The report contains theoretical work on pressure ionization, exchange energy, and degeneracy effects in high pressure plasmas. In the numerical examples, alkali plasmas are discussed. In addition tables of the Sommerfeld inegrals of degenerate electron gases are presented. With regard to the acceleration of plasmas in high density plasmas, a critical analysis of the propagation of wave pockets is given within the frame of conventional parabolic quantum theory.
