An exact upper bound is found for the number of maximal compatible subsets of an n-state incompletely specified sequential machine (ISSM). This bound, on the order of 3n/3, iS also a worst case computer storage and computation time limit for any algorithm to find maximal compatibles.
Incompatibility graph, incompletely specified sequential machine (ISSM), maximal compatible, state mninimization, worst case bound.
