Key words: line: profiles - techniques: spectroscopic - stars: variables: general - errata, addenda

The formulae for $\chi^2_\nu$ in Eq. (1) and for the errors in Eqs. (2) and (3) were defined and proposed by Daszynska-Daszkiewicz (private communication). A similar definition, but for complex amplitudes of photometric and radial velocity variations, has already been applied by Daszynska-Daszkiewicz et al. (2003, 2005) in their method of simultaneous determination of the degree $\ell$ and the non-adiabatic parameter f for non-radially pulsating stars.

I apologize for not mentioning this in the original paper.
