abstract = {We calculate the pressure in QCD with two and three light quarks on a lattice of size 16(3) X 4 using tree level improved gauge and fermion actions. We argue that, for temperatures T greater than or similar to 2T(c), systematic effects due to the finite lattice cut-off and non-vanishing quark masses are below 15% in this calculation and give an estimate for the continuum-extrapolated pressure in QCD with massless quarks. We find that the flavour dependence of the pressure is dominated by that of the Stefan-Boltzmann constant. Furthermore we perform a calculation of the pressure using two light (m(u,d)/T = 0.4) and one heavier quark (m(s)/T = 1). In this case the pressure is reduced with respect to that of 3-flavour QCD. This effect is stronger than expected from the mass dependence of an ideal Fermi gas. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.},
