Canuto, V., and H.-Y. Chiu, 1968: Thermodynamic properties of a magnetized Fermi gas. Phys. Rev., 173, 1220-1228, doi:10.1103/PhysRev.173.1220.

In a previous paper, we calculated the equation of state of a Fermi gas at arbitrary temperature in a uniform and constant magnetic field of arbitrary strength. (Such a gas is now referred to as a magnetized Fermi gas.) In the present paper, we have studied the properties of the equation of state and have obtained simplified expressions for the normal stresses and the energy and particle densities. These expressions can be used in astrophysical applications. We have found that under suitable conditions of degeneracy (the temperature approaching 0), a magnetized Fermi gas behaves exactly as a one-dimensional gas, which has been studied extensively as a theoretical problem. We have also obtained expressions for the grand partition function.
