We present a unified description of the high temperature phase of QCD, the so-called quark-gluon plasma, in a regime where the effective gauge coupling g is sufficiently small to allow for weak coupling calculations. The main focuss is the construction of the effective theory for the collective excitations which develop at a typical scale gT , which is well separated from the typical energy of single particle excitations which is the temperature T . We show that the short wavelength thermal… CONTINUE READING
