Wolfgang Christian, and
The STP IdealQuantumGas program is a simulation of an ideal quantum gas in equilibrium with a heat bath. The program computes the density of states, particle distribution function, and energy occupancy diagram. The default system is a three-dimensional ideal Fermi gas of N=100 particles at temperature T=10.
STP IdealQuantumGas is part of a suite of Open Source Physics programs that model aspects of Statistical and Thermal Physics (STP). The program is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the stp_IdealQuantumGas.jar file will run the program if Java is installed on your computer. Additional programs can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, STP, or Statistical and Thermal Physics.
