Hi Lars

I have attached all the files including the stylefiles from the publisher.  The error occurs at line 8 of the bibliography which is \bibitem{cord10}
I can't see anything wrong. I have been line by line through all the chapters.  I am using PCTex v. 5.1.  That really should not make this happen.

it is very hard to help without more information about your document.
Have you tried taking a copy of your book, place it in a different dir,
and then start to remove/outcomment stuff until the error goes away.
That at least will give you a clue as to where it is located.

Also that error, should have a line number attached to it.
