Abstract : This is the final report of the mathematical investigation conducted under Contract No. AF30(602)4296 to determine classes of environments which are amenable to representation by finitestate functions, to classify the corresponding finitestate functions and to study the structure of finitestate machines which generate these functions. The results form the basis for improvement of the algorithms for evolving finitestate machines capable of predicting an environment or of representing a transformation between environments with respect to a given goal.
