Abstract:
Over the past decade, Finite Temperature Quantum Field Theories have benefitted from impressive developments, while an increasing number of intriguing points were made. Some of them are presented here, recent and older, in a non exhaustive list.

Abstract:
We construct a quantum thermal field theory for scalar particles in the case of infinite statistics. The extension is provided by working out the Fock space realization of a "quantum algebra", and by identifying the hamiltonian as the energy operator. We examine the perturbative behavior of this theory and in particular the possible extension of the KLN theorem, and argue that it appears as a stable structure in a quantum field theory context.

Abstract:
It is argued that for hot quantum fields, the necessary effective perturbation theories may be based on a resummation procedure which, contrarily to the zero temperature case, differs substantially from the one ordinarily in use. Important differences show up in the infrared sector of hot quantum field theories.

Abstract:
After pointing out the historical avatar at the origin of a would be twin or clock paradox, we argue that, at least on a local scale, the (re-qualified) paradox is but a necessary consequence of the sole principle of causality.

Abstract:
Removal of the quenched approximation in the mechanism which produced an analytic estimate of quark-binding potentials, along with a reasonable conjecture of the color structure of the nucleon formed by such a binding potential, is shown to generate an effective, nucleon scattering and binding potential. The mass-scale factor on the order of the pion mass, previously introduced to define transverse imprecision of quark coordinates, is again used, while the strength of the potential is proportional to the square of a renormalized QCD coupling constant. The potential so derived does not include corrections due to spin, angular momentum, nucleon structure, and electroweak interactions; rather, it is qualitative in nature, showing how Nuclear Physics can arise from fundamental QCD.

Abstract:
We consider a scalar massless quantum field model, at finite temperature $T$, both renormalizable and asymptotically free. Focussing on the singular structure of the effective perturbation theory about the light cone, several new insights are put forth, regarding the interplay between hard thermal loop resummation and the overall compensation of collinear singularities.

Abstract:
It is argued that in hot gauge field theories, "Hard Thermal Loops" leading order calculations call for a definite sequence of angular averages and discontinuity (or Imaginary part prescription) operations, and run otherwise into incorrect results. The ten years old collinear singularity problem of hot $QCD$, provides a striking illustration of that fate.

Abstract:
It is shown that three series of diagrams entering the calculation of some hot $QCD$ process, are mass (or collinear) singularity free, indeed. This generalizes a result which was recently established up to the third non trivial order of (thermal) Perturbation Theory.

Abstract:
On the basis of a "Punctual" Equivalence Principle of the general relativity context, we consider spacetimes with measurements of conformally invariant physical properties. Then, applying the Pfaff theory for PDE to a particular conformally equivariant system of differential equations, we make explicit the dependence of any kind of function describing a "spacetime deployment", on n(n+1) parametrizing functions, denoting by n the spacetime dimension. These functions, appearing in a linear differential Spencer sequence and determining gauge fields of spacetime deformations relatively to a "substrat spacetime", can be consistently ascribed to unified electromagnetic and gravitational fields, at any spacetime dimensions n greater or equal to 4.

Abstract:
Discussions on the Langevin Twins 'paradox' are most often based on a "triangular" diagram which outlines the twins spacetime travels. It won't be our way, avoiding what we think to be a problem at the basis of numerous controversies. Our approach relies on a fundamentally different Equivalence Principle, namely the so-called "Punctual Equivalence Principle", from which we think that a very conformal aspect proceeds. We present a resolution of this paradox in the framework of the so-called "scale gravity". This resolution hinges on a clear determinism of the Twins proper times, in some definite situations, and a fundamental under-determinism in some other particular ones, the physical discrimination of which being achieved out of a precise mathematical description of conformal geometry. Moreover, we find that the time discrepancy between the twins, could somehow be at the root expression of the second fundamental law of thermodynamics.
