In the above-cited paper, which appeared in the IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering, vol. 19, no. 8, pp. 1116-1130, Aug. 2007, some information appeared incorrectly. We apologize for the error. Please see the list of corrections:

    • On p. 1118 in [ 1 ], in the paragraph above Definition 1, "follows:." should have been "follows:"

    • On p. 1122, right column, line -16 from the bottom, " $b E\!\!:\!\!B\;a$ " should have been " $b\; E\!\!:\!\!B\;a$ ."

    • On p. 1123, the display equation in Proposition 2 appeared incorrectly.

    Instead of appearing as:

    It should have appeared as:

    • On p. 1126, right column, line -7 from the bottom, the following equation:

    $$R_{1}\circ R_{2}:\subseteq Combine(R_{11}\circ R_{2}, \ldots, R_{1k}\circ R_{2})$$

    should have appeared as:

    $$R_{1}\circ R_{2}\; Combine(R_{11}\circ R_{2}, \ldots, R_{1k}\circ R_{2}).$$

    • On p. 1129, the Acknowledgments section was left out. It should have appeared as shown below:
