We compute the perturbative expansion of the pressure of hot QCD to order gln g in the presence of finite quark chemical potentials. In this process we evaluate all twoand three-loop vacuum diagrams of the theory at arbitrary T and μ and then use these results to analytically verify the outcome of an old order g calculation of Freedman and McLerran for the zero-temperature pressure. The results for the pressure and the different quark number susceptibilities at high T are compared with recent… CONTINUE READING
