(RL) Page 195, bottom line: change "an approximate" to "a conservative" Page 202 Exercise 8.21: change "Section 8.5.1" to "Section 8.5.2" (KR) Page 215, line 1: Change .07316 to .07317 in both expressions. (JP) Page 226 and 227: change "is the bootstrap sample" to "are the bootstrap sample estimates" (two occurrences) (RL) Page 242, line 12: V_{\exp(\ghat)} = g^2 V_{\ghat} should read V_{\exp(\ghat)} = \exp(2g) V_{\ghat} (HK) Page 245, equation (10.9): Remove the \sigma^{2} from the denominators in all three terms inside the square brackets. (YH) Page 251 line -6: "Escobar and Meeker (1997)" should be "Escobar and Meeker (1998d)" (HK) Page 370, line -15: omit the word "independent." Page 378: In order to agree with Figure 15.8, the indexes i and j should be switched on the products of the first displayed equation: F_T(t)=1-\prod_{j=1}^{k}\right(1-\prod_{i=1}^{r}F_{ij}\left). (JP) Page 379, equation (15.6): the index j in the summations should run from j=s-k+1 to j=s. (JP) Page 379, last line (caption of Figure 15.10): Change "Figure 15.10. A k-out-of-s system structure" to "Figure 15.10. A 2-out-of-3 system structure'' Page 380, line 3: the index j in the summations should run from j=s-k+1 to j=s. (JP) Page 450, Table 17.4: The MLE of \beta_{1} for Model 1 should read -.03 instead of -.02. Also, \beta_{3} for Model 2 should be -.000082 instead of .000082. (JP) Page 504 Example 19.10, line -5: there is an unnecessary ) after 18.4.2 (KR) Page 509, Table 19.4: at 250 Degrees C, 7.87 should be 0.87 (KR) Page 511, line -5: "similiar to Figure 19.12" should be "similiar to Figure 19.13". (ET) Page 513, Figure 19.16: 45 cen should be 49 cen (HK) Page 514, line 1: Change Figure 19.6 to Figure 19.16.. (QJ) Page 524, line 4: "when the actual relationship if really..." should be "when the actual relationship is really..." (ET) Page 552 and 553: Change x_{1L} to x_{1U} and x_{2L} to x_{2U} in equations (20.3), (20.5), (20.6), (20.7), and (20.8). (CJ) Page 553, third line above Table 20.5: change \xi_{1A}=0 to \xi_{2A}=0. (CJ) Page 574, line -4: what we really did was "path on the linear-linear scale (Figure 21.11)" (but this is not the best model to fit).
