On weights of 2-repeated bursts

Barkha Rohtagi, Bhu Dev Sharma


It is generally seen that the behavior of the bursts depend upon the nature of the channel. In a very busy communication channel bursts repeat themselves. In this communication we are exploring the idea of weight consideration of 2-repeated bursts of length b(fixed). Some results on weights of 2-repeated bursts of length b(fixed) are derived and some combinatorial results with weight constraint for 2-repeated bursts of length b(fixed) are also given.
