**Page viii(*)**. The fourth line of paragraph 4 is missing "of", in text that should read "leads to the definition of the market price of risk".**Page 37(*)**. The last line of paragraph 2 should say "then" instead of "than" in "then that claim would have been synthesized".**Page 56(*)**. Six lines from the bottom, should be "than it is" instead of "then it is"**Page 58(*)**. Second displayed equation from bottom should have the integrand on the left-hand-side as the square of*dW(s)*, rather than*dW(t)*.**Page 67**. Figure 3.12 has incorrect entries in the lower two nodes at time 2. In both nodes, the subscripts `2' should be `3' in both numerator and denominator.**Page 82**. The fourth line of the last paragraph should finish with**Page 89**. The equation prior to the self-financing strategies theorem accidentally replaces the stock holding with the bond holding. The displayed equation (line 17) should read

A similar error is present on line nine.The theorem on self-financing strategies itself is definitively correct.

**Page 91**. The last line of paragraph 4, is missing a*t*from the drift term of*S*, thus:_{t}**Page 100(*)**. The end of line 7 should be "At time 0 we" and not "At time*t*we".**Page 102**. The dollar value of the replicating portfolio accidentally replaces the bond holding with the stock holding. The equation at the end of line 14 should read**Page 112**. The SDE for the discounted reinvested stock price (lines 9-10) has an incorrect drift term, which lacks the Ito correction. It should be:**Page 127**. The forward FX rate in the first line is missing the exponential function and should be*C*_{0}exp((*r*-*u*)*T*).**Page 137(*)**. The expression for*dr*on line 5, should have a final*dt*multiplying its last term to make it into an infinitessimal.**Page 158(*)**. The fourth line of text from the bottom of the page as a repeated "and and", which should just be "and".**Page 162**. The sentence in the middle of the page beginning `An advantage of the HJM framework' is missing the word `to' from the phrase `we are free choose'.**Page 174(*)**. In the third displayed equation, the second term in the summand should be*y*, not_{i}(T)*y*._{i}(t)**Page 188**. The integral on line 6 should be with respect to the measure**P**rather than**Q**. Further, the integral on the last line of the first paragraph should be**Page 194**. In the displayed equation for*C*_{t}, line 4, its volatility should only be a function of*t*and not of both*t*and*T*.**Page 195(*)**. In the second, fourth and fifth displayed equations the second argument of both η and ξ should be*u*and not*T*.**Page 203(*)**. The last reference on the page should be to the*Journal of Financial Economics*not the*Journal of Finance*.**Page 209**. In the last line of Table A.1, the stock price should be 120, and not 100.**Page 213**. Answer to exercise 3.9, the first displayed equation should say (twice)*W*rather than_{s}*W*. That is:_{t}**Page 216**. The definition of**Autoregressive**should read "of a process, that it is*mean-reverting*"
