P.7, 69, 145, 196, 239, 262, 341, 440, 480, 483, replace "parameter" by "variable".
P.29, replace "open interval" by "closed interval".
P.74, replace equation for Fisher's skewness by skewness = {\frac{\sum\limits_{i = 1}^N{{{({x_i} - \bar x)}^3}/N}}{{{s^3}}}}
P.75, replace equation for Fisher's kurtosis by kurtosis = {\frac{\sum\limits_{i = 1}^N{{{({x_i} - \bar x)}^4}/N}}{{{s^4}}}}
P.106, Par.1 and 2, sa, sb, na, nb, phia, and phib should be subscript a and b.
P.124, Par.4 An should be subscript n.
P.137, Par.2, replace sr by s.
P.140, replace /delta by /partial on this page.
P.146, Figure 4.1, y-intercept on the left and in the equation
must be the same, 21.2 according to the figure caption.
P.160, last Par., change to "The p-value of 0.1481 indicates that we cannot reject the null hypothesis that the residuals follow a Gaussian distribution."
P.184, replace second equation by {X_{xx}}(f) = \sum\limits_{k = 0}^M {corr_{xx}(k)w(k)\;{e^{i2\pi fk/{f_s}}}}
P.184, 187, 200, replace "Fast Fourier Transformation" by "Fast Fourier Transform".
P.206, Par.2, in "z is (1-exp(-z))M." the "M" should be superscript.
P.208-209, replace "significance" by "confidence". Replace variable "signif" by "confid".
P.329, 333f, 503, significance level of 95% should be 5%.
P.217, last Par., replace "mean" by "median".
P.270, Par.4, bi should be subscript i.
P.308, [LON,LAT] = meshgrid(35:1/1200:37,-1:1/1200:0);
should be [LON,LAT] = meshgrid(35:1/1200:37,0:1/1200:1);
P.334, replace equation for the standard error by { s }_{ e }=\frac { 0.26136 }{ \sqrt { { n }^{ 2 }/A } } to correct the value of the numerator "0.27136" by "0.26136". The MATLAB code on P.335, however, is correct as it correctly uses "0.26136".
P.341, Par.4, zr,c should be subscript r,c; zr+y,c+x should be subscript r+y,c+x
P.348, replace exponent 2 by k in the transformation formula
P.349, Fig. 7.18, remove x- and y-coordinate axes, remove angle alpha, and add vector arrows to h.
P.351, replace equation for variogram estimator by \[{\gamma _E}(h) = \frac{1}{{2*N(h)}} \cdot \sum\limits_{i = 1}^{N(h)} {{{({z_{x_{i}}} - {z_{x_{i + h}}})}^2}} \]
P.361, Fig. 7.23b, colorbar is scaled the wrong way round.
P.411, Figure 8.8, the colors of the graphic should be, from top to bottom: red, green, blue.
P.447, replace first line of MATLAB code to compute newdata by newdata = V' * data'; also in recipes_9.m.
P.470, replace equation for X1 by { X_{ 1 } }=({ x_{ 11 } },\; { x_{ 12 } },\; ... ,\; { x_{ 1p } }), and for X2 by { X_{ 2 } }=({ x_{ 21 } },\; { x_{ 22 } },\; ...,\; { x_{ 2p } })
P.471, replace "cophenet" by "cophenetic"
P.499-501, replace degrees by radians on the x-axis of Figure 10.5. Replace the following MATLAB code in the book and the electronic supplementary material: cos(theta_radians-mu_radians)) by cos(theta_radians(1,:)-mu_radians)); theta(i,:)=theta(1,:) by theta_radians(i,:) = theta_radians(1,:); plot(theta(i,:),mises(i,:)) by plot(theta_radians(i,:),mises(i,:)); axis([-180 180 0 max(mises(i,:))]) by axis([-pi pi 0 max(mises(i,:))])
