symbol error and bit error

hi
can you determine how symbol and bir error rates are related.and what this relation depends on.

hi

P_M : symbol error prob.
P_b : bit error prob.
k : number of bit per each symbol

P_M= [2^(k-1)/(2^k-1)]*P_b

you must read this book
" digital communication" by proakis(chapter five)

[size=18]if you are using grey code in coding therefore
ser= symbol error rate
ber= bit error rate
k=number of bits per sybol = log (base 2) M
where M is the M ary you are using
therefore ber=ser/k[/size]

If gray coding is assumed, the bit error rate is 1/log2(M) of symbol rate where M is the modulation order (for example, M=4 for 4PSK).

However, gray coding is not always applicable to all modulation constellation. In such case, some approxiamate can be found in Proakis's book.
