Advances in perturbative thermal field theory
The progress in the last decade in perturbative quantum field theory at high temperatures and densities, made possible by the use of effective field theories and hard thermal/dense loop resummations
HTL Perturbation Theory to Two Loops
We calculate the pressure for pure-glue QCD at high temperature to two-loop order using hard-thermal-loop (HTL) perturbation theory. At this order, all the ultraviolet divergences can be absorbed
Scale-Invariant Resummed Perturbation at Finite Temperatures.
We use the scalar model with quartic interaction to illustrate how a nonperturbative variational technique combined with renormalization group (RG) properties efficiently resums perturbative
Critical behavior of the 2d scalar theory: resumming the N8LO perturbative mass gap
Abstract We apply the optimized perturbation theory (OPT) to resum the perturbative series describing the mass gap of the bidimensional ϕ4 theory in the ℤ2 symmetric phase. Already at NLO (one loop)
Four-loop screened perturbation theory
We study the thermodynamics of massless {phi}{sup 4}-theory using screened perturbation theory. In this method, the perturbative expansion is reorganized by adding and subtracting a thermal mass term
A brief overview of hard-thermal-loop perturbation theory
The poor convergence of quantum field theory at finite temperature has been one of the main obstacles in the practical applications of thermal QCD for decades. Here we briefly review the progress of
Thermal Gauge Field Theories
The theoretical framework for describing ultrarelativistically hot and dense matter is quantum field theory at finite temperature and density. At sufficiently high temperatures and densities,


Perturbative QCD at High Temperature
Recent developments of perturbation theory at finite temperature based on effective field theory methods are reviewed. These methods allow the contributions from the different scales to be separated

An effective field theory approach is developed for calculating the thermodynamic properties of a field theory at high temperature $T$ and weak coupling and applies it to a massless scalar field with a $\Phi^4$ interaction.
Symmetry Behavior at Finite Temperature
Spontaneous symmetry breaking at finite temperature is studied. We show that for the class of theories discussed, symmetry is restored above a critical temperature βc−1. We determine βc by a
The Weak Electroweak Phase Transition
Abstract We present a detailed analysis of the phase transition in the standard model at finite temperature. Using an improved perturbation theory, where plasma masses are determined from a set of
Three-loop free energy for high-temperature QED and QCD with fermions.

This work analytically computed the free energy density for gauge theories, with fermions, at high temperature and zero chemical potential, which requires the evaluation of three-loop diagrams, and extends the previous result for pure gauge QCD.
Pressure in thermal scalar field theory to three-loop order.
In scalar field theory, with a {ital g}{sup 2}{phi}{sup 4} interaction, at temperature T, the complete contribution to the pressure to order is computed, which involves a three-loop thermal diagram.
