Errata for the 2000 Review of Particle Physics
(Last changed August 29, 2001)
:
During the time between editions of the Review of Particle
Physics and the Particle Physics Booklet,
we often find
a number of errata. We correct most errata on our WWW pages.
If you should find errata that are not known to us,
please send mail to
pdg@lbl.gov.
We present the following errata along
with the corrected PostScript and PDF files:

(August 15, 2000):
The Value given for the Schwarzschild radius of the Earth was
off by a factor of 2. The correct value is:

(November 30, 2000):
Some collider parameters for the DAPHNE Collider were incorrect.

Luminosity

Time between collisions (Changed on December 4, 2000)

Luminosity lifetime (hr)

Filling time (min)

Bunches per ring per species

Average beam current per species (mA)

Passage of particles through matter

PDF

(April 17, 2001):
In Section 23.4.1 Radiation length:
the expression for the efolding distance is wrong (fifth/sixth lines):

It should read:
and the efolding distance for pair production by a highenergy
photon is
9/7 X_{0}.
(it had read 7/9 rather than the correct 9/7)

(Page 197 of the Booklet):
Passage of particles through matter

PDF

(December 15, 2000):
In the paragraph that contains Eq. 23.26, the expression for photon
energy is wrong. The sentence should read:

In amorphous media, bremsstrahlung is suppressed if the photon energy
k is less than <E^{2}/E_{LPM}[38] ...
(it had read > rather than <)

PDF

(September 6, 2000):
The heading for the nu_mu section should say:

Pending better understanding it is assumed that nu_mu
couples predominantly with
nu_2
(rather than nu_1).

PDF

(September 6, 2000):
The heading for the nu_tau section should say:

Pending better understanding it is assumed that nu_tau
couples predominantly with
nu_3
(rather than nu_1).

PDF

(September 6, 2000):
TwoFlavor Oscillation Parameters and Limits figure:

Limits for NOMAD and CHORUS were inadvertently omitted.
These figures appear correctly in the Booklet and web versions.

PDF

(November 2, 2000):
Quark Mass Parameter Figure

The figures for the c mass and the b mass should have units of GeV,
not MeV as published.

PDF

(November 14, 2000):
bQuark Mass: The value for BRANDENBURG 99 was in error:

The correct value is
3.8+0.772.0
(not 4.48+1.12.7 as published).

f_{J}(2220)

(March 8, 2001):
The value for Gamma(pi pi) x Gamma(gamma gamma)/Gamma_{total} was in error:

The correct value is
<2.5 eV
(not <3.8 eV as published).

2001 PS
2001 PDF
(NOT Corrected on 2000 Web version)

(August 29, 2001):
Because the entry for ALAM 1994 was mistakenly left out of the
average for Gamma17, the calculated average was wrong.

Corrected in 2001 edition:
Page 6, for the Gamma17 Decay Mode:
Wrong: (6.8+3.4)x10^{3} Right: (7.3+1.5)x10^{3}

Corrected in 2001 edition:
Page 16, similarly for the Branching Ratio:
Wrong: 0.0068+0.0034 Right: 0.0073+0.0015

(November 27, 2000):
ABAEV 96 entry for the N(1535)

Added measurements of Gamma(N pi)/Gamma_{total} and
(Gamma_{ i }/Gamma_{ j})^{1/2}/Gamma_{total}
for N pi to N(1535) to N eta.

(November 27, 2000):
ABAEV 96 entry for the Lambda(1670)

Corrected measurement of
(Gamma_{ i }/Gamma_{ j })^{1/2}/Gamma_{total}
for N Kbar to Lambda(1670) to Lambda eta and corrected comment in all
entries for this paper.
