The transducer must be functional. The weights must be (weakly) left divisible (valid for TropicalWeight and LogWeight for instance) and zero-sum-free.

template <class Arc> void Disambiguate(const Fst<Arc> &ifst, MutableFst<Arc> *ofst); |

`A`

:

(TropicalWeight)

`Disambiguate of A`

:

Disambiguate(A, &out); fstdisambiguate a.fst out.fst

`Determinize of A`

:

(For comparison since deterministic implies unambiguous.)

`Disambiguate`

: - Disambiguate:
*exponential (polynomial in the size of the output)* - Non-disambiguable:
*does not terminate*

The disambiguable automata include all unweighted, all acyclic and all determinizable input. There are disambiguable automata that are not determinizable.
