Greibach normal form
No grammar in GNF can generate the null string. Conversely, every context-free grammar which does not generate the null string can be transformed into an equivalent grammar in Greibach normal form. This can be used to prove that every context-free language can be accepted by a non-deterministic pushdown automaton.
Greibach normal form is named for Sheila Greibach.
