These errors in the table of 10D values of the elliptic integral of the third kind are attributable to a programming error, which resulted in the value of k~ being set

equal to 1 — 10~ instead of 1.

ERRATA

Recalculation of the coefficients in the Maclaurin series for l/r(z) to more than 25D has revealed the following corrections to be required in the 16D table in 6.1.34 on p. 256. The final decimal digits in ck corresponding to k = 3, 8, 10, 12, 16, and 17 should each be increased by a unit ; the final digits in en and c24should each be decreased by a unit, while the value c2s should be decreased by two final units. Also, the sign of c26should be changed to minus. This supplements and emends the corrections made by Isaacson and Salzer

iMTAC, v. 1,1943, p. 124, MTE 19) in the corresponding original table of Bourguet

¡Acta Math., v. 2, 1883, pp. 261-295).

On p. 162, in section 2, [fi], it is erroneously stated that 108 4- 2271, 108 + 4291, and I08 4- 4909 should be deleted from the list of primes given on pp. 97-98 of Tavole di Numeri Primi entro Limiti Diversi e Tavole Affini, by L. Poletti, Milan, 1920. In fact, these numbers are prime. There exists an additional error in Poletti's table; namely, 108 4~ 9513 is not

prime, since it is divisible by 1531.
