Non-Linear Feedback Shift Registers (NLFSRs) are a generalization of Linear Feedback Shift Registers (LFSRs) in which a current state is a nonlinear function of the previous state. While the theory behind LFSRs is wellunderstood, many fundamental problems related to NLFSRs remain open. Probably the most important one is finding a systematic procedure for constructing NLFSRs with a guaranteed long period. Available algorithms either consider some special cases, or are applicable to small NLFSRs… CONTINUE READING
