    although obviously related, an automaton is not the same as automation

    Nor is it the same as automata (theory).

    Yeah, I do. If you're used to programming, Automata are the compiled version of regular expressions. Its pretty simple really, you have a set of states, and each possible input can send you to one of the finite states, from the state you were in due to previous inputs. These are called finite state automata. There are Deterministic finite Automata, (DFA) and Nonderminstic (NFA) which is presented in every class, just to screw with your head: All NFA are reducible to DFA. Its not that hard.

    The next step will be push down automata, which are how Context Free Grammers, which is how programming languages, XML, and the rest are interpreted. A little more interesting.

    Fire away with questions.
