is about the realization of automata (i.e. finite state machines) in (La)TeX.

In some parts of mathematics and computer science, finite automata are used to model certain kinds of computations, and state diagrams are often used to represent these automata. This tag covers questions about drawing these diagrams in TeX and LaTeX.

There are several packages for making automata in LaTeX, including (the most popular and versatile), , and . If your question involves one of these packages, please add the tag for that package as well.

For a comparison of these packages, check out the post Which packages can be used to draw automata?

Here are a few introductions to drawing automata:
