Abstract

The equation of state of the hydrogen plasma is calculated by the restricted path integral Monte Carlo method. We have investigated the plasma from the classical weak coupling regime to the quantum strongly coupled regime. Good agreement is found with the existing theories for low electronic degeneracy. Inception of molecular formation is observed at low densities and temperatures.
