AB - A word w is called a reset word for a deterministic finite automaton A if it maps all states of A to one state. A word w is called a compressing to M states for a deterministic finite automaton A if it maps all states of A to at most M states. We consider several subclasses of automata: aperiodic, D-trivial, monotonic, partially monotonic automata and automata with a zero state. For these subclasses we study the computational complexity of the following problems. Does there exist a reset word for a given automaton? Does there exist a reset word of given length for a given automaton? What is the length of the shortest reset word for a given automaton? Moreover, we consider complexity of the same problems for compressing words.
