I don't mean to be too restrictive about "on-line seller."  If I have
to make a phone call or write a letter to buy the book, that's ok if
it's in stock.

I have found the book and have sent an email to confirm its
availability. Will get back to you as soon as I hear something. (or
even if I don't).

Cross your fingers. :-)

Hi physics9000,

I emailed the publisher, Birkhauser Boston, and they replied telling
me that the book is out of print and not available through them. (It
lists for $121USD there)

Birkhauser Boston

However, they indicated that copies are probably available via
university or educational book sites.

Sure enough, I found 2 copies here - both new - for $114USD:


The shipping information indicates that the book is available for
shipping in 5-7 business days. Although not listed as "In stock" it is
also not listed as "special order" or "unavailable," so should be
shipped as promised.

I have no way to confirm that without actually placing an order, so
will have to leave that up to you.

Looks like an interesting book! I hope that works out for you. If not,
let me know.
