When these digits are transmitted and received electronically, errors may occur and any digit may be misidentified, thus giving rise to a string of errors, one for each digit. For the case where m binary words of length n are transmitted and received, we obtain the probability distribution of the error tuple, which shows the number of words having i errors, as i varies from 1 to n. Related probabilities are obtained and also the probability and moment generating functions are derived.]]>Balakrishnan, N.,1997Greenstein, L.J.,1974Johnson, L., S. Kotz and N.
