Error in Section 10.1.3

On page 346, 6th line of section 10.1.3 – “consumer desires a maximum probability” should be “consumer desires a minimum probability” 7th line (right below) – “producer desires a maximum probability” should be “producer desires a minimum probability”

Example 6.3, p. 174

At the bottom of the page, the equation should have phi/eta as the first term instead of just phi.

Chapter 6, p. 182

Formula on p. 182, 8 lines from the top should not have 1 – . This may also impact Example 6.5.

Example 3.6

Three lines from the end of the example, 1.387 < 7.81

Chapter 10 Formula, p. 350

The left hand side of the first equation on p. 350 should start as P[pi >= pi_0].

Formula 10.9

On p. 349 in Formula 10.9, pi_0 in the probability statement should be pi_1.

Example 2.4

On p. 38, the marginal probability of observing 3 successes in 11 launches under M2 is incorrect. You can see the correct computation here, with result 0.08528986. This result should be carried through subsequent computations.

Equation 3.6

The brackets in the numerator are incorrect. Using LaTeX notation, change to [m_k(\tilde{theta}) – np_k]^2.

Example 5.3

The fault tree pictured is incorrect. The following is the correct fault tree.

Exercise 3.6

Part (b), Replace: “Report how changes in the values assumed for K and alpha” with “Report how changes in the values assumed for lambda and alpha”
