Page xii, next to last paragraph | "previously" mis-spelled | Bob Klauber |

Page 7, Caption for Figure 1.5 | Units on x-axis are wrong. The two tick marks should be 1Mpc and 2Mpc. I have no idea why the version of the plot I used has the units messed up. | Chung-Pei Ma |

Page 11, next to last line | QSO stands for Quasi Stellar Object, distant point-like images first discovered in the 1960's. They are now understand to be at very great distances from us [the furthest quasar has a redshift greater than 6] | Bob Klauber |

Page 15, 4th line from bottom | Word "do" is missing: "... a map and quite another to do quantitative tests ..." | Sergio Palomares-Ruiz |

Page 22 , Exercise 2b | The integral can be done analytically
[it is given in Kolb and Turner, Eq. 3.32; I missed it!]. The answer is: | Suharyo Sumowidagdo |

Page 35, next to last paragraph, last line | should read "in a flat universe, both with and without a cosmological constant." | Bob Klauber |

Page 40, Eq. 2.65 | missing T on right hand side | Suharyo Sumowidagdo, Bob Klauber |

Page 42 Third line | The baryon density in groups is 0.02, not 0.2. | Jeremy Bernstein |

Page 46 , Eq 2.79 | There should be a factor of (2\pi)^3 in the denominator. | |

Page 47, 6th line | "... only a third of the critical density." | Sergio Palomares-Ruiz |

Page 53 , Eq 2.91 in Exercise 2.2 | The g_{11} component should be 1, not r. | Suharyo Sumowidagdo, Mark Alan Peot, Alex Conley |

Page 54, Exercise 3c | The mass m does not appear in the equation | Eunhwa Jeong |

Page 55 , Eq 2.97 | The last occurrence of the metric should be g_{jk,l}, not g_{jk,0}. | Donghui Jeong |

Page 56, Eq 2.101 | In the denominator P_0 should be P^0 (superscripted instead of subscripted). It matters if you want to show that there are no factors of \Phi,\Psi in the stress energy tensor. | Eduardo Rozo |

Page 59, above Eq. 3.1 | "Schematically" mis-spelled | Bob Klauber |

Page 64, first line of text | should be above 0.1 Mev, not 0.01. | me |

Page 65 , Eq 3.18 | Exponentials in the integrands in both numerator and denominator should have p^2, not p | Suharyo Sumowidagdo |

Page 66 , line above Eq 3.22 | nequ_l should be n^(0)_l | Bob Klauber |

Page 69 Eq 3.34 and the figure | Y_p was never defined. It's what I called X_4 on top of the page. | Sergio Palomares-Ruiz |

Page 73 3 lines above 3.47 | "ionized" spelled wrong | Sergio Palomares-Ruiz |

Page 74 , 2 lines below Eq 3.51 |
Very high temperature corresponds to x << 1, not -- as I wrote -- x >> 1. | Donghui Jeong, Alex Conley |

Page 74 , 2 lines below the above correction |
For high x, the abundance becomes exponentially suppressed, not low x as currently written. | Donghui Jeong |

Pages 74-5 , Eq 3.52, 3.54 | There should be a minus sign on the right in both eqns. This follows from 3.50 and the fact that dx/dt=+Hx | Suharyo Sumowidagdo |

Page 77 footnote 6 | "be" is missing: "to be evaluated" | Sergio Palomares-Ruiz |

Page 77 Eq. (3.60) |
Argument of the exponent should be -37 not -39! Note that the annihlation cross section -- of order 1/10 of a picobarn -- is quite a bit bigger than the elastic cross section off nuclei, shown in Fig. (3.6). This occurs naturally in most WIMP model | Daniel Vangheluwe |

Page 79 , 3rd line from bottom | naturally | Bob Klauber |

Page 81 Exercise 3b | the *reciprocal* of tau is equal to the expression with the phase integral | Roger O'Brient |

Page 83 , Eq. 3.68 | The units are wrong because I left out a factor of n_H [=(1-x_e)n_b under our assumptions] in the denominator. Needless to say, the Peebles paper I was [mis]quoting from got it right. | Jim Fry and Sanghamitra Deb |

Page 91,Eq 4.28 | I didn't explain why (1-2\Psi) was set to one in the first term on the right [this is explained after the next equation]. This is of course the linear approximation. Also, there [in my edition] are two dots right after this equation. Weird. | Sergio Palomares-Ruiz |

Page 96, 4th line of last paragraph | I neglected to explain why q/m \sim v_b. for some reason, this explanation appears later, on page 106. | Sergio Palomares-Ruiz |

Page 98, Eq 4.51 second line | All the f's should have superscripts (0) | Sergio Palomares-Ruiz |

Page 101, footnote 4 | "Euclidean" spelled wrong | Sergio Palomares-Ruiz |

"But this is obviously equal to the integral over f_e(q) f_p(Q)";
should be no primes on the momenta. I shouldn't have been so cocky about how
obvious everything is.
| Donghui Jeong |

Page 109, below Eq (4.96) |
Parenthetical comment should be "first term vanishes and third gives
..." | Daniel Grin |

Page 110, 6th line | v_b should be a vector | Bob Klauber |

Page 114, Eq. (4.112) | Two mistakes: first, all signs on the RHS should be positive; second, last term on LHS missing a factor of 2 | Adrienne Erickcek |

Page 123, 7 lines below Eq. (5.27) | perturbations
spelled wrong
| Chris D'Andrea |

