Regarding reliability calculations based on probability

  1. Nov 21, 2008 #1
    Hello All !!
    i m facing a problem in finding out any link or material regarding calculation of reliability from probability...
    in simple words..
    if i know the probability of occurence of error in a bit sequence 'B' is 'p' , then what is d probability of error tht would occur at d same bit position in next 'B',
    n now if i add a parity bit to each B to correct this error then by what percent received 'B' will be reliable?
    Does anybody knows or have any article which could give me a hint on this??
    please reply at d earliest

    thank u
