: Hopcroft, John E.
Karp, R. M.
Keywords: computer science
technical report
Issue Date: Dec-1971
Publisher: Cornell University
Abstract: An algorithm is given for determining if two finite automata with start states are equivalent. The asymptotic running time of the algorithm is bounded by a constant times the product of the number of states of the larger automaton with the size of the input alphabet.
