Known Typographical and Other Errors in All Editions
(as of September 7, 2005)
Page/line/equation numbering refers to the 2nd edition {1st edition in curly braces if the material appeared in the 1st edition}. If you find errors other than those listed below, do please send them to the author (i.e., me)

Error |
68 {61} |
The following reference is missing: Luo, F., McBane, G. C., Kim, G., Giese, C. F., and Gentry, W. R. 1993. J. Chem. Phys., 98, 3564. |
83 {77} |
In Eqs. (3.35) to (3.37) the dipole moment should be qr, not q/r |
168 {156} |
The caption to Figure 6.1 should begin: "Behavior of e^{-x}..." (i.e., not e^{x}) |
217 {205} |
Eq. (7.24). The eigenvalue "a" on the r.h.s. should have a subscript zero to indicate the ground state. |
229 {215} |
Lines 3 to 6 {17 to 20}. Two sentences should be changed to read: Thus, if we apply this formula to going from an (s,p,d) saturated basis set to an (s,p,d,f) basis set, our error drops by 64%, i.e., we recover a little less than two-thirds of the missing correlation energy. Going from (s,p,d,f) to (s,p,d,f,g), the improvement drops to 53%, or, compared to the (s,p,d) starting point, about five-sixths of the original error. |
298 |
In the reference in Table 8.7 for the PW91 correlation functional, the editor's name is "Eschrig" not "Eschig". |
311 |
Eq. (9.10). The "min" function on the r.h.s. should be "max". |
314 {282} |
Eq. (9.17) {Eq. (9.11)}. The last line should sum over the orthogonalized functions, chi-subscript-s, not chi-subscript-r. The equation is also somewhat more clear if the order of the "c" and "S^{1/2}" terms in the sum are reversed. |
330 {295} |
Line 9. Reference should be made to Section 8.5.5 (not 8.5.6). |
359 {323} |
Eq. (10.9). Both the last term on the second line of the equation and the first term on the fifth line of the equation should be subscripted "rot" not "elec". |
509 {461} |
In the line below Eq. (14.28), the words "expectation value" should be replaced by "overlap integral". |
525 {477} |
Eq. (15.17). The r.h.s. should have "-" instead of "+" before the term k_{B}TlnQ. |
525 {477} |
Eq. (15.18). The r.h.s. of the first line of the equation should have "+" instead of "-" before each of the two PV terms in the argument of the exponential function. |
