Pushdown Automaton (the idea)
• Nondeterministic finite automaton + stack
• Stack has unlimited size, but machine can only manipulate (push,
pop, read) symbol at the top Input 𝑎𝑏𝑎𝑎

Pushdown Automaton (formal)
A PDA is a 6‐tuple

• : 􏵺 􏵺
􏵺 is the transition function
• •
􏵹 is the start state
is the set of final states

CFGs vs. PDAs
The language of a PDA is the set of all strings it accepts.
Theorem: The class of languages recognized by PDAs is exactly the context‐free languages.
Theorem 1: Every CFG has an equivalent PDA Theorem 2: Every PDA has an equivalent CFG

Suppose language is generated by CFG = Goal: Construct a PDA 􏵹
recognizing
Idea: will guess the steps of the CFG derivation of its input , and use its stack to check the derivation
Generalized PDA: Can push an entire string to the stack in one move

Algorithmic Description
1.
Place and the start variable on the stack Repeat forever:

a)
If the top of the stack holds variable : Nondeterministically guess a rule Replace with on the stack
b) c)
If the top of the stack holds terminal :
Pop and verify that it matches the next input char
If the top of the stack holds : Accept if the input is empty
