I will discuss the current state of perturbation theory of the cold and dense QCD thermodynamics. Alongside, I explain a method of handling the infrared degrees of freedom of the theory using Hard Thermal Loop approximations, suitable for the computation of the non-analytic terms of the pressure. By making use of this framework, I will present the computation of a new term, the leading, "doubly logarithmic", contribution to the NNNLO T=0 pressure.
