Abstract
Abstract Several equation of state models for hot, dense matter are compared with experimental data for the shock Hugoniots of beryllium, aluminum, iron, copper, and molybdenum up to extreme pressures. The best models are in good agreement with experiment and with one another, suggesting that our understanding of dense, partially ionized matter is good.
