On the power of real-time turing machines under varying specifications
We investigate the relative computing power of Turing machines with differences in the number of work tapes, heads pro work tape, instruction repertoire etc. We concentrate on the k-tape, k-head and k-head jump models as well as the 2-way multihead finite automata with and without jumps. Differences in computing power between machines of unlike specifications emerge under the real-time restriction. In particular it is shown that k+1 heads are more powerful than k heads for real-time Turing machines.
