“Half my life is an act of revision”

John Irving

My collaborators and I spend countless hours trying to ensure that all details in our published articles involve no mathematical errors. These articles are also put through multiple rounds of revision before they are published. However, it is inevitable that some errors can still fall through the cracks. If any such error were to have a major impact on a main conclusion of one of our published articles, then we would contact the journal of the article in question to make sure that the conclusion is corrected in some manner. On the other hand, some errors—that do not have a major impact on a main conclusion—are worthwhile to mention somewhere, but do not rise to the level that it is necessary to contact the journal. This page is dedicated to addressing such errors in my published articles.
