Rational function minimax approximations are given for the complete Fermi-Dirac integrals of orders -½, ½, 3/2, and 5/2. In each case, three sets of approximations are provided with maximum relative error ≈ 10-4, 10-8, and 10-12, respectively. These approximations can be used to compute the Fermi-Dirac integrals efficiently over the entire range. Approximations to the corresponding inverse functions with an accuracy of ≈ 10-4 and 10-8 are also obtained.
