Page 44:

Exercise 1.9(b) Should be

This is a discrete random variable with **41 ** mass
points.

Exercise 1.9(c) Should be

This is also a discrete random variable with **41 ** mass
points.

Page 51, line 20:

``x'' should be ``a''.

Page 53, line 23: (Thanks to Matt Goldberg!)

Delete ``of a square matrix''

Page 56, paragraph 4: (Thanks to Ted Thompson!)

Replace last sentence with ``The product of symmetric matrices is not,
in general, symmetric. If (but not only if) A and B are symmetric,
then AB = (BA)^T.''

Page 62, line 1:

Should say "and X is of full column rank"

Page 64, line 12b:

``A^T'' ahould be ``span(A)''.

Page 69, line 10b: (Thanks to Matt Goldberg!)

Replace ``is a diagonal matrix'' with ``is an n x m diagonal matrix''

Page 73, line 7: (Thanks to Matt Goldberg!)

The quantity on the left should not be squared.

Page 79, line 5 :

Should state \epsilon < 1.

Page 85, Exercise 2.10, in hint: (Thanks to Matt Goldberg!)

Replace ``\sum \lambda_i c_i'' with ``\sum \lambda_i c_i^2''

Page 88, line 18: (Thanks to Paul Ledbetter!)

Second row of matrix should be 0, c_2, c_3, 0

third row should be 0, 0, 1, 0

Page 101, lines 9 and 11: (Thanks to Xing Yukun!)

``||x||''
should be
``\sqrt{x_p^2 + x_q^2}''

Page 108, line 7: (Again, thanks to Matt Goldberg!)

Add ``\kappa (A)'' on right side of equation.

Page 127, lines 15 and 16: (Thanks to Kang Jeong Su!)

In line 15, both the norm and the summation on the right side should
be of objects at the k^{th} stage.

In line 16, the summation should be over all i, and the (p,q) terms
should be squared and multiplied by 2. In LaTeX, it is

\|A^{(k-1)} \|_{\rm F}^2 -
\sum_{i} (a_{ii}^{(k-1)} )^2 -
2 (a_{pq}^{(k-1)} )^2 +
2 (a_{pq}^{(k)} )^2.

Page 156, line 9:

The second diagonal element should be ``(n-3)/2''.

Page 168, line 12: (Thanks to Jaafar AlMutawa!)

``Beta_W'' should be ``Beta_V''.

Page 186:

The definitions of ceiling and floor are reversed.
