It is an object of the present invention to utilize a recurrence relation and output equation having distinct pair distances.
In addition, the order k of the recurrence relation which encodes the same amount of states is reduced by a factor of n, or 8 for GF In the present invention, a maximal length recurrence relation is utilized for optimal results.
For a recurrence relation, the output element is generated from a linear function of the state of the register and the coefficients, as defined by equation (1).

For example, the recurrence relation g(n) = g(n-1) + 2n -1 g(0) = 0 defines the function f(n) = n^2, and the recurrence relation f(n) = f(n-1) + f(n-2) f(1) = 1 f(0) = 1 defines the famous Fibanocci sequence 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,....
Recurrence relations with more than one variable: In some applications we may consider recurrence relations with two or more variables.

 Why and how
These are (i) recurrence relations as general ways to see what happens between consecutive terms of a sequence; and (ii) the general term of a sequence as a function of the number of that term.
And one final note on recurrence relations of the type we are dealing with here, if we know the recurrence relation of a sequence and we know its first term, then we know the sequence completely.
The point that we are trying to make is that recurrence relations should be grounded in the actual physical problem and not in a table of values that may be guessed from small values of the physical pattern.

 Sapphire: Efficient prototyping of recurrences
Recurrence relations is the mathematical form used to express many important problems.
Recurrence relations form the core of a computational model of a PDE. For many problems, such as those in computational fluid dynamics, formulating an appropriate recurrence relation is a non-trivial task.
The natural way of expressing a recurrence relation in a programming language such as C++ would be as recursive function calls mimicing the recursive equations from the mathematical formulation.

 Recurrence Relations   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Recurrence Relations are another means of defining a sequence of numbers.
Recurrence relations define a term of the sequence in terms of previous terms of the sequence and, possibly, other functions of n.
Although the methods given above find correct solutions to recurrence relations some caution must be exercised in applying the methods blindly since there are some important nuances in the theory behind the methods and the theory has not been covered here.

For formula like these, called recurrence relations, it is desired to find a unique solution, a solution expressed only in terms of n, so that any number of the sequence can be calculated directly.
In general The general solution of the a recurrence relation of the form an+1 = dan, where n(0, d constant, and a0 = A is unique and given by: an = a0dn = Adn, n(0 This then is a discrete function whose domain is N, the set of positive integers.
The final recurrence is the total number of all subsets that contain "n" (an-2) and those that don't contain "n" (an-1), and we have an = an-2 + an-1.

Such a recurrence relation is especially suitable for calculating these functions for successive values of a parameter.
In many cases however the wanted solution is dominated by other solutions of the recurrence relation, and so forward computation of the solution is not a stable process.
Research in the department concentrates on the development of algorithms for the stable evaluation of non-dominant solutions of linear recurrence relations and recurrence systems, and on the acceleration of the convergence of existing algorithms.

 Some Details About the Parma Recurrence Relation Solver
It is more difficult to characterize completely the set of such recurrences that have a solution in closed form: PURRS will attempt to express the solution using polynomials, exponentials and factorials, or a suitable combination of the same functions.
These are recurrences of the form x(n) = a * x(n/b) + p(n), where a is positive, b > 1 and p(n) is a function whose domain is the set of positive integers, and the value n/b is always understood as its integer part.
A typical example of this class is the recurrence satisfied by the worst-case complexity of the merge-sort algorithm.

Substituting the answer in the recurrence relation: LHS = (3)^n - (-1)^n = 9[3^(n-2)] - (-1)^(n-2) RHS = 2[(3)^(n-1) - (-1)^(n-1)] + 3[(3)^(n-2) - (-1)^(n-2)] = 6[3^(n-2)] + 2(-1)^(n-2)] + 3[(3)^(n-2)] -3(-1)^(n-2)] = 9[3^(n-2)] - 1 (-1)^(n-2)] = LHS!

Perhaps more importantly, the use of a homogeneous catalog reduces the uncertainty in the recurrence rates of moderate to large earthquakes in CASR by nearly an order of magnitude.
