This is a progress report on the calculation of the effective potential for the Polyakov loop in $SU(N)$ pure gauge theory beyond two-loop order. We introduce a new approach using the Poisson resummation formula to compute sum-integrals with the holonomy. We show partial results for the free energy at order $g^3$ and $g^4$.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
