In the review article entitled “Charged Particle, Photon Multiplicity, and Transverse Energy Production in High-Energy Heavy-Ion Collisions” [1], the following two modifications are suggested to take care of some minor errors.

(1) There were some descriptive errors in last paragraph of Section  3.4 as well as in corresponding Figures  14, 15, and 16. The following modifications are done both in the text and in Figures  14, 15, and 16. In addition to that a new figure is also added to the literature as Figure 45.

The pseudorapidity distributions of charged particles in Cu + Cu, Au + Au, and Pb + Pb most central collisions at different energies are shown in Figures 14, 15, and 16, respectively. These distributions are fitted with the double Gaussian function as given in equation (6) of “Charged Particle, Photon Multiplicity, and Transverse Energy Production in High-Energy Heavy-Ion Collisions,” which are represented by solid lines. The widths ( and ) and the amplitude parameters ( and ) obtained from the double Gaussian fitting to 0–6% centrality RHIC data are already given in Tables  2, 3, and 4. Now to explain the charged particle density distributions in terms of Landau hydrodynamics the pseudorapidity distribution of charged particles () should be converted into rapidity distribution () by applying a Jacobian transformation. For this one needs to know the information about particle ratio and spectra measurements in the midrapidity as described in [2]. After the Jacobian transformation to distribution of Pb + Pb collisions at  TeV, the rapidity distribution of charged particles is obtained, as shown in Figure 45. Now the data is fitted with a Gaussian and Landau-Carruthers functions represented by solid and dotted lines, respectively. It can be seen from Figure 45 that the Gaussian function describes the data nicely. Similar exercises can be carried out to get the from the after Jacobian transformation. Then the widths are obtained after fitting the distributions by Gaussian and Landau-Carruthers functions, respectively. The ratios of the widths obtained from the Gaussian () and Landau-Carruthers () fittings to are calculated for all the energies, which are shown in Figure  17 of “Charged Particle, Photon Multiplicity, and Transverse Energy Production in High-Energy Heavy-Ion Collisions.” It can be seen from Figure  17 that the pion data at AGS and SPS energies are in close agreement with the Landau hydrodynamics, whereas the deviations increase at RHIC and LHC energies.

(2) Table 6 should replace Table  6 of Section  9 in “Charged Particle, Photon Multiplicity, and Transverse Energy Production in High-Energy Heavy-Ion Collisions.”
