Recursive transition network

Recursive transition network

A recursive transition network ("RTN") is a graph theoretical schematic used to represent the rules of a context free grammar. RTNs have application to programming languages, natural language and lexical analysis. Any sentence that is constructed according to the rules of an RTN is said to be "well-formed." The structural elements of a well-formed sentence may also be well-formed sentences by themselves, or they may be simpler structures. This is why RTNs are described as recursive.
