Abstract

Calculation of equation of state in stellar interiors becomes difficult as contained gas deviates from perfect gas. We present a method for the calculation of electron pressure in terms of density and temperature in the presence of degeneracy. The method is applicable for T < 10(9) K, and requires complete ionization.
