## Typos in Chapters 1, 4 & 8

**T**homas Clerc from Fribourg pointed out an embarassing typo in Chapter 8 of “** Introducing Monte Carlo Methods with R**”, namely that I defined on page 247 the complex number as the squared root of

*1*and not of

*-1*! Not that this impacts much on the remainder of the book but still an embarassment!!!

**A**n inconsistent notation was uncovered by Bastien Boussau from Berkeley this time for the book ** The Bayesian Choice.** In

**Example 1.1.3**, on page 3, I consider an hypergeometric distribution, while in Appendix A, I denote hypergeometric distributions as , inverting the role of the population size and of the sample size. Sorry about that, inconsistencies in notations are alas occuring in my books… In case I have not mentioned it so far, Example 4.3.3 further involves a typo (detected by Cristiano Passerini from Pontecchio Marconi) again with the hypergeometric distribution ! The ratio should be

[…] R into a central place. I feel I have much more to learn than to teach about R (as can be seen from earlier comments on my R programs in Introducing Monte Carlo Methods with R). As I was tagging some of my older […]

I like your alternative definition of i. It makes complex analysis so much easier.
