Abstract

An alternative (tree-based) semantics for a class of regular expressions is proposed that assigns a central rôle to the + operator and thus to nondeterminism and nondeterministic choice. For the new semantics a consistent and complete axiomatization is obtained from the original axiomatization of regular expressions by Salomaa and by Kozen by dropping the idempotence law for + and the distribution law of • over +.
