In science:

This integral is dependent on the external momentum k , and in order to calculate the screening mass consistently we must compute it at k = im.
On Effective Field Theories at Finite Temperature
Secondly, imagine that we would compute subleading contributions to the screening mass coming from the diagrams in the Yukawa sector.
On Effective Field Theories at Finite Temperature
Our calculations reproduce previous results obtained by Zhai and Kastening , and independently by Corian`o and Parwani for the free energy, as well as the screening mass first computed by Blaizot et al .
On Effective Field Theories at Finite Temperature
Since the relation between the fields in the underlying theory and the effective theory can be viewed as a field redefinition, and since the screening mass is a long-distance quantity, one can use the effective theory to compute it.
On Effective Field Theories at Finite Temperature
