In an earlier paper by Lum, Yuen, and Dodd  experimental results comparing six commonly used key-to-address transformation techniques were presented. One transformation in that study referred to as “Lin's method” is an elaborate technique based on radix transformation. Andrew Lin has since pointed out to the authors that his method of transformation  consists of not just a radix transformation algorithm but also the specific ways the values of p and q are chosen as well as hardware implementation to carry out the steps of this transformation in an efficient manner. Since our study was intended for general radix transformations rather than Lin's specific implementation, we think it is more appropriate to change the label of that transformation in  from “Lin's method” to “generalized radix transformation method” and we use this term here.
