Determinisability of register and timed automata

The deterministic membership problem for timed automata asks whether the
timed language given by a nondeterministic timed automaton can be recognised by
a deterministic timed automaton. An analogous problem can be stated in the
setting of register automata. We draw the complete decidability/complexity
landscape of the deterministic membership problem, in the setting of both
register and timed automata. For register automata, we prove that the
deterministic membership problem is decidable when the input automaton is a
nondeterministic oneregister automaton (possibly with epsilon transitions) and
the number of registers of the output deterministic register automaton is
fixed. This is optimal: We show that in all the other cases the problem is
undecidable, i.e., when either (1) the input nondeterministic automaton has two
registers or more (even without epsilon transitions), or (2) it uses guessing,
or (3) the number of registers of the output deterministic automaton is not
fixed. The landscape for timed automata follows a similar pattern. We show that
the problem is decidable when the input automaton is a oneclock
nondeterministic timed automaton without epsilon transitions and the number of
clocks of the output deterministic timed automaton is fixed. Again, this is
optimal: We show that the problem in all the other cases is undecidable, i.e.,
when either (1) the input nondeterministic timed automaton has two clocks or
more, or (2) it uses epsilon transitions, or (3) the number of clocks of the
output deterministic automaton is not fixed.
