Throughout chapters 5 and 7, the book uses standard deviations as parameters of the function prob() and the error variables \varspeilon. The problem with those expressions is that standard deviations are not additive. The correct notation (which will be in the second printing) involves variances, which are additive.

In chapter 13 on FastSLAM, there is a typo that effects many different
equations. The chapter erroneously states the measurement covariance
to be R_t, whereas in the remainder of this book it has been defined
as Q_t. The affected equations and tables are:
