For example 4.1.9, so that the example in the textbook is incorrect, and that the machine does not perform a right shift as indicated. Then fix the machine. For 4.1.6, the problem lists configurations as ordered 4-tuples, while the book says valid configurations are either ordered 3-tuples, or ordered pairs. For the purposes of this problem consider the ordered 4-tuple to have the following interpretation: The tuple (q,w,a,u) means the machine is in state q, w is to the left of the read/write head, a is at the read/write head, and u is to the right of the read/write head. Under this interpretation, finish the problem.
