After the introduction of fuzzy set theory by  Zadeh in 1965, the first mathematical formulation of fuzzy automata was proposed by Wee in 1967, considered as a generalization of fuzzy automata theory. Consequently, numerous works have been contributed towards the generalization of finite automata by many authors such as Cao and Ezawac , Jin et al , Jun , Li and Qiu , Qiu , Sato and Kuroki , Srivastava and Tiwari , Santos , Jun and Kavikumar , Kavikumar et al, [22, 23, 24] especially the simplest one by Mordeson and Malik .
Discrete mathematics is the basis of much of computer science, from algorithms and automata theory to combinatorics and graph theory.
Recently, deep connections have arisen between several very different parts of mathematics such as dynamics (automorphisms of the shift), group theory (Higman-Thompson groups), combinatorics (de Bruijn graphs), and automata theory (synchronization).
Section 4 briefly reviews the learning automata theory. In Section 5 the proposed algorithm is presented.
