Calculations of equation of state, transport coefficients, and stopping power of dense plasmas are presented. Theoretical results have been obtained using the first-principles average-atom model self-consistent approach for astrophysical and laboratory plasmas (SCAALP) based on the finite-temperature density-functional theory and the Gibbs–Bogolyubov inequality. Numerical results, comparisons with molecular dynamics, and Monte Carlo simulations and experiments are presented and discussed in the high energy density physics domain including part of the warm dense matter regime. Results show that the average-atom model SCAALP is well suited to describe thermodynamic and transport properties for a wide range of high energy density physics applications.
