Page 14, three lines above Figure 2.7: The word "presure" is missing an "s" and should be
"pressure".
Page 14, Figure 2.7(b): The energy level labeled N
a
should instead be labeled N
d
.
Page 39, following Equation (3.31): The -1 in the quantity
τ
min
-1
should be a superscipt on
τ
min
,
and parentheses should be inserted, so it reads "(
τ
min
)
-1
".
Page 42, Figure 3.3 caption: In (c) a set of parentheses is missing around the t in n't; it should
read "n'(t)".
Page 43, two lines above Equation (3.45): The word "frequent" should be "frequency".
Page 43, last term on the page:
The w in the exponent should be a
ω
so the factor reads
"Re[Be
j(
ω
t+
θ
)
]".
Page 45, Equation (3.46): The expression for
θ
should be preceeded by a minus sign so it reads
"
θ
= - tan
-1
(
ωτ
e
)".
Page 46, Figure 3.5: The values on the vertical scales should be multiplied by a factor of two.
Thus the peak value of g
l
(t) in (a) should be 2G, rather than G; the peak value of n'(t) in (b) should
be 2G
τ
e
, rather than G
τ
e
; and the average value of n'(t) in (b), (c), and (d) should be G
τ
e
, rather
than G
τ
e
/2.
Page 49, following Equation (3.55a): A prime is missing on p and it should read "...pairs, n' = p'
and..."
Page 65, Equation (3.23): To be consistent this equation should be numbered 3.23'.
Page 66, Equations (4.13a) and (4.13b): The factor n
2
i
should be n
i
2
as in Equation (4.13c)..
Page 76, Equations (5.17) and (5.18):
To be consistent the factor n'/
τ
e
should be written
n'(x,t)/
τ
e
.
Page 76, Equation (5.20): The factors in the denominators of the first two factors should indicate
partial, rather than total, derivatives. Thus dt should be
∂
t, and dx
2
should be
∂
x
2
.
Page 79, first sentence: The correct relationships between the quantities A, B, C, and D are C = (A
+ B)/2 and D = (A - B)/2.
