2. Homework Equations
none
The Attempt at a Solution
So L is non-regular !
Is my solution correct?
It does appear to be correct. You could simplify it a little by noting that you only need one counter-example to prove a statement false.Fatima Hasan said:Homework Statement

A non-regular language is a type of language that cannot be recognized by a finite state machine, also known as a regular grammar. These languages often have complex or infinite patterns that cannot be represented by a finite number of states.
The Pumping Lemma is a theorem in formal language theory that states that any regular language can be "pumped" or repeated an infinite number of times while still remaining a regular language. This lemma is often used as a proof technique to show that a language is not regular.
The Pumping Lemma is used to prove a language is non-regular by assuming the language is regular and then showing that the lemma does not hold for that language. This is done by selecting a string from the language that is longer than the number of states in the finite state machine, and then showing that it cannot be pumped in a way that satisfies the conditions of the lemma.
No, the Pumping Lemma can only be used to prove that a language is non-regular. It cannot be used to prove that a language is regular because there are many regular languages for which the lemma does not hold. Therefore, if the lemma does not hold for a language, it does not necessarily mean that the language is regular.
The Pumping Lemma is primarily used in theoretical computer science to prove properties of formal languages. However, it can also be applied in areas such as natural language processing, where it can help identify patterns and structures in human languages. Additionally, the Pumping Lemma has been used in cryptography to analyze the security of certain encryption schemes.
