Abstract Several common thermodynamic functions of ideal two- and three-dimensional Fermi gases of spin1/2 have been tabulated as functions oft=T/T F, whereT is the temperature andT F is the Fermi temperature. The tables, presented elsewhere, are discussed. The entries in the tables are given at intervals of δt=0.001 for 0≤t≤5. The functions which are tabulated are: (i) the reduced chemical potential ζ(t) ≡ μ(t)/μ(0), (ii) the reduced internal energyu(t)=U(t)/U(0), (iii) the reduced entropys(t)=S(t)/Nk, and (iv) the reduced magnetic susceptibility ϕ(t)=χ(t)/χ(0). In these expressions,N is the number of particles in the gas andk is Boltzmann's constant. The first of these functions, ζ(t), is given to eight places beyond the decimal point, while the others are given to six places.
