Resources For Finite Automata

The material in Section 2.2 of the book on scanning presumes some knowlege of finite automata. The prequisites of this course do not cover that, though you may have taken a class (algorithms or models of computation) which did. We will go over FA in class, and the following resources may be helpful as well:

Please do not hesitate to visit me at office hours, espcially if this material is new to you! Also, the CD that comes with PLP has a brief introduction to FA (CD section 2.4.1). The links above may be more helpful though.
