Errata
 Tony Kennedy (15 Apr 2013)

My student says there an error on the top line of Table 7.2 on page 68? The diagram is the adjoint “box” for su(n) 
there should be a factor of n in front of the first term.
If I calculate the adjoint quadratic Casimir CA = 2n (choosing the normalization of the generators such that a = 1) then I can generate the same bubble graph by contracting two quadratic Casimirs or by (adjointly) tracing the (adjoint) box. The first gives me 4n2N and the latter 2?n(N/n)2 + 2(2N + N2) where ?=1 from your table or ?=n from his program, and of course N = n21. These two seem agree only for ?=n.

column m=30, Table 21.1 page 236, misprint: should be 36 instead of 56.

 Appendix B (17 Mar 2012)

The short argument in Appendix B is too good to be true
