Degrees of Ambiguity of Büchi Tree Automata

Abstract

An automaton is unambiguous if for every input it has at most one accepting computation. An automaton is finitely (respectively, countably) ambiguous if for every input it has at most finitely (respectively, countably) many accepting computations. An automaton is boundedly ambiguous if there is k in N, such that for every input it has at most k accepting computations. We consider nondeterministic Büchi automata (NBA) over infinite trees and prove that it is decidable in polynomial time, whether an automaton is unambiguous, boundedly ambiguous, finitely ambiguous, or countably ambiguous.
