Page 57. Diakonis spelt here with a `k'
rather than the correct `c'. Scribal error. |

Page 25 and throughout. Illiad should be
Iliad. Scribal
error. |

(Sussex) |
Page 307. There is a
notation clash. In the second paragraph, we should define d
= b - a and e = c - a
(rather than c and d, since c
has already been used) so that the equation of the
plane then assumes the form r = a
+
$\lambda $d
+
$\mu $e. |

Exercises 4.3,
Question 5. Correct as far as it goes, but needs a
little helping hand. For the solutions to be real we should assume in addition that a^2 -b > 0 and a > 0. If the square roots that result are to be square roots of rational numbers then a^2 - b should also be a perfect square.$a$ |

There is a typo in the
solution to Question 4(b) of Exercises 4.4. |

Page 299. First line
of the proof of Theorem 9.3.2 should just read 'The
area of the parallelogram is equal to' (delete `the
absolute value of'). Lengths are, of course, non-negative! |

Page 32. The symbol
for the empty set is actually Norwegian rather than
Danish and its introduction is attributed to the
mathematician Andre Weil (brother of Simone Weil). |

Page 182. Proof of
Lemma 7.2.3. In the displayed formula, on the RHS of
the equals sign the prime should be on the first r(x)
not the second. |
