This list was last changed on 5th April 2016.
1st (2013), 2nd (2014) and 3rd (2015) printing
p. 89, "The model is underidentified given data y if the likelihood,"
p(\theta|y) -> p(y|\theta)
p. 497, line 7: beta_j in the subscript should be beta^*_j
p. 508, model components 4,5,6
k_4(s,s') -> k_4(t,t')
k_5(s, s') = I_{\rm weekday}(t) -> k_5(t, t') = I_{\rm weekday}(t,t')
where $I_{\rm weekday}(t,t')$ is an indicator variable that equals to 1 if both $t$ and $t'$ are weekdays, and 0 otherwise.
k_6(s, s') = I_{\rm weekend}(t) -> k_6(t, t') = I_{\rm weekend}(t,t')
where $I_{\rm weekend}(t,t')$ is an indicator variable that equals to 1 if both $t$ and $t'$ are Saturday or Sunday, and 0 otherwise.
p. 508, model component 4
remove "(with period 365.25 to match the average length of the year)"
p. 548 The equation under the line "The stick-breaking representation..."
is missing the equation number. In the future printings the equation number
will be 23.3 and all the equation numbers after this until the end of chapter
will be incremented by one (thanks Vanda Inacio).
p. 550 1st line "From (23.2) and (23.3)...". (23.2) should refer to the currently unnumebered stick-breaking equation on page 548 (see above) (23.3) refers to the correct equation. In the future printings the equation numbers will be fixed and this will be "From (23.3) and (23.4)..." (thanks Vanda Inacio).
1st (2013) and 2nd (2014) printing
p. 22, top line
"$|J|$ is the determinant" should be "$|J|$ is the absolute value of the determinant"
p. 94, 7th line
"estimate \theta y" should be "estimate \hat{\theta}(y)"
p. 134, Ex. 2 first line
"with known model parameters" should "with unknown model parameters"
p. 151, 14th line from bottom is missing a parentheses
"Pr(T(y^{rep}>T(Y)|y)" should be "Pr(T(y^{rep})>T(Y)|y)"
p. 173, 14th line
"widely available" should be "widely applicable"
Chapter 21, p. 501, 503, 505, 506, 508, 511, 513, 514,
To follow the more generally used definition, in all squared exponential
covariance function equations, the denominator should be "2l^2"
instead of "l^2".
p. 266, 8th line
the normalized weights equation should not have the multiplier S (the
normalized weights should sum to one).
