We study thermal corrections to the dispersion relations of massive fundamen- tal particles immersed in weakly coupled non-Abelian plasmas. The cases covered include quarks in the QCD (quark-gluon) plasma, as well as N = 2 quarks and scalars in an N = 4 Super Yang-Mills plasma. We perform the calculations to leading order in a weak coupling expansion, and consider all mass scales of the fundamental fields, ranging from massless particles all the way to bare masses parametrically larger than the… Expand
