List of Errata |

Chapter | Page | Location in Text | Nature of Error | |
---|---|---|---|---|

2 | 9 | Equation (2.2) | Variable 'z' in (2.2) should have a tilde on it, not a bar. | |

4 | 52 | Example 4.2 | The example diagram lacked clarity, and the left-most expression in (4.20) was missing the force of the spring. The corrected example is here. | |

5 | 80 | Equation (5.43) | The middle term in the equation is missing time variable t.
| |

5 | 80 | Figure 5.6 | Variable 'lambda' in the left panel of the figure should be 0+4i rather than 0+i | |

5 | 91 | Equation (5.60) | There are double dots missing on the leftmost y and z. The correct equation is as follows: | |

5 | 91 | Problem 5.3 | Variable 'lambda_1' in (5.67) should be -4, not -2. | |

7 | 141 | Example 7.1 | The fixed point at (0,1000) is a Stable Star, and not a Stable Node. | |

7 | 142 | Example 7.2 | The Newton / root finding image on page 143 actually corresponds to the polynomial x^6-1=0, and not x^6+1=0. | |

7 | 152 | Example 7.6 | The description of the predator-prey model is incorrect. The example states that "However (7.18), (7.19) are, yet again, in the predator-prey class of models, consisting of an unstable fixed point surrounded by a limit cycle", however the predator-prey models consist of a centre which is surrounded by cycling behaviour. There is no limit cycle actually present. The updated example can be seen here. | |

8 | 210 | References for Chapter 8 | The title of [12] is "The Bodélé Depression ..." (link to paper) | |

9 | 241 | Problem 9.7 | The vertical axis in the figure should have been "Frequency" and not "Likelihood" |
