Page 3, equation 1.1: add "/h" to the end of the equation
Page 4, line 5b: "and another at year 2", should be at year 3
Page 10, table 2.2: The column heading for the right-most column should
be "std" rather than "var", the column contains the standard error.
Page 27, line -4: It should read d(s), not d(ns)
Page 33 line -5: The right-hand square bracket should be moved to
after dLambda(s)
Page 35, line 14b: remove an extraneous "'5" at the end of the line
Page 40, Eqn (3.3): the first r_i(t) should be log(r_i(t)) or X_i(t) \beta
Page 40, Eqn (3.7): In the numerator it should read r_i(s), not r_i(t)
Page 52, Table 3.1: The column headings should each be one place to the right.
Page 58, last two lines of the example: The subscripts should be
var[5,5] and coef[5], respectively.
Page 74, line 6b: The line begins "model start stop * status"; it is
missing a pair of parenthesis and should read "model (start stop) * status".
Page 138, line 5: extraneous sentence fragment "different scales using SAS".
Page 120, line -2: missing parenthesis on l(\beta, \omega)
Page 134, equation 6.6: "d" should be in the denominator, not the numerator.
Two lines below it should be dI^{jj} not I^{jj}/d, in agreement with the
equation change.
Page 156, line 8: Figure 7.1 should be Figure 7.3
Page 176, lines 18-20: The hemoglobin value for subject 1 is 11.5, not 1.5.
Page 186, line 16: "independent increments"
pp.220-221: The first factor() command uses "PreStudy" as a label, the second
"Pre-Study", and the output shows "pstEntry". It should be PreStudy, PreStudy
and pstPreStudy.
Page 254, equation 9.8: PPL = l + ...., rather than minus.
Page 254, line 16: A factor of 1/\theta is missing in the penalty term.
Page 267, last equation: The exponent should be 1/r_{(k)}, not -r_{(k)}
Page 315: The age of the first subject is 21464 days, not 1464.
Page 332, line 2: The very first number in the table should be 1/9, not 1/6.
All of the above are repaired in the second printing of late 2001. Several
other minor grammatical mistakes, e.g. spelling, have also been corrected.
