The book’s page on springer.com indicates whether it is considered a textbook and may have a link to request an instructor’s copy.


The purpose of sampling (inspection copies) is only to give instructors an idea if the book is suitable for course usetherefore, the majority of titles have the complete books in an online reader with Digital Rights Management (DRM) and a time-limitation of 30 days.
