State Machines and Statecharts
A finite state machine (FSM) is a
mathematical model of a system that attempts to reduce the model
complexity by making simplifying assumptions. Specifically, it
- The system being modeled can only assume a
finite number of conditions, called states.
- The system behavior within a given state is
- The system resides in states for significant
periods of time.
- The system may change these conditions only in
a finite number of well-defined ways, called transitions.
- Transitions are the response of the system to
- Transitions take (approximately) zero
