Degrees of Ambiguity for Parity Tree Automata

pdf-format:


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 ∈ ℕ, such that for every input it has at most k accepting computations. We consider Parity Tree Automata (PTA) and prove that the problem whether a PTA is not unambiguous (respectively, is not boundedly ambiguous, not finitely ambiguous) is co-NP complete, and the problem whether a PTA is not countably ambiguous is co-NP hard.
