 OFFSET 0,5 COMMENTS The rationals A(n) defined below appear in the expansion of the one-loop effective potential V1(y) for the thermal phi^4 model. See the Dolan-Jackiw, Kapusta and Quir/'os references. The expansion variable is y:=(m^2(phi))/(2*pi*k*T)^2 with Boltzmann's constant k, the (absolute) temperature T and m^2(phi):= m^2 + (lambda/2) phi^2 if the coupling constant is lambda/4! and the mass is m. The relevant expansion of part of the thermal one-loop effective potential is ((pi^2)*((k*T)^4)/2)*sum(A(n)*Zeta(2*n+1)*(-1)^(n+1)*y^(n+2),n=1..infty) with the Riemann zeta function. The expansion parameter y is given above. See the W. Lang link for more details. REFERENCES J. I. Kapusta, Finite-temperature field theory, Cambridge University Press, 1989. M.
