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

Pressure of QCD at finite temperatures and chemical potentials
We compute the perturbative expansion of the pressure of hot QCD to order g(6)ln g in the presence of finite quark chemical potentials. In this process we evaluate all two- and three-loop vacuumExpand

Dimensionally reduced QCD at high temperature
Finite-temperature QCD at high temperature T exhibits three different momentum scales T,gT and g2T. Naive perturbation theory in a small gauge coupling g does not work beyond leading order. In theExpand

Pressure of the standard model at high temperatures
We compute the pressure of the standard model at high temperatures in the symmetric phase to three loops, or to O(g 5 ) in all coupling constants. We find that the terms of the perturbative expansionExpand
Asymptotic thermal quark masses and the entropy of QCD in the large-N{sub f} limit
