Task 1: Minimizing automata and simplifying games
Algorithms for minimizing automata preserving their infinite behaviour will be designed and analysed. An algebraic approach to automata on (game) trees will be developed, modular and hierarchical decomposition of games, and methods for simplifying games will be studied. To make automata-based methods more practical, efficient on-the-fly constructions of automata will be developed.
