Equality sets for recursively enumerable languages
RAIRO - Theoretical Informatics and Applications - Informatique Théorique et Applications, Tome 39 (2005) no. 4, pp. 661-675.

We consider shifted equality sets of the form E G (a,g 1 ,g 2 )={wg 1 (w)=ag 2 (w)}, where g 1 and g 2 are nonerasing morphisms and a is a letter. We are interested in the family consisting of the languages h(E G (J)), where h is a coding and E G (J) is a shifted equality set. We prove several closure properties for this family. Moreover, we show that every recursively enumerable language LA * is a projection of a shifted equality set, that is, L=π A (E G (a,g 1 ,g 2 )) for some (nonerasing) morphisms g 1 and g 2 and a letter a, where π A deletes the letters not in A. Then we deduce that recursively enumerable star languages coincide with the projections of equality sets.
