This correspondence describes two efficient algorithms for determining whether or not a given finite-state machine has a synchronizing sequence and a distinguishing sequence, respectively, and compares them with the well-known tree method. Compared with the tree method, these new algorithms are easier to implement and require less memory size. Since they do not require keeping and searching a look-back directory, they allow significant speed improvements.
