Sanfoundry offers internships in "Automata Theory". Read the complete details below regarding the internship requirements, eligibility criterior and the application process.

## Pre-requisite / Skillset for Automata Theory Internship

1. Intern should have fundamental understanding on the core concepts in Automata Theory and Theory of Computation.

2. Should know how to translate between different models of Computation.

3. Ability to design Grammars and Automata (recognizers) for different language classes.

4. Being knowledgeable about restricted models of Computation (Regular, Context Free) and their relative powers.

5. Must be able to classify a problem with respect to different models of Computation.

6. Skills in formal reasoning is required.

7. Should be capable of reducing a problem to a formal model, with an emphasis on semantic precision and conciseness.

8. Must be capable of stating and explaining the relevance of the Church-Turing thesis.

9. Should be able to analyse and design, Turing machines, formal languages and grammars.

10. Must have adequate knowledge on topics such as algorithm, computability, decidability, and complexity through problem solving.

## Automata Theory Internship Test

Intern has to take Automata Theory internship test in which they will be asked 50 multiple-choice questions. They have to score grade A or A* on this test to be eligible for the internship. Here’s a sample set of questions on the Automata Theory topic.

1. Assume the R is a relation on a set A, aRb is partially ordered such that a and b are _____________
(A) reflexive
(B) transitive
(C) symmetric
(D) reflexive and transitive

Explanation: A partially ordered relation refers to one which is Reflexive, Transitive and Antisymmetric.

2. State true or false:
Statement: Hamiltonian cycles through any fixed edge is always even, so if one such cycle is given, the second one must also exists.
(A) true
(B) false

Explanation: Handshaking lemma states that ‘Every finite undirected graph has an even number of vertices with odd degree.

3. Which of the functions can a turing machine not perform?
(A) Copying a string
(B) Deleting a symbol
(C) Accepting a pal
(D) Inserting a symbol

Explanation: Different turing machines exist for operations like copying a string, deleting a symbol, inserting a symbol and accepting palindromes.

4. State true or false:
Statement: Using a two track tape, we can use a semi infinite tape to simulate an infinte tape.
(A) true
(B) false

Explanation: A TM with a semi-infinite tape means that there are no cells to the left of the initial head position. A TM with a semi infinite tape simulates a TM with an infinite tape by using a two-track tape.

5. Statement 1: NFA computes the string along parallel paths.
Statement 2: An input can be accepted at more than one place in an NFA.
Which among the following options are most appropriate?
(A) Statement 1 is true while 2 is not
(B) Statement 1 is false while is not
(C) Statement 1 and 2, both are true
(D) Statement 1 and 2, both are false

Explanation: While the machine runs on some input string, if it has the choice to split, it goes in all possible way and each one is different copy of the machine. The machine takes subsequent choice to split further giving rise to more copies of the machine getting each copy run parallel. If any one copy of the machine accepts the strings, then NFA accepts, otherwise it rejects.
