# The Pressure of hot QCD up to g6 ln(1/g)

@article{Kajantie2003ThePO, title={The Pressure of hot QCD up to g6 ln(1/g)}, author={Keijo Kajantie and Mikko Laine and Kari Rummukainen and Y. Schroder}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2003}, volume={67}, pages={105008} }

The free energy density, or pressure, of QCD has at high temperatures an expansion in the coupling constant g, known so far up to order g^5. We compute here the last contribution which can be determined perturbatively, g^6 ln(1/g), by summing together results for the 4-loop vacuum energy densities of two different three-dimensional effective field theories. We also demonstrate that the inclusion of the new perturbative g^6 ln(1/g) terms, once they are summed together with the so far unknown… Expand
