For any ...8-CT is actually closed under complement. For any language represented by a DFA with >= 1 accepting state, just complement the set of accepting states. The only language represented by a DFA with 0 accepting states is the empty language, whose complement can be represented with a single state.<br /><br />I think the pair (k+2,k) might be immune to this problem, but (k+1, k) is always closed under complement.FMotahttp://www.blogger.com/profile/14394936561912046612noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3722233.post-57559850503685596192012-11-26T15:52:44.438-06:002012-11-26T15:52:44.438-06:007HS: sets of size at most k.
