The series expansion of the plasmaelectron phase space density to the first order of 〈x〉 and 〈px〉 [Eq. (5) in Ref. 1] correctly reads fp ≈ fp0 - cos θ (〈x〉∂r + 〈px〉∂pr)fp,0 The zeroth-order term, fp,0, was not printed in Ref. 1. Accordingly, the correct expansion of the wakefield potential [Eq. (11) in Ref. 1] is ψ(r,θ) ≈ ψ0(r) -cos θ Xp ∂r ψ0 (r), the correct expansion of the source term of the wakefield potential [Eq. (14) in Ref. 1] is S(r, θ) ≈ S0(r) - cos θ Xp ∂rS0(r), and the correct expansions of the force terms [Eqs. (20a) and (20b) in Ref. 1] are Fr,b ≈ Fr,b,o - cos θ Xb ∂rFr,b,0, Fr,b ≈ Fr,p,o - cos θ 〈x〈 ∂rFr,p,0, The zeroth order terms in Eqs. (5), (11), (14), (20a), and (20b) are missing in the printing of Ref. 1 but were fully taken into account for the calculation of all derived equations of the mathematical model. The developed mathematical model and physical conclusions in Ref. 1 are therefore all unaltered by, and consistent with, the above corrections.
