The mass function of young star clusters in spiral galaxies

An error was introduced in the equation used to calculate the number of clusters per age- and luminosity bin (Eq. (7)), affecting the predicted age distribution for a given cluster luminosity. Correction of this error leads to small adjustments in the relation between absolute magnitude and median age (Fig. 4) and in the model luminosity functions (Fig. 7). However, the changes are small enough that the results and conclusions of the paper remain unchanged.
