Arnold Sommerfeld's books

  1. Nov 1, 2012 #1
    Recently I was reminded of a series of textbooks by Arnold Sommerfeld. When I was a young man, these were obligatory offerings at any respectable bookstore. I never purchased them because I had other things on my plate. Now I cannot seem to find them in print.

    I did find this assessment of these books:


    "Arnold Sommerfeld: Lectures on Theoretical Physics
    Sommerfeld is God for mathematical physics. "

    I always assumed that Sommerfeld's books were required reading for anybody who is anybody in understanding (the) Universe. Can these books be resurrected?
