We propose a gauge-invariant and manifestly UV finite resummation of the physics of hard thermal or dense loops~HTL-HDL ! in the thermodynamics of the quark-gluon plasma. The starting point is a simple, effectively one-loop expression for the entropy or the quark density which is derived from the fully self-consistent two-loop skeleton approximation to the free energy, but subject to further approximations, whose quality is tested in a scalar toy model. In contrast with the direct HTL-HDL… CONTINUE READING
