A new algorithm for asynchronous machines is presented. The problem is formulated and solved in graph-theoretic terms. A graph-embedding algorithm in an n-cube developed in Sections I-III is used to establish the encoding method. The resulting critical race free encoding minimizes the dimensions of the internal variables and the transition times. This method should be especially interesting for large incomplete machines.
