# what do the tape contents of a turing machine look like after halting?

what do the tape contents of Turing machine look like after halting? Are there empty symbols after the qaccept or reject?

• The tape contents is completely arbitrary — the tape is left as is when the Turing machine halts. The states $q_{\mathrm{accept}},q_{\mathrm{reject}}$ that you mention do not appear on the tape, so your question doesn't make much sense to me. Apr 22 at 13:56
