The degeneracy discriminant, that specifies the requirement for applicability of classical Maxwell-Blotzman statistics, is z<<1 where z is fugacity and [itex]z=exp^(\mu/kT)[/itex]. However when [itex](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

T\to \infty [/itex] we would have [itex]

z\to 1 [/itex] which means we are in quantum regime while it is obvious that we are in classical regime at high temperatures. And there is also such a discrepancy when [itex]

T\to 0 [/itex]. Could anyone please guide me?
