An optimizing finite-state transducer is a nondeterministic finite-state transducer in which states are either maximizing or minimizing. In a given state, the optimal output is the maximum or minimum—over all possible transitions—of the transition output concatenated with the optimal output of the resulting state. The ranges of optimizing finite-state(More)

Inheritance and genericity are programming language features which provide a concise and intuitive syntax for defining operations in terms of operations. They are perhaps the most distinguishing features of " object-oriented " programming languages. Several object-oriented languages contain or are being extended to contain both inheritance and genericity,(More)
