Default Finding B in Quadratic Sieve

I'm coding QS, everything else is done, except for choosing the proper smoothness bound B.


B = exp((1/2 + o(1))(log n log log n)^(1/2))
page 8, http://www.math.leidenuniv.nl/~reinier/ant/sieving.pdf

I do not understand the little o notation. What do I substitute for o(1) to calculate for B?
