Canuto, V., and E. Tsiang, 1976: On the equation of state for an electron gas in an intense magnetic field. Phys. Lett. B, 62, 366-368, doi:10.1016/0370-2693(76)90098-8.

In this paper we derive the equation of state for a relativistic electron gas imbedded in a static homogeneous magnetic field of arbitrary strength. The derivation is based on the evaluation of the energy-momentum tensor and the use of Dirac's equation for such a problem. Contrary to a derivation presented several years ago, the present derivation is completely gauge-invariant. We also show how to recover, in an exact manner, the perfect gas law for the case of weak magnetic fields.
