Unformatted text preview: Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning Errata and Additional Comments Markus Svensen and Christopher M. Bishop September 9, 2009 2 Preface This document lists corrections and clarifications for the first printing 1 of Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning by Christopher M. Bishop, published by Springer in 2006. It is intended to be complete, in that it includes also trivial typographical errors and provides clarifications that some readers may find helpful. However, it is not assumed to include all mistakes that exist in the book and the author welcomes reports of any remaining potential mistakes, along with any other feedback on the book, which should be sent to prml-fb@microsoft.com Corrections and clarifications are given in the order they should appear in the book. Each entry starts with a page number in the margin, followed (in the main body of the page) by the location of the mistake or ambiguity and the required am- mendment. In specifying the location, the following conventions are used: Paragraphs are numbered from 1 on each page. The first paragraph is usually the one continuing from the previous page, but if the first line on a page starts a new paragraph, this will be the first paragraph. In the book, the first line of each paragraph is indented, with the exception of paragraphs that follow immediately after a chapter or a section (but not a sub-section) heading, which are not indented. Line and paragraph numbers preceded by a minus () sign are counted from the bottom of the paragraph or page. Paragraph 1 referes to the last paragraph started, but not necessarily completed on a page. The following abbreviations are used in this document: PRML (Pattern Recog- nition and Machine Learning), l.h.s. (left hand side) and r.h.s. (right hand side). 1 To identify which printing your copy of the book is from, consult the page with bibliographic information (immediately preceding the dedication page); if the one but last line reads 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 you have a copy from the first printing, if it reads 9 8 7 6 5 (corrected printing 2007) you have a copy from the second printing. 3 4 PREFACE Acknowledgements We would like to thank all of the readers who have reported mistakes in PRML. In particular, we are grateful to the Japanese translation team, Dr Xiaobo Jin of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and also to Makoto Otsuka of Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, Japan, and his colleagues in Neural Computation Unit, for particularly thorough feedback. Additional Notes Although the majority of the changes are relatively straightforward, such as typo- graphical mistakes, accidental changes of sign or missing terms in equations and incorrect references, a few call for a bit more explanation. Citations below refer to the References section of PRML....
