Abstract:

It is shown that bisimulation equivalence is decidable for the processes generated by (nondeterministic) pushdown automata where the pushdown behaves like a counter, in fact. Also regularity, i.e. bisimulation equivalence with some finite-state process, is shown to be decidable for the mentioned processes.
