We show that for every deterministic bottom-up tree transducer, a unique equivalent transducer can be constructed which is minimal. The construction is based on a sequence of normalizing transformations which, among others, guarantee that non-trivial output is produced as early as possible. For a deterministic bottom-up transducer where every state produces(More)
Tree walking transducers are an expressive formalism for reasoning about XSLT-like document transformations. One of the useful properties of tree transducers is decidability of type checking: given a transducer and input and output types, it can be checked statically whether the transducer is type correct, i.e., whether each document adhering to the input(More)
