Is the language of words that are unbalanced in the first half context-free?

(Practice exam question in computational models) Definition: A word $w\in \{0,1\}^*$ is called balanced if it contains the same number of $0$s as $1$s. Let $L = \{w\in \{0,1\}^*\mid |w|$ is even and ...

Is a^mb^n where m=n^2 a CFL?

Is $a^mb^n$ where $m=n^2$ a CFL? I have a doubt regrading this problem. Say if we pop $n$ number of $a's$ from the stack for each $b$ then it is a CFL (to be exact DCFL) right? On the other hand I ...

Acceptance problem for CFGs is not regular

Let $ACFG$ be the language of all encodings $(C,x)$ where $C$ is a context free grammar that generates a language containing $x$, i.e. $ACFG$ is the acceptance problem for context free grammars. It ...

Can the pumping lemma for context free languages be extended to any subword?

It is known that in the case of a Regular Language $L$ , the pumping lemma can be extended to apply to any sufficiently long subword of the language, ie, if $uwv \in L$ and $|w| \ge p$ then we can ...
