An inference algorithm for regular tree languages

Abstract [en]

We present a randomized inference algorithm for regular tree languages. The algorithm takes as input two disjoint finite nonempty sets of trees P and N, and outputs a nondeterministic finite tree automaton that accepts every tree in P, and rejects every tree in N. The output automaton typically represents a non-trivial generalisation of the examples given in P and N. To obtain compact output automata, we use a heuristics similar to bisimulation minimization.The algorithm has time complexity of O(|N||P|^2). Experiments are conducted on a prototype implementation, and the empirical results appear to second the theoretical results.
