  • Two errors have been detected. First, the actual auxiliary variable used ζ in several figures of the paper is instead of the one of equation (1). Then, the sentence below equation (1) should say that ζ scales with the square root of the logarithm of B. Also, in lines 11-12 of page 9, it should say 'around ζ 2 where B/BM ∼ 0.02', instead of B/BM ∼ 0.01. Second, a logarithm is missing in equation (20), the correct form being This agrees perfectly well with the scaling shown in figure 4(c).
