An analytical solution of the temperature-perturbed Thomas-Fermi equation in order to determine boundary and initial parameters, corresponding to seven neutral-atomic zero-temperature solutions given by Slater and Krutter. An extension in directly-fitted range is presented, and the effects of the temperature perturbation on the equation of state are shown graphically for this extended range.
