    • Abstract


      We study some thermodynamic quantities for the Klein–Gordon equation with a linear plus inverselinear, scalar potential. We obtain the energy eigenvalues with the help of the quantization rule from the biconfluent Heun’s equation.We use a method based on the Euler–MacLaurin formula to analytically compute thethermal functions by considering only the contribution of positive part of the spectrum to the partition function.
