In Appourchaux et al. (2014), the correct Eq. (1) should have been written with a minus sign in front of the second bracket as (1)where ν is the mode frequency, νmax is the frequency of maximum mode height, α is the power law index, Γα is the factor of the power law, ΔΓdip is the depth of the dip, Wdip is the width of the dip and νdip is the frequency of the dip. The fits in Appourchaux et al. (2014) were indeed performed with the minus sign.

Another error was also found in the original Table 3 of Appourchaux et al. (2014) pretending to give the parameters of Eq. (1). As a matter of fact, in that Table 3, the parameter Wdip as reported is related to the full width at half maximum (FWHM) calculated in frequency space, and in addition wrongly computed as it should have been about 1.5 times larger. Using Eq. (1) given above, we can deduce the proper relation between FWHMdip and Wdip as (2)

In Table 1, we give the parameters that were not affected by the mistake supplemented by the value of νdip which was not given in Appourchaux et al. (2014). In Table 2, we give the parameter Wdip that was not properly given in the Table 3 of Appourchaux et al. (2014), together with the corrected FWHMdip, a value which was not correct in Table 3 of Appourchaux et al. (2014) and was wrongly named. We also note that from the expression of Eq. (1), there are two solutions for Wdip since we have (3)where is the solution greater than νmax, while is the solution smaller than νmax. Here the solution chosen for Wdip is the former solution.

These corrections do not affect the conclusions reached for the dependence of these parameters upon the effective temperature and νmax.

Parameters of Eq. (1) as a function of the effective temperature for all 28 stars, for the power law dependence (left) and for the Lorentzian fit (right). The median value together with the credible intervals at 33% and 66% were derived from a Monte-Carlo simulation of the fit. The orange line shows the temperature dependence of the linewidth at the frequency of maximum mode height as derived by Appourchaux et al. (2012). The open diamond is the result of the fit for the solar data of the LOI. The open triangles are the results of the fit for the sub-giant stars of Benomar et al. (2013). The solid lines show a linear fit of the parameters with respect to the effective temperature. The Lorentzian parameters for stars for which the Lorentzian fit is not significant are not plotted.
