The quantum thermodynamic functions of plasma in terms of the Green’s function
Abstract: The objective of this paper is to calculate the third virial coefficient in Hartree approximation, Hartree-Fock approximation and the MontrollWard contribution of plasma byusing the Green’s function technique in terms of the interaction parameter , and used the result to calculate the quantum thermodynamic functions for one and two component plasma in the case of , where is the thermal De Broglie wave-length. We compared our results with others.
