This page of CS notes makes the fundamental difference between finite state automata and Turing machines pretty clear: http://www.cs.hmc.edu/~keller/cs60book/12%20Finite-State%20Machines.pdf<br /><br />The difference is not so much in the way you define the transition function, but in how that function interacts with input and output. Of course those differences change the sort of transition functions you construct, but it's interesting to see where they're similar and where they're different.Levihttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04476780020206011963noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-31044001.post-82796477823098455672015-08-19T10:10:11.049-07:002015-08-19T10:10:11.049-07:00Turing Machines have an infinite tape (given memor...Turing Machines have an infinite tape (given memory constraints), but the states are finite. Though, I won't argue the point, b/c this is based on my education from 15 years ago, and I don't care much about the theory, just the usefulness. Happy to change that line if people nitpick ;)Benjamin Fryhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04520536023463927850noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-31044001.post-78791093644436119442015-08-17T18:57:43.377-07:002015-08-17T18:57:43.377-07:00Umm... a turing machine isn't a finite state m...Umm... a turing machine isn't a finite state machine.

This is opposed to struct/tuple type definitions where you are describing a type inhabited by the Cartesian product of its constituent types' inhabitants.<br /><br />It's probably also meant to be reminiscent of C, Java, etc syntax, but I am not sure the familiarity is worth the possible confusion over the differences!Levihttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04476780020206011963noreply@blogger.com
