Abstract: We present a complete calculation of the gluon damping rate at zero momentum to leading order in the QCD coupling constant g. All terms of leading order in g are included by the resummation of an in6nite subset of higher-loop diagrams. At zero momentum, the damping rates for transverse gluons and plasmons are equal: the result is y=+0.264013g2T, where T is the temperature. The sign is positive, which implies that the quark-gluon plasma is perturbatively stable.Over the last decade, there has been much controv…
