Chiu, H.-Y., V. Canuto, and L. Fassio-Canuto, 1968: Quantum theory of an electron gas with anomalous magnetic moments in intense magnetic fields. Phys. Rev., 176, 1438-1442, doi:10.1103/PhysRev.176.1438.

In this paper we have continued our investigation of the properties of an electron gas in intense magnetic fields. We have obtained expressions for the thermodynamic energy density, particle density, the magnetic moment, and pair density (created in equilibrium with the system) for a gas of electrons with an anomalous magnetic moment, using the exact eigenvalues of the Dirac-Pauli equation for an electron with an anomalous magnetic moment, obtained by Ternov et al. According to the solution of Ternov et al., the lowest energy states of the electrons can be zero at certain field strengths. We have shown that pair creation does not occur spontaneously at the expense of the magnetic-field energy, but only at the expense of the thermodynamic energy of other particles of the system. Exact expressions for the pair density are given.
