In this paper we present a quantum field theory calculation of the bulk properties of an ensemble of spin one-half particles in the presence of a homogenous background magnetic field. We present explicit formulas appropriate at zero and finite temperature for both charged and uncharged particles including the effect of the anomalous magnetic moment.
