(i) The sentence following (4.1) on p. 465 should be corrected as follows: "Indeed let $m$ be a positive integer not divisible by 4 such that the greatest common divisor of $m$ and the discriminant of $F$ divides 2, and let ..." (ii) In the second line from the bottom of p. 472, $\mathfrak q$ should be $q$. (iii) The constant in the asymptotic relation (9.3) on p. 487 is incorrect, both because of double-counting and because the formula for $q(\rho)$ holds in general only if $q(\psi)$ is relatively prime to $d_K$. However, the bound $\vartheta^{\ab, K}_{\Q,2}(x) \ll x$ still holds, and if (9.3) is replaced by this bound then the rest of the argument goes through as before.

A deformation of the Tate module, J. of Algebra 229 (2000), 280 -- 313.
The formula for $\theta(c)$ on p. 294 is in error: The coefficient of $X^2$ should be $(c^4-c^2)/12$, not $(c^4+2c^2-3c)/24$. Although very embarrassing, the error is inconsequential in the sense that there was no need to display the coefficient of $X^2$ in the first place.

Galois theory, elliptic curves, and root numbers, Compositio Math. (1996), 311 -- 349.
In the first line of the paragraph containing displayed formula (3.6) on p. 331, the equation $K=F(\Delta^{1/e})$ should be $K=F(\varpi^{1/e})$.
