AB - We consider spatial correlation lengths xi for various QCD light quark bilinears, at temperatures above a few hundred MeV. Some of the correlation lengths (such as that related to baryon density) coincide with what has been measured earlier on from glueball-like states; others do not couple to glueballs, and have a well-known perturbative leading-order expression as well as a computable next-to-leading-order correction. We determine the latter following analogies with the NRQCD effective theory, used for the study of heavy quarkonia at zero temperature: we find (for the quenched case) xi(-1) = 2piT + 0.1408g(2)T, and compare with lattice results. One manifestation of U-A(1) symmetry non-restoration is also pointed out.
