A new system of generative formal computer grammars is designed in this book. An unrepresented mongrel of Computer Science, the null or invalid string gets a new representative symbol in this book. The new grammars encapsulate all the functionality of the Chomsky grammars. In addition, using the power of the invalid string, they are able to perform a neat little trick that the vintage Chomsky grammars of 1956 were never really meant to do - generate the empty language. A new kind of Onion Grammar is in town, and it ain't afraid of Nothing!

I graduated with an MA in Computer Science from Wayne State University in 2004. Prior to that, I received my BE in Electronics Engineering from Pune, India. I've worked as a software engineer. Believing in the idea of "Creative destruction" as applying to the current economic recession, I've spent the first few months in 2010 mainly exploring the ideas in this book and writing it. I currently live in India.
