An upper bound for transforming self-verifying automata into deterministic ones
RAIRO - Theoretical Informatics and Applications - Informatique Théorique et Applications, Volume 41 (2007) no. 3, pp. 261-265.

This paper describes a modification of the power set construction for the transformation of self-verifying nondeterministic finite automata to deterministic ones. Using a set counting argument, the upper bound for this transformation can be lowered from 2 n to O(2 n n).
