state transition diagram

A diagram consisting of circles to represent states and directed line segments to represent transitions between the states. One or more actions (outputs) may be associated with each transition. The diagram represents a finite state machine.

Figure 1 demonstrates the state transition diagram where all the states are at mesh.
Thus we obtain the state transition diagram [G.sub.1] of the state transition operator [bar.T] of the complemented CA [C'.sub.1] with complement vector [F.sub.1] = [(0,0,0,1).sup.t] of C.
In the state transition diagram shown in Figure 2, transition to State 3 occurs when the outdoor air temperature is less than the switchover temperature.
Instead, it constructs a state transition diagram for each pair of component processes (of the program) that interact (call these neighbors).
[1992] recommend the use of a state transition diagram. An overview of the use cases can be given by a use case diagram, that shows for each use case which external entities are involved in it.
In addition, it monitors and controls all SIP session packets based on the state transition diagram. Using this system, we measured the time to detect and block attacks.
In practice, however, the methods were not feasible for systems with many processes because of the state explosion problem: the global state transition diagram is essentially the automata-theoretic product of the sequential processes (these processes being viewed as state-machines), and is therefore of size exponential in K, in general.
State transition diagrams separately depict different states of the system (Figure 6).
