We appologize for making the following mistakes in the published edition of the paper.
-- Page 2, left column, the paragraph before Eq. (3):
"..., one can define $n$ dynamical
indicators $\{P_j\}_{j=1}^n$ of a PWLCM $F(\cdot)$ as the probability that \textit{the least $j$ bits of $F(x)$ are all 0-bits and the $j+1$ least bit is a 1-bit."
should read
"..., one can define $n$ dynamical
indicators $\{P_j\}_{j=1}^n$ of a PWLCM $F(\cdot)$ as the probability that \textit{the least $j$ bits of $F(x)$ are all 0-bits."
-- Equation (3) should read
\begin{equation}
P_j=Prob\left[b_{n-(j-1)}=\cdots=b_n=0\right].
\end{equation}
-- The first property of PWLCM listed in Section 3.1 contains an error. The notation $||C_i||$ should be replaced by $\mu(C_i)=||C_i||/(\beta-\alpha)$. Accordingly, the whole sentence should read as follows:
"its Lyapunov exponent $\lambda=-\sum_{i=1}^m\mu(C_i)\cdot\ln\mu(C_i)$ and satisfies $0<\lambda<\ln m$, where $\mu(C_i)=||C_i||/(\beta-\alpha)$;"
-- Section 4.3.2, Page 3134, left column, the 10th line after Eq. (22): "Generally speaking, the smaller the r_1,...,r_m are, ..." should be "Generally speaking, the greater the r_1,...,r_m are, ..."
-- Section 4.5, the last paragraph, the notation $\overline{\overline{P}}(i)$ should read $\overline{\widetilde{P}}_i$. The sentence "Let $\overline{\overline{P}}(i)$ denote the mean value of the average degradation factor, $\overline{P}$, ..." should read "Let $\overline{\widetilde{P}}_i$ denote the mean value of the average degradation factor, $\tilde{P}$, ..."
