Two equations in Smith and Kliche (2005) contain errors. In (10), the exponent of the factor (μ + 4) on the right-hand side should also be μ + 4. The correct equation, reading
i1558-8432-45-4-649-e10
was used to derive the moment estimators for Nw listed in the appendix, but in the estimator listed for the M2, M4, M6 combination of moments the factor (μ̂ + 2) in the numerator should be (μ̂ + 3). The correct equation there [appendix section b(2)] is
i1558-8432-45-4-649-eq1
In Smith and Kliche (2005), this correction affects only the M2, M4, M6 line in Fig. 11; on the scales used in that figure, the difference is barely perceptible.
