The electronpositron portion of the two equations of state are identical. Differences between the two EOS routines originate from the model used for nucleons (interacting nucleons in a liquid dropish model versus noninteracting Boltzmann nucleons), and the model used for the composition. LS Baryon Entropy:
The entropy from baryons, on the other hand, appears to be well behaved everwhere is this section of the rhoT plane. In fact, baryons dominate the magnitude of the total entropy. The black ledge in the total entropy isn't real. I simply capped the largest value plotted, since the entropy skyrockets in regions where radiation and e^{+}e^{} dominate. LS Total Entropy:
NSE Baryon Entropy:
Looks a bit different than an LS based EOS. Again, the black ledge in the total entropy isn't real. I simply capped the largest value plotted. NSE Total Entropy:
LS and NSE Entropies Compared:
The disagreements here are larger than the pressure and energy cases.
