Patterns of error for the ECC generator
Positions Change Pattern
c2,c3 Single 00100
c4,p + Single 00001
c1,c4 Triple 01110
c1,p + Quadruple 01111

All possible patterns of error caused in corrected base-space sequence by a single wrongly corrected error in the observed sequence of type +d (where d=1, αor β). The ‘Positions’ column indicates all possible pairs of positions at which an error can occur and be wrongfully corrected; it is not necessary to identify which member of the pair corresponds to which form of error as the resulting pattern is the same. In all cases the error pattern should be multiplied element-wise by the error type (d) to get the actual pattern (e.g. a wrongly corrected + βerror at c2results in an error pattern of 00β00).
