Abstract

Generally Finite Automata is classified as Nondeterministic Finite Automata and Deterministic Finite Automata. In this paper we classify Nondeterministic Finite Automata based on two factors. 1. Dual loop 2. Position, namely starting state, ending state and intermediate state (except starting and ending state). Using the aforementioned factors, loops are placed at any two positions out of available three positions. As a result we can get three NFA types, namely 1. Containing condition NFA 2. Containing and starting condition NFA 3. Containing and ending condition NFA.
