The error clustering properties of digital communication systems are examined. In the past, the error behavior of digital communications systems has been investigated in terms of their input-output behavior. Actual communication systems components and the physical interference processes present have not been taken into account. In this paper, an attempt is made to examine the relationship between the actual communication system components and the error sequence generated by this system. Two measures are defined which characterize this relationship quantitatively. Two classes of digital communication systems are considered. The first class considers the error behavior of various modulation formats in the presence of correlated Gaussian noise. The second class considers a communication system employing a receiver with memory over fading channels. The examples compute the measures related to the occurrence of double errors.
