Abstract
The authors regret that there is an incorrect equation in ref. 1. Eqn (18) in the manuscript, and the subsequent example, are intended to compute the conditional probability p(sis_{i1}) of observing a state si at monomer i given a state si1 at the previous monomer i1.^{1} The correct expression requires a similar calculation using the frequency n of the transitions from s_{i1} to s_{i}: (Formula Presented). In the original manuscript,1 the matrix elements M are taken to be the frequencies, but this is incorrect. Instead, these values of n require that a term be added to the calculation of the partition via a factor ζ added to the transfer matrix element of interest (i.e., M(s_{i},s_{i1})M(s_{i},s_{i1}) × ζ for s_{i},s_{i1}). The frequency can then be calculated via the expression: (Formula Presented) We numerically calculate the new quantities for these conditional probabilities, as a correction to Fig. 3 of the original manuscript,1 and plot them below against the original simulation values. The same parameters are used here as in the original manuscript. We note that, while possessing quantitative differences from the original (incorrect) values, these theoretical predictions still exhibit similar agreement with simulation values. We thus consider that the original parameters are still appropriate, and therefore the remainder of the manuscript remains quantitatively unchanged and the original conclusions are still valid. (Figure Presented). Acknowledgements We acknowledge Jason J. Madinya for bringing this error to our attention. The Royal Society of Chemistry apologises for these errors and any consequent inconvenience to authors and readers.
