This study reviews some of the essential properties of fermion systems. In order to simplify the calculation of the mean energy per particle and of some other averaged quantities, expansions and approximate formulae are compiled, covering both general and specific states of the system. In most of the relations dimensionless quantities are used. These results all refer to the ideal state, as the influence of interactions between the particles is neglected. The compiled results are applicable to electron gas in low-density plasmas and in solid conductors, to the theory of atomic nuclei, to white dwarfs and to neutronic matter in neutron stars.
