Mixing properties of triangular feedback shift registers

Bernd Schomburg

Abstract: The purpose of this note is to show that Markov chains induced by non-singular triangular feedback shift registers and non-degenerate sources are rapidly mixing. The results may directly be applied to the post-processing of random generators and to stream ciphers in CFB mode.

Category / Keywords: Feedback shift registers, Markov chains, stochastic matrices, rapid mixing
