Page 88: The exercise does produce an approximate Gaussian distribution, but the properties are all wrong! The formula should use the standard deviation (not the variance). For a better approximation: generate 12 random numbers in the range [0...1) and add the median to the value: (std dev) * (r1 + r2 + r3 + r4 + r5 + r6 + r7 + r8 + r9 + r10 + r11 + r12 - 6) Page 272: There should be no semi-colon after the maximal implementation. Page 297: The remove_current function is a member function, so it needs Bag<Item>:: in front of the function name. Page 342, Answer 12: Reference should be Figure 7.10 on page 334. Page 369: The second line of the figure says "Stack", but this is a Queue! Page 384: Solution to #18 should have queues[priority].insert(entry); Page 394: At the bottom of the page, the activation record is the THIRD call to super_write_vertical (not the second). Pages 450, 451, 486: leaf_ptr does not need to be a reference parameter. Page 543: The formula in the box needs an extra +1: H(n) = |_ log2 n_| + 1 Page 594: The formulas at the top of the page should have FOUR n/4 arrays and EIGHT n/8 arrays. Page 616: Answer 9 is missing a bracket: (k>0 && data[k] < data[parent(k)]). Page 617: The four function calls at the bottom of Project 5 need two more parameters; for example: heapify_subtree(data, 4, 10); Page 649: The right figure title is "Pond Simulation Dialogue". Page 650, Problem 8: The new rate is 2 ounces per week (not per weed!). Page 697-698: The call to rec_dfs in the middle of 697 needs parameters: rec_dfs(f, g, neighbors.current(), marked); Also, both pages must change NeighborIterator to NeighborIterator<Item>. Page 705, halfway down: distance should be distance. Page 727: The three calls to setf should have a comma after the first argument (not a semi-colon).
