pg 667, line 3 of first full paragraph. Equation 22.8 should be Equation 22.9
12 December 2003
pg 933 The pages for Risch, N. 1990a Am J Hum Genet 46
should be pp. 222-228 instead of 229-241
25 August 2003
pg 422. Equation 14.22 for the chi-square is incorrect. Simply
use the standard expression for a 2 x 2.
pg. 843. The chi-square goodness-of-fit statistics in Table A3.1
are, strictly speaking, correct, but totally impractical, as one
uses the sum of squared residuals to estimate
the residual variance, sigma^2_e.
18 March 2003
pg 32, 2 ln3 above Eq 2.16 (typo) change sigma to sigma^2.
3 Feb 2003
page 448: Pr(chi(1)>4.61)=0.032 (not 0.04 as in the
book), so that the 1 LOD drop support is approximately a 97%
CI. [ Mangin et al. (1994) may have pointed this out first ]
A 2 LOD interval is then a 99.8% CI, since Pr(chi(1)>9.21) = 0.002.

pg 373, fifth line from bottom: Change "German and German
1984" to "Geman and Geman 1984"

noncentrality parameter should be (mu_i - mubar)^2 instead of
mu_i^2.
pg. 881, one line above Equation A5.19. The mean of ybar_{i.}
should be mu + tau_i, not tau_i (s incorrected given).
2 November 2001
pg 865 2nd line after Eq. A4.22c: interations should be iterations
21 October 2001
pg. 445 Luo and Wolliams 1993 should be Luo and Woolliams 1993.

ref) and on page 960 (author index).

top in column two) is from Journal of Heredity and not from Heredity.

13 December 2000
pg. 376, 523, 525, 901: Curtis and Stam should read Curtis and Sham
pg. 958: Under Stam, P., the listings for 376, 525, and 525 should be
listed under Sham, P. C.
17 October 2000
pg 764 (Example 8), 4th line (ignoring Equations): A_{55}
equals 1.125, not 1.25 as listed.
pg 764 (Example 8), For the **A** matrix at the end of the example,
the elements A_{25} and A_{52} should be 1/4,
not 1/2 as listed.
29 August 2000
pgs. 578-579, Example 3. Several math errors in computing the
standard errors. The correct values (using Equation 18.38a) are
Var( t_{PHS} ) = 0.00125 (instead of 0.0098)
SE( t_{PHS} ) = 0.035 (instead of 0.099)
Var( t_{FS} ) = 0.00368 (instead of 0.0127)

SE( t_{FS} ) = 0.042 (instead of 0.037)
16 May 2000
pg. 96. Equation 8.25c. the covariance matrix should be
A V A^T instead of the the (incorrectly) listed value of A^T V A.

Page 70, Figure 4.8. the labels on the Y-axis for the case k=0 should go
from 0 to 0.5 in 0.1 increments
13 March 2000
Page 73: Example 4 For the case of pB=0.5, the dominance
genetic variance component should be 0.0025 (instead of 0.0012) and the
total genetic variance thus becomes 0.1765 (instead of 0.1752).
Page 74 : last line of the explanation for example 4. Should read
"presented in Chapter 14" (Not Chapter 13 as stated)
6 March 2000
pg. 493: Our verbal definition of PIC is incorrect. It should be the
probability that the transmission from a (specific) parent can be
determined unambiguously. A homozygous child from two
identical) heterozygous parents clearly has the paternal/maternal
origin of both is alleles unambiguously determined (and hence
contributing to PIC).
pg. 902, 1st column, ref 3: The correction citation for Demenais et al.
1988 is Annuals of Human Genetics, not Am J. Hum Genet. as listed.
27 February 2000

two, y_c1 should be less than or equal to y, not greater than or equal to
y as is written.

simply be Zo_i.

it reduces to" (i.e, for randon mating)
24 Sept 1999
pg. 576. Equation 18.36 is in error. The correct version should read
F = ( c_dMS_d - c_sMS_s)/MS_e where
c_d =( k_2 + k_3)/( k_2 + k_3-k_1) and
c_s = k_1 /( k_2 + k_3-k_1)
30 April 1999
pg. 511, Equation 16.30: Strictly speaking, this covariance is conditional
on R_ij and hence should read Cov(z_i,z_j | R_ij)
20 April 1999
pg 84, table in Example 1.: the a and k values
for P_MM and B_TT were switched, so that
the values for P_MM should be a = 21.6, k = 0.06 and for P_TT

14 Jan 1999
pg. 796, Example 4. (i) The two sigma's [the variance components
sigma^2_A(k) and sigma^2_E(k)] should have their positions swapped
in the vector theta, so that the first (top) element should be
sigma^2_E(k) and the second (bottom) element becomes
sigma^2_A(k).
(ii) The lower left element in the Hessian matrix H should be
tr(PPA) - 2yPPAPy, not tr(PAP) - 2yPAPPy as listed

Pr(Q_j | M_1) = Pr(Q_i | M_2) = c (Q_j and Q_i were
mistakenly reversed)
pg. 623. Vertical caption on Figure 20.4 should read "sigma_{P_2,r}(i)"
rather than "sigma_{P_2}r(i)". Likewise, "sigma^2_{r(i)}"
should instead read "sigma^2_r(i)"

9 July 1998
pg 814-5. Equation A1.10b n should be (n-1). This results in three other errors.
(1) In the second (unnumbered) equation on pg 815, n --> (n-1)
(2) In the next line, n [Var(x)]^2/(n+2) --> (n-1) [Var(x)]^2/(n+1)
(3) In Equation A1.10c, n+2 --> n+1
(Peter Visscher, Edinburgh, 9 July 1998)
15 June 1998
There is a numbering error in that there is no Table 15.2, so that the table
numbering skips from Table 15.1 (page 440) to Table 15.3 (page 479).
pg 818, 1st line of Eq. A1.19b. The minus sign on the (mu_n/mu_v^2) term

9 April 1998
pg. 561, Equation 18.19. Correction and clarification. Equation 18.19 should read

of MS [ \sigma^2(MS) ] is approximately given by a function of square of the
observed MS.
8 April 1998
pg. 887, 3 lines below Eq A5.33a. "sigma_z =" should read "sigma^2_z"
1 April 1998

25.1c"
17 March 1998
