Classification of standard alphabets

The master thesis of Łukasz Wołochowski continues the study of standard alphabets and classifies  all alphabets of dimension up to 8, with regard to their standardness. Here is the thesis and here is its abstract:

This thesis concerns Turing machines with atoms. There exist alphabets with atoms over which Turing machines do not determinize and a method of alphabet classification is known. In this thesis we show and implement an improved version of this algorithm. The improvement is made by using advanced algorithms from the theory of Constraint Satisfaction Problems, as well as algebraic methods to reduce the size of a problem. As a result, we obtain a classification of all alphabets of dimension 8.
