Michael Sipser Edition 3 Exercise 5 Question 33 (Page No. 241)
Consider the problem of determining whether a $PDA$ accepts some string of the form $\{ww \mid w \in \{0,1\}^{\ast} \}$ . Use the computation history method to show that this problem is undecidable.

Michael Sipser Edition 3 Exercise 4 Question 24 (Page No. 212)
A useless state in a pushdown automaton is never entered on any input string. Consider the problem of determining whether a pushdown automaton has any useless states. Formulate this problem as a language and show that it is decidable.

Michael Sipser Edition 3 Exercise 3 Question 9 (Page No. 188)
Let a $kPDA$ be a pushdown automaton that has $k$ stacks. Thus a $0PDA$ is an $NFA$ and a $1PDA$ is a conventional $PDA$. You already know that $1PDAs$ are more powerful (recognize a larger class of languages) than ... $3PDAs$ are not more powerful than $2PDAs$. (Hint: Simulate a Turing machine tape with two stacks.)

Michael Sipser Edition 3 Exercise 2 Question 47 (Page No. 159)
Let $\Sigma = \{0,1\}$ and let $B$ be the collection of strings that contain at least one $1$ in their second half. In other words, $B = \{uv \mid u \in \Sigma^{\ast}, v \in \Sigma^{\ast}1\Sigma^{\ast}\: \text{and} \mid u \mid \geq \mid v \mid \}$. Give a PDA that recognizes $B$. Give a CFG that generates $B$.

pda self doubt
The language accepted by a DPDA with a final state is more compared to the DPDA with empty stack. DPDA with empty stack accepts LR(0) grammar. Can someone explain in depth/or give good reference links?
