© 2018 American Physical Society. II. STOPPING DISTANCES AT SMALL ANISOTROPY The second line of Eq. (5) should be (Formula Presented). A minor typo of B2(z) is corrected here. There were errors in the numerical code for computing the ratios of stopping distances by varying anisotropy with fixed temperature, entropy density, and energy density, respectively. The correct results are shown in Figs. 1-3 below. The qualitative features of Rx along the longitudinal direction remain unchanged in all the cases. However, for Rx along the transverse direction, the decrease by increasing anisotropy becomes milder when fixing temperature or energy density. For the case with fixed entropy density, Rx along the transverse direction even increases with anisotropy. Nonetheless, the correct results at small anisotropy are more consistent with the full numerical calculations at mid and large anisotropy. In summary, the conclusion in the original paper remains unchanged. (Figure Presented). The authors thank Raguram Subramaniam for pointing out the mistakes.
