TbitLen(X)

Abbreviation(s) and Synonym(s):

None

Definition(s):

  A truncation function that outputs the most significant (i.e., leftmost) bitLen bits of the input bit string, X, when the bit length of X is greater than bitLen; otherwise, the function outputs X. For example, T2(1011) = 10, T3(1011) = 101, T4(1011) = 1011, and T5(1011) = 1011.
