Mode Counting vs. Phase Space

Yosun Chang

October 13, 2005

In its practical usage, the density of states replaces the degeneracy (in the

continuum limit) in the appropriate partition function.

The (usual definition of the) density of states (DoS) is the number of states

in the range E to E + dE. Alternate definitions

may use, for example, ω to ω + dω, where frequency is a more prudent

parameter to use.

Define N as the total number of states or modes, and also define:

number of states

N

=

unit volume

V

and let g denote the DoS, defined as:

G :=

(1)

dG

= number of states in E to E + dE

(2)

dE

Note that per unit volume refers to the spacing between intervals or points,

and thus may be a length or area in lower dimensions.

There are, in general, two equivalent ways to calculating the density of state.

Method one involves counting modes (i.e., the number

of states). After deducing G, one substitute the dispersion relation to obtain

G = G(E), then one takes the derivative

with respect to E to get g, the DoS. Note that in this version, one has to

divide G by the number of quadrants, since

only the energy values in the first quadrant are of matter.

Method two involves calculating the momentum integral in phase space. n

is the dimension number.

G= n

dn p,

g=

**whence after finding G, one subs in the dispersion relation, then differentiate
**

with respect to E to obtain g.

Both methods are easy. Both utilize the definitions

of G (total number of states per unit volume) and g above (number of states

ver unit volume in a thin shell of energy).
