Path Integral Calculation of Shock Hugoniot Curves of Precompressed Liquid Deuterium

B. Militzer

Path integral Monte Carlo simulations have been used to study
deuterium at high pressure and temperature. The equation of state has
been derived in the temperature and density region of 10000 < T < 1000000 K
and 0.6 < rho < 2.5 g/cc. A
series of shock Hugoniot curves is computed for different initial
compressions in order to compare with current and future shock wave
experiments using liquid deuterium samples precompressed in diamond
anvil cells.
