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

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.

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

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

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,

Free energy and ionization in dense plasmas of the light elements

Pade approximations for the free energy of plasmas are given which take into account multiple ionization effects. The free energy landscape over the degrees of ionization is discussed. On the example

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 equation of state for stellar envelopes. I - An occupation probability formalism for the truncation of internal partition functions

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
