An analytic approximation of the Fermi function F(Z, E) is proposed. The formula is applicable over a wide range of atomic numbers, Z, and of electron energies, E. It is sufficiently accurate and simple to use. An example shows how to employ the approximation in analysis of the complex beta decay schemes encountered among the short-lived fission fragments.