Page 123, 2nd line from bottom | equated | Feng Guo |

Page 129, right before Eq. 5.62 | There should be an a^3 in the denominator of the last term on the right: (\dot a/a^3) \dot h_+. | Tong-Jie Zhang |

Page 131, last paragraph of Section 5.3 | "only modes
with k\eta_0 greater than ..." should be "only modes
with k\eta_0 less than ...".
| Olga Mena |

Page 135, above Eq. 5.27 | "Psi" should be Greek; i.e. I forgot the \ in TeX. | Bob Klauber, Eduardo Rozo |

Page 143 | "smoothness" has toooo many ooo's | Kate Land |

Page 152 , Second line of second paragraph |
P+3rho should of course be the famous \rho + 3P | Aravind Natarajan |

Page 153 , 2 lines below Eq 6.28 and two lines below that |
The references should be to Eq. (6.19), not (6.20). | Donghui Jeong |

Page 153, 2nd line after 6.28 | should read \rho^{1/2} = constant | Sergio Palomares-Ruiz |

Page 154 , Eq. (6.33) |
There is an extraneous \phi^{(0)} in the last term. | Donghui Jeong |

Page 158, Eqn 6.50 | Last a should have a ^ on top | Kate Land |

Page 159, after 6.53 | k^{-3} should be k^3 | Sergio Palomares-Ruiz |

Page 160 , 3 lines below Eq 6.57 |
The reference should be to Eq. (6.56), not (6.57). | Donghui Jeong |

Page 164, after Eq. 6.72 | "Compare this with Eq. (6.59)", not (6.57) | Feng Guo |

Page 165, 3rd line | comma should be outside the quotes | Sergio Palomares-Ruiz |

Page 166, 1st line after 6.78 | I should have pointed out that \delta T^0_i follows directly from Eq. 5.82. | Sergio Palomares-Ruiz |

Page 167, 4th line from bottom | "stresses" spelled wrong | Sergio Palomares-Ruiz |

Page 175 (thanks to Chris Gordon for pointing out an error in this erratum!), part (e) of Exercise (2) |
Eq. (6.12) cannot be used to derive (6.110). (6.12) was derived from (6.10), which in turn came by setting \Psi=-\Phi in Eq. (6.6). In the text, we were content to ignore anisotropic stress, so this approximation is ok. In the exercise, you are asked to go beyond this, so you must start again from (6.6) maintaining the distinction between \Psi and \Phi. | Tristan Smith |

Page 178, first line | \eta --> \delta | Tom Umeda |

Page 178, Eq (6.116) | RHS should be inverted | Adrienne Erickcek |

Page 182, 2nd line | Should be "going through" | Sergio Palomares-Ruiz |

Page 185 , 3rd line |
"bin of width dk", not k. | Donghui Jeong |

Page 195 , 5 lines below the head of section 7.3.1 |
Too many "in"s. | Donghui Jeong |

Page 201 , 5 lines below Eq 7.57 |
we actually recognize this as 3\delta/(2y+2)y. I.e., the y should be in the denominator not numerator. | Donghui Jeong |

Page 201 , Eq 7.60 |
The second term in brackets on the right should be 6y not 3y. Apparently
this mistake does not propagate to later equations; the later ones are
correct.
| Kiyona Mizukami |

Page 203 , Eq 7.65 |
A \Phi_p is missing from the RHS: C_1 is proportional to \Phi_p. | Donghui Jeong |

Page 204, after Eq 7.70 | "Asymptote" mis-spelled | Takashi Horikoshi |

Page 206, the fourth line of the paragraph between Eq. 7.73 and Eq.
7.74 | coefficient of last term is "-3/2" not "3/2" | Teeraparb Chantavat |

Page 214, Exercise 9 after Eq. (7.84)
| The tophat filter should be normalized so that it integrates to unity, so it's equal to 1/V_R for x less than R, not 1. Here V_R is the volume of a sphere of radius R | Simon DeDeo |

Page 215, Exercise 9, part (c) |
monotonically mis-spelled and \sigma_R is a decreasing function
of R | Adrienne Erickcek |

Page 215, Exercise 11 |
Eq. (7.77) for the growth factor cannot be used in a dark energy model with
w different than -1. Jonathan Pritchard has written up a beautiful set of
notes illustrating this.

Page 245, Last paragraph | "of" mis-spelled [that's a good trick!] | Kate Land |

Page 251, Label in Fig. 8.17 | The exponent should be +1/2 not -1/2 | Pedro Ferreira |

Page 258, first line (8.86) | \Delta should not be barred | Tom Umeda |

Page 258, first line (8.87) | last two terms should be multiplied by \Phi(0) | Tom Umeda |

Page 369, after Eq. (11.103) |
size of pixels in radians squared since the size of a pixel is an area | Christopher Gordon |

Page 371, Eqns 11.118-9 and the line just before them | I believe that I've left out a factor of 1/(2\pi)^3 when computing the number of all Fourier vectors in a spherical shell. This missing factor shows up in the 2 eqns mentioned, so the Fisher matrix is smaller by this amount, and the error on the power spectrum larger by a factor of (2\pi)^{3/2}. It's a big mistake, and I came across it by comparing with the very interesting paper of Rimes & Hamilton. Please let me know if you disagree. | |

Page 397, Exercise 12 | "physical size" should replace "physical distance" | Sergio Palomares-Ruiz |

Page 399, Solution to Ex. 1, in between A.58
and A.59 | The integral is \sqrt\pi/4, Not \sqrt\pi/2. This is apparently just a typo because A.59 as is is correct. | Marja Annala via Petri Mutka |
