dc.description.abstractJuttner used the conventional theory of relativistic statistical mechanics to calculate the energy of a relativistic ideal gas in 1911. An alternative derivation of the energy of a relativistic ideal gas was published by Horwitz, Schieve and Piron in 1981 within the context of parametrized relativistic statistical mechanics. The resulting energy in the ultrarelativistic regime differs from Juttner's result. We review the derivations of energy and identify physical regimes for testing the validity of the two theories in accelerator physics and cosmology.en_US
