Table 5

Patterns of error for alternative codes
Generator Positions Change Pattern
10β00 c1,c2 Single 01000
c3,c4 Single 00010
c3,p + Double 00011
c4,p + Single 00001
1β010 c2,c3 Single 00100
c4,p + Single 00001

All possible patterns of error caused in corrected base-space sequence by a single, wrongly corrected error in the observed sequence for code with given generator. An error occurs at one of the positions in the ‘Positions’ column; the other member of ‘Positions’ is where the observed sequence is wrongfully corrected. As in Table 3, all error patterns should be multiplied element-wise by the error type (1, αor β) to get the actual pattern.
