Elementary Properties of a Degenerate Fermi Gas

We deal in this section with relatively elementary and well known results of the theory of special relativity. However, most of the corresponding notations used either in astrophysics or in statistical physics are rather unusual. Therefore a few words about these notations can be useful even for some advanced readers.
