- 11: There
is an n
missing in the
numerator of the last formula[Thanks to Ed Green!]
- 45: Reverent should be
Reverend
[Thanks to Jan Kejah]
- 130: In
Example 3.5.4, the minus sign is missing [or, alternatively, the absolute value around] in front of the second derivative
[Thanks to Jan Kejah]
- 144: In
Example 3.5.7, (i) the reference to Example 3.5.1 should be to Example
3.5.4, (ii) the formula provides π_{2}^{2}, not π_{2}, as equal to Fisher information, and (iii) the negative binomial
distribution on n, Neg(x,θ), is not defined here as in A.13 as the number of
failures but as the number of attempts (which means a difference of x
between both definitions, hence E[n-x|x]=x (1-θ) / θ )
[Thanks to Jan Kejah]
- 144: In
Problem 3.1,
the power in (1-θ)
should be
β-1
not β
[Thanks to Jan Kejah]
- 194: There
is a minus sign
missing after the m
[Thanks to
Arnaud Doucet!]
- 175:
The reference to Note
2.5.4
should be to Note 2.8.2
- 208:
In Problem 4.34 (b),
the right
prior to get the negative binomial posterior is 1/N not the uniform
[Thanks to
Feng Liang!]
- 229: At the top of the page (and the bottom of the previous page), the
broken fraction is misleading : the top term in the second line, that
is the ratio of gamma functions, should have a G power since it
appears in each of
the G
terms in the product
- 231:
In Example 5.2.7,
the second
line of the formula should have (n+1)!in
the denominator, not (n-1)! This
modifies the numerical values below, including Table 5.2.1 [Thanks
to Fabrice
Pautot!]
- 305: The
acceptance
probability in Example
6.3.2
is
all wrong: alphas and etas
should have powers of n
and there are
additional exponential terms [Thanks to M.R.L.N. Panchanana!]
- 485:
In Example 10.5.1,
the first
truncated James-Stein estimator is missing an equation number, which is
refered to as (10.5.1) the line below [Thanks to Estelle
Dauchy!]
- 538:
Both Brockwell and Davis are missing their initials, P. and R.,
respectively [Thanks to Jan Kejah]
- 546:
The exact reference is Sequential
Monte Carlo in Practice [Thanks
to Arnaud Doucet!]
- 553:
Bernouilli should be Bernoulli in Gill & Levit's
reference [Thanks to Jan Kejah]
