Problem 52P

Consider an ideal gas of highly relativistic particles (such as photons or fast-moving electrons), whose energy-momentum relation is E = pc instead of E = p2/2m. Assume that these particles live in a one-dimensional universe. By following the same logic as above, derive a formula for the single-particle partition function, Z1, for one particle in this gas.

CS 064 Notes 02/09/16  Tauntology- something that’s always true  Ex. x ∨¬ x, by theorem 7.2  (x ∨¬ x ) ∧(y  y) =T ∧( y  y) ; by Theorem 7.2 (x ∨¬ x) =T ∧(¬ y ∨ y) ; by proposition 7.3 (x  y¬= x ∨ y) = T ∧( y ∨¬ y) ; by commutative property of ∨ =T∧T ; by Theorem 7.2 (x ∨ ¬ x) = T ; definition...
