Page 438 note 5; July 2004: Massimo Cerdonio assures me that he refused all offers to become a big player in European interferometry, understanding that were he to dilute his efforts, the resonant detectors for which he has a particular passion would be put at risk.

Typographical Errors by Page Number:

(If you find any typos in addition to the ones listed here please let me know in case there should be a second edition)

p 234 Note 1 is irrelevant. It repeats the note already present in the diagram. Perhaps the box in the diagram could be removed to save renumbering notes.

p 236 4th sentence: delete `rather than after’

p 236 three lines up: delete `yet’

p 238 Paragraph break should come before `I’ll start my richer description

p536 index lists seismic noise but nothing about seismic noise on p 536

p 544 footnote 6: `… ). But’ should be `…), but’ [ie, merge two sentences.
