A Pumping Lemma for Pushdown Graphs of Any Level

Document 1.pdf (583 KB)


Abstract

We present a pumping lemma for the class of epsilon-contractions of pushdown graphs of level n, for each n. A pumping lemma was proposed by Blumensath, but there is an irrecoverable error in his proof; we present a new proof. Our pumping lemma also improves the bounds given in the invalid paper of Blumensath.
