So if we have a complex equation in regular algebra we can use properties like distrbuivity, associativity and commutativity to make an equation simper or more compact.
Can we use some sort of techniques on regular expressions to make them more simpler?
For example what is the relation between concatenation and kleene star? If we have a concatenation with an union between two expressions that have kleene star can we draw a conclusion using some sort of property to distribute the concatenation somehow or do something else. I just started learning this subjects and I may not be very good at expressing what I think right now.
