## Abstract

Using the formalism developed in [1] we discuss finite temperature quantum field theory in the high temperature regime T >> m_T where m_T represents a generic finite temperature mass in the theory. In particular we consider λϕ⁴ theory in four dimensions showing perturbatively that it has a non-trivial fixed point at finite temperature, the relevant anomalous dimensions near the second-order phase transition being three-dimensional ones. We emphasize the importance of having renormalization schemes and a renormalization group (RG) equation that can explicitly take into account the fact that the degrees of freedom of a theory may be qualitatively different at different scales.
