Continuous semirings; basics of fixed point theory; algebraic systems as generalization of context – free grammars; normal forms for algebraic systems (canonical two form, Chomsky normal form, operator normal form, Greibach normal form).

Preliminary knowledge:
The  lecture is selfcontained, i. e., it contains all definitions and results needed. The handling of algebraic systems is mathematically oriented (especially the proofs) and so mathematical maturity is needed. Knowledge of  the theory of context – free grammars and languages is helpful.
