As errors are found, they will be posted in an errata sheet (last modified 5/7/12) ordered by the date on which the error was discovered. If correcting the error would not significantly affect the page numbering, it will be corrected in both posted versions, and a marginal note, including the date of posting to the errata sheet, will indicate that the correction has been made. If the correction would significantly affect the page numbering, it will not be corrected in the posted versions, but a marginal note will refer the reader to the correction in the errata sheet.
