### On the equivalence of linear conjunctive grammars and trellis automata

This paper establishes computational equivalence of two seemingly unrelated concepts: linear conjunctive grammars and trellis automata. Trellis automata, also studied under the name of one-way real-time cellular automata, have been known since early 1980s as a purely abstract model of parallel computers, while linear conjunctive grammars, introduced a few years ago, are linear context-free grammars extended with an explicit intersection operation. Their equivalence implies the equivalence of several...
