### Defining a context-free grammar for $\{w \in \{0, 1\}^* : \#_0(w) = \#_1(w)\}$ [duplicate]

I have a language where each string in the language has even amount of $0$'s as $1$'s (e.g., $0101$, $1010$, $1100$, $0011$, $10$ are all in the language). I was hoping to define a context-free ...

### Proof for BFS and DFS equivalence

I'm trying to prove (by induction) that BFS in equivalent to DFS, in the sense that they return the same set of visited nodes, but I'm stuck in the middle of some of the cases. Let $G$ be a directed ...
### Proving $L = \{ w : w \neq w^R \}$ over $\Sigma = \{0,1\}$ is CFL
I'm trying to prove $L = \{ w : w \neq w^R \}$ over $\Sigma = \{0,1\}$ is CFL. Define $G = ({S,T}, \Sigma, R, S)$ where $R = S \to 0S0|1S1|0T1|1T0, \; T \to 0T|1T|\varepsilon$. Now I want to show ...
