Im a novice trying to understand the theory of computation.Im trtying to learn about PDA.I understand that it is a machine counterpart of CFG.Im basically referring to Introduction to Automata Theory by John E. Hopcroft and Jeffrey D.Ullman and this video http://youtu.be/8O6FUFwWt5A?t=6m32s by IIT Professor Kamala
I understand the plates placed above spring analogy.What confuses me is that the reference example.It uses a table like the one shown here http://youtu.be/8O6FUFwWt5A?t=6m32s
Where do we get this table and can i use this table for all languages?
Like if a question comes up like this
Can i use the same table and what im supposed to do? I know it might sound stupid,but please help me,im trying to learn.
