## Study Notes

### Motivation behind Automata Theory

• The main motivation behind developing Automata Theory is to create a mathematical model to describe and analyze the behavior of computers and other computational devices.

### Basic Concepts in Theory of Computation

• A string in the context of Theory of Computation is a finite sequence of symbols chosen from a particular character set or alphabet.

### Closure Representation

• L* in Closure Representation represents the set of all possible strings that can be generated by concatenating zero or more strings from the language L.

### Alphabets in Theory of Computation

• Alphabets (Σ) in the context of Theory of Computation are finite sets of symbols or characters used to build strings.

### Building Blocks of Theory of Computation

• The smallest building block in the Theory of Computation is a symbol, which is a single character or element from the alphabet.
