On Pseudorandom Sequences and Their Application

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4123)


A large family of finite pseudorandom binary sequences is presented, and also tested “theoretically” for pseudorandomness. The optimal way of implementation is discussed and running time analysis is given. Numerical calculations are also presented.
