A method for analytically studying the two feedback shift-register pseudorandom sources is presented. It is proved, that contrary to the experimental results that have been reported by various authors, their autocorrelation function is a many-valued function. As a result, some care should be exercised in using these sources, and simulation results that have been obtained with these generators might be appropriately reconsidered.
Feedback shift-register pseudorandom generators, pseudorandom generators.
