Magnetic Properties of a Dense Interacting Electron Gas

  • M. L. Glasser


The electron gas is an extremely reasonable and versatile model to use when one is trying to understand the nature of’ shiny’ things such as plasmas and metals. It is for this reason so much attention and effort has been devoted to the calculation of its physical properties, particularly the ground state energy. Unfortunately, exact results have been obtained only for densities higher or lower than the electron densities of real metals, but plausible approximation and interpolation schemes are presently available for the metallic range. Hence, the ground state properties of the electron fluid (in a uniformly charged positive background) are reasonable accurately known as a function of density [1, 2].
