Correction notice
In this erratum, (i) we repair a typographical error in Eq. (44) of our publication [D. Pesme, C. Riconda, and V. T. Tikhonchuk, Phys. Plasmas 12, 092101 (2005)] and (ii) we correct an algebraic mistake concerning the Korteweg-de-Vries (KdV) limits (44) and (49) of the general dispersion relation (39) of our publication. This algebraic error invalidates some of our statements concerning the existence of the decay H2 instability in the KdV limit. We consequently correct the approximate equation governing the decay H2 instability in the KdV limit. We display the corrected figures corresponding to the numerical solutions of the general dispersion relation (39).
