zbMATH — the first resource for mathematics

Examples
Geometry Search for the term Geometry in any field. Queries are case-independent.
Funct* Wildcard queries are specified by * (e.g. functions, functorial, etc.). Otherwise the search is exact.
"Topological group" Phrases (multi-words) should be set in "straight quotation marks".
au: Bourbaki & ti: Algebra Search for author and title. The and-operator & is default and can be omitted.
Chebyshev | Tschebyscheff The or-operator | allows to search for Chebyshev or Tschebyscheff.
"Quasi* map*" py: 1989 The resulting documents have publication year 1989.
so: Eur* J* Mat* Soc* cc: 14 Search for publications in a particular source with a Mathematics Subject Classification code (cc) in 14.
"Partial diff* eq*" ! elliptic The not-operator ! eliminates all results containing the word elliptic.
dt: b & au: Hilbert The document type is set to books; alternatively: j for journal articles, a for book articles.
py: 2000-2015 cc: (94A | 11T) Number ranges are accepted. Terms can be grouped within (parentheses).

Equational axioms for a theory of automata. (English) Zbl 1088.68117

Summary: A Conway semiring is a starsemiring that satisfies the sum-star-equation and the product-star-equation. Many results in the theory of automata and languages only depend on the equations defining Conway semirings. We introduce semirings, formal power series and matrices, define Conway semirings and state some of their important properties. Then we prove a Kleene Theorem in Conway semirings. Eventually, we discuss the computation of the star of a matrix with entries in a Conway semiring.
