Expressing regular expressions in MSOL over strings

Idea: for each regular expression $r$ of a automaton for parallel inputs $v_1,\ldots,v_n$ associate a formula $F$ with free variables $v_1,\ldots,v_n,p,q$ such that $F$ is valid precisely for whose sets of numbers for which

  • $p$ and $q$ are singletons
  • the strings given by the parts of $v_1,\ldots,v_n$ that start at position $p$ and end at position $q$ satisfy regular expression $F(r)$

that the string (finite set from $p$ to $q$

... ap1 ... aq1 ...
... ap2 ... aq2 ...
... ...     ... ...
... apn ... aqn ...
