Erratum: Minimal sets of periods for Morse-Smale diffeomorphisms on orientable compact surfaces. (English) Zbl 1214.37027

In this erratum to [the authors, Houston J. Math. 35, No. 3, 835–855 (2009; Zbl 1189.37029)] the Lefschetz zeta function of a Morse-Smale diffeomorphism is constructed. The authors prove that in the minimal set of Lefschetz periods there are no even numbers. As a corollary it is proved that if \( g = 2^{n-2} + 1 \), for \( n \geq 2 \) then there is no information in the Lefschetz zeta function to rule out the set of minimal periods is empty.
