I am trying to find a transition sequence for both 12 and 13 bit balanced Gray codes. I know there are some excellent papers on the topic of deriving these sequences available on the internet, but I regret to say that it's been a while since I've been in a formal math class and I can't quite follow them to the end. Any help would be greatly appreciated! -Erik

May I point you to - there doesn't seem to be a question here other than 'help me understand this vague thing'. If you ask about specific sticking points (and at least show what you do know) then you will attract more answers. – David Roberts Jan 21 '11 at 4:55
That faq will also point you to some sites that may be better suited for this question – Gerry Myerson Jan 21 '11 at 5:55
You mean binary Gray code? There is a construction in the Wikipedia article for Gray codes. – Andrew D. King Jan 21 '11 at 14:09
