Abstract : Suitable approximations for economy of computational procedures are offered for investigation of: (1) Statistical significance of message-component distribution in samples of Navy teletype traffic; (2) Sampling methods for establishing random occurrence of errors and bursts of errors; (3) Bit-error rates causing randomly spread character errors and character errors occurring in adjacent-to-each-other series of erroneous characters. The computational methods offered are designed to rely on moderate sizes of statistical samples retaining, however, accuracy of statistical inference. The simplified structure of the mathematical model is achieved through approximations rendered in this work. This affords certain insights into the mechanisms involved in error control for direct utilization by systems engineers in the field of naval communications. (Author)
