Errata for the 2002 Review of Particle Physics
(Last changed April 17, 2003)
:
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:

(October 24, 2002):
There is a sign problem in the result for the number of nonnu_e
active neutrinos:
phi(nu_(mu tau))= (3.45+0.650.62)x10^{6}
cm^{2} s^{1} (WRONG)
phi(nu_(mu tau))= (3.45+0.650.62)x10^{6}
cm^{2} s^{1} (RIGHT)
Notice the sign mistake!

(October 8, 2002):
The units were wrong for the decay mode psi(2S) > tau+ tau
The value should be (2.7+0.7) x 10^{3}

Similary for pages 737 and 738 (see below).

For the Xi^{0} Decay Parameters, the text for
the last two decay parameters was omitted.

(August 28, 2002):
In the paragraph in the righthanded column that begins
... Complete unification ... Go down to the line that begins
... The first three ``spins'' ...
There are about 8 lines repeated twice.

(okay on the Web and in the full Review):
Passage of Particles through Matter

(February 3, 2003):
There is a garbled sentence 3 lines down in the text below
the figure caption. It should read:
Since the plasma frequency scales
as the square root ...

The caption for Figure 2 reads:
The contours show 68%, 90%, and 97% joint probability
(WRONG)
The contours show 68%, 95%, and 99% joint probability (RIGHT)

The statistical error quoted in Equation 21 is wrong:
B(B to K lepton+ lepton)=
(0.75+0.350.31+0.09)x10^{6}
(WRONG)

The page number for the MAHAPATRA 2002 reference is wrong.
The correct reference is PRL 88, 101803.

(October 8, 2002):
The units were wrong for the decay mode Gamma_5 or tau+ tau
The value should be (2.7+0.7) x 10^{3} (page 737)

The units were wrong for the branching ratio
Gamma(tau+ tau)/Gamma_total
or Gamma_5/Gamma
The value should be (27+7) x 10^{4} (page 738)

Similary for page 51 (see above).
