We give a short review on recent progress in the field of automated calculations in finite-temperature field theory, where integration-by-parts techniques have proven (almost) as useful as in the zero-temperature case. Furthermore, we provide one concrete example of an evaluation of a new three-loop master sum-integral that exhibits maximal divergence.

Automatic integral reduction for higher order perturbative calculations
We present a program for the reduction of large systems of integrals to master integrals. The algorithm was first proposed by Laporta; in this paper, we implement it in MAPLE. We also develop two newExpand
Two-loop QCD gauge coupling at high temperatures
We determine the 2-loop effective gauge coupling of QCD at high temperatures, defined as a matching coefficient appearing in the dimensionally reduced effective field theory. The result allows toExpand
