Design a Turing machine that computes the function



1 if w is even



0 if w is odd.


Expert Answer

Step 1

To discover whether a string is even or odd, just examine the LSB (least significant bit).

  • If LSB is 1 => odd ,
  • If LSB is 0 => even.

For instance,

  • String “1001” is odd and
  • String “1000” is even.


Step 2
  • Three states are needed only.
  • Move right until a # (end of the string) is encountered.
  • When encountered a #, then move left.
  • Check the bit:
    1. If bit is 1 => Numberw&rdqu...
