  • Automata theory is an important subject in computer science and quite consequently, simulation of automata for pedagogical purposes is an important topic in computer science education research. This article reviews the major initiatives in the field of simulation of automata in the last five decades with emphasis on those automata simulators actually used at universities for teaching. A classification of the automata simulators on the basis of their design paradigms has been developed where… CONTINUE READING
