These files show how to match expected theoretical results by Monte Carlo simulations.

PSK_SER_Curves(SNRs)
function varargout = PSK_SER_Curves(SNRs)
%PSK_SER_Curves Symbol Error Rate plots for PSK signals over AWGN Channel.
%   h = PSK_SER_Curves plots the symbol error rate (SER) curves verus
%   SNR per bit (Eb/No) for BPSK, QPSK, 8-, 16-, and 32-PSK signal
%   constellations over AWGN channels.
