In science:

Perfect generators remain perfect, but for a constant f the diversity is 1.
Guaranteeing the diversity of number generators
Perfect generators remain perfect, but for f (x) = −x, all the generated xi are 0, and thus the diversity is 1.
Guaranteeing the diversity of number generators
Perfect generators remain perfect, but the generated sequence has diversity 1 when f is a constant function.
Guaranteeing the diversity of number generators
Under these restrictions, we can see via elementary calculus that the choice α = β = pn/2 yields the minimum possible total diversity of α + β = √2n values.
Guaranteeing the diversity of number generators
The above argument shows that if we pro ject the statesequence ~x modulo 2αβ, we get diversity at most α + β = O(√n).
Guaranteeing the diversity of number generators
Our construction showed that the bound √n for the total diversity is asymptotically tight.
Guaranteeing the diversity of number generators
In this mode of operation, the diversity remains maximal as long as k < n/t.
Guaranteeing the diversity of number generators
