(1) In Table 2, the parameter values should be changed as follows: (effective mass including suspension is 1.25 times the slider mass (1.59 mg)). (effective moment of inertia including suspension is 1.36 times that of the slider only ()).The mass and moment of inertia of the slider are important parameters for determining the slider instability. If the mass and moment of inertia listed in Table 2 are used, the slider does not become unstable.
(2) The air-bearing damping coefficients, described on p. 70, in the right-hand column, line 10, are determined not by and but by and .
(3) In the caption of Fig. 7, should be replaced with , as described in the text. However, the difference between the calculated results for and is very small.
We would like to thank Professor D. B. Bogy for bringing these errors to our attention.
