What is a Transition in a Automata?

Card Puncher Data Processing


In a automata, a Transition is the fact of going from one state to another.

It is represented by a edge in a graph.

It's a function that:

  • takes as arguments a state and an input symbol (The transition to perform)
  • and returns a state

Transitions are triggered by events (Ex: click, link, …)


<math>\delta</math> is the symbol for a transition function
