This paper presents a derivation of a linear feedback function for an r-stage feedback shift register that results in branchless less cycles of equal length. The linear recurrence relationship and generating function, which characterize the r-stage feedback shift register's behavior, are used to prove that each of the 2r states lie in cycles of equal length.
