(1) In Table 2, the parameter values should be changed as follows:$M=1.918mg$ (effective mass including suspension is 1.25 times the slider mass (1.59 mg)).$J=2.971×10−13kgm2$ (effective moment of inertia including suspension is 1.36 times that of the slider only ($2.19×10−13kgm2$)).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 $cf=2ζfMkf0$ and $cr=2ζrMkr0$ but by $cf=2ζfMkf$ and $cr=2ζrMkr$.

(3) In the caption of Fig. 7, $r=2.4$ should be replaced with $r=2.6$, as described in the text. However, the difference between the calculated results for $r=2.4$ and $r=2.6$ is very small.

We would like to thank Professor D. B. Bogy for bringing these errors to our attention.
