Abstract

We illustrate how Gaussian quadratures obtained from the weight functions, w(x) = xk/(ex + 1), for k = -1/2, 1/2, 3/2, 5/2, on the interval [0, ∞], may be used to accurately determine Fermi-Dirac integrals. We give numerical examples and list the recursion coefficients and the 24 point quadrature rule for k = -½.
