In the above article,1 Table I presents wrong values in its last column, regarding the calculation of Δh. The wrong values are an exact copy of the correct values for the 4th column (Δϕ). The corrected and calculated values for the last column (Δh) are shown in the Table I of this erratum, which replaces the incorrect previous table.

Table I.

Critical cooling rates for glass formation (RC) of selected alloys in the literature (Refs. 2–4) and calculated values of λmin, Δϕ, Δnws1/3, and Δh.
