Abstract:

The term simulation is construed as a process where the object of investigation is the behavior of a discrete automaton and the means of investigation is a general-purpose computer. The simulation of discrete automata on general-purpose computers is regarded as an autonomous research orientation intended to accelerate the design of digital devices. The method for simulating discrete automata is characterized by three components an input language, i.e., a means of describing the structure and behavior of discrete automata a collection of programs assuring the reproduction of the behavior of discrete automata on all-purpose computers the simulating system the methodology of research into discrete automata, i.e., techniques of specifying their input sequences and analyzing their output sequences.
