      Brzozowski, Janusz; Sinnamon, Corwin (Springer, 2017-03-06)
      A language L over an alphabet Σ is suffix-convex if, for any words x,y,z∈Σ∗, whenever z and xyz are in L, then so is yz. Suffix-convex languages include three special cases: left-ideal, suffix-closed, and suffix-free ...
    • Complexity of Proper Prefix-Convex Regular Languages 

      Brzozowski, Janusz; Sinnamon, Corwin (Springer, 2017-06-27)
      A language L over an alphabet Σ is prefix-convex if, for any words x,y,z∈Σ∗, whenever x and xyz are in L, then so is xy. Prefix-convex languages include right-ideal, prefix-closed, and prefix-free languages, which were ...
