How Incorrect Is the Classical Partition Function for the Ideal Gas?
Kroemer, Herbert
American Journal of Physics, v48 n11 p962-63 Nov 1980
Discussed is the classical partition function for the ideal gas and how it differs from the exact value for bosons or fermions in the classical regime. The differences in the two values are negligible hence the classical treatment leads in the end to correct answers for all observables. (Author/DS)
