Coulomb corrections to the equation of state of degenerate matter
are usually described by Debye-Hückel theory; however, recent
studies have considered modifications of thermodynamic quantities
which are caused by the interactions of charged particles beyond the
Debye-Hückel approximation. Based on the weakly-coupled plasma
limit, the formulae for the physical properties of non-ideal effects
on the equation of state are derived. The treatment of the non-ideal
effects due to Coulomb coupling combines the results of
quantum-statistic calculations for the electrons,
