About the Author

Alexander Meduna, Full Professor of Computer Science at the Brno University of Technology, received his PhD from this university in 1988. He has taught mathematics and computer science at various European, Asian, and American universities, including the University of Missouri, where he spent a decade teaching advanced topics of the formal language theory and its applications in computer science. He is the author of the books entitled Automata and Languages (Springer, 2000), Elements of Compiler Design (Taylor and Francis, 2008), and Formal Languages and Computation: Models and Their Applications (CRC Press, 2014) . Along with his former PhD students, he is also the co-author of Grammars with Context Conditions and Their Applications (co-authored by M. Svec, Wiley, 2005), Scattered Context Grammars and Their Applications (co-authored by J. Techet, WIT Press, 2010), and Regulated Grammars and Automata (co-authored by P. Zemek, Springer, 2014). He has published over ninety papers closely related to the subject of this book.Ondrej Soukup received his PhD from the Brno University of Technology in 2017 under the supervision of Alexander Meduna. He has published several studies on modern language models in such distinguished computer science journals as Fundamenta Informatica, International Journal of Foundations of Computer Science, and Theoretical Computer Science.


"The book can ... be fruitfully used by a broad variety of scientists, from researchers working on related theoretical disciplines (mathematicians, computer scientists) to researchers working on various applications (e.g., linguists, engineers, biologists)." (Benedek Nagy, Mathematical Reviews, June, 2020)
"The book provides a concise theoretical treatment of a selection of advanced string-grammar formalisms used particularly in formal language theory. ... This research monograph can serve as an excellent reference for non-standard grammar formalisms with a strong focus on regulation. All relevant results are presented in full detail and proper references are provided to the original literature. The mentioned applications serve as motivation, but the main emphasis is clearly on the exposition of the theoretical results." (Andreas Maletti, zbMATH 1385.68002, 2018)
