gsm mapping Short for generalized sequential machine mapping. A function that is the response function of a generalized sequential machine, and therefore generalizes the notion of sequential function. Without constraining the machine to have a finite state-set, generalized sequentiality is equivalent to the following property of initial subwords preservation:

for all u,v in I*, f(uv) has the form f(u)w for some w in O*, where I* and O* are the sets of all input and output strings.
