Tables of equation-of-state, thermodynamic properties, and shock Hugoniot for hot dense fluid deuterium

We present computational results and tables of the equation-of-state, thermodynamic properties, and shock Hugoniot for hot dense fluid deuterium. The present results are generated using a recently

On the Calculation of the Electrical Conductivity of Hot Dense Nonideal Plasmas

Abstract— Factors affecting the calculation of the electrical conductivity of hot dense nonideal plasma systems are revisited and scrutinized. Essential features relevant to truncation of the

Dissociation and ionization equilibria of deuterium fluid over a wide range of temperatures and densities

We investigate the dissociation and ionization equilibria of deuterium fluid over a wide range of temperatures and densities. The partition functions for molecular and atomic species are evaluated,

Erratum: “Equation-of-state, critical constants, and thermodynamic properties of lithium at high energy density” [Phys. Plasmas 26, 122702 (2019)]

High-density lithium plasmas are expected to be generated in the Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF) reactor chamber due to energy deposition of the prompt X-rays and ion debris in the first wall.

An equation of state for material in stellar envelopes, subject to the limits of temperature less than about 10 to the 7th K and density less than about .01 g/cu cm is presented. The equation makes

Simple Expression of Occupation Probability in the “Chemical Picture”

We propose a simple analytical expression for the occupation probability of highly excited states in low-density hydrogenic plasmas. This expression is based on the "chemical picture" and is derived

The importance of excited states in the thermodynamics of partially ionized plasma

The expansion of thermodynamic functions into series in terms of degrees of activity in the grand canonical ensemble is used to consistently include the contribution of highly excited states to

Response to “Comment on ‘On the ionization equilibrium of hot hydrogen plasma and thermodynamic consistency of formulating finite partition functions’ ” [Phys. Plasmas 17, 124705 (2010)]

Potekhin [Phys. Plasmas 17, 124705 (2010)] claims that the inconsistencies in previous models of the well-known occupation probability formalism, which we have pointed out in Zaghloul [Phys. Plasmas

The equation of state for the solar interior is normally assumed to be a fully ionized gas corrected by the Debye-Hueckel Coulomb interaction, partial degeneracy, and radiation pressure. The

Zaghloul [Phys. Plasmas 17, 062701 (2010)] reconsiders the occupation probability formalism in plasma thermodynamics and claims inconsistencies in previous models. I show that the origin of this

Inconsistency in Fermi’s probability of the quantum states

AbstractWe point out an important hidden inconsistency in Fermi’s probability of the quantum states that engendered inconsistent/inaccurate equations-of-state extensively used in the literature to
