Abstract
We analyse discretization effects in the calculation of high-temperature meson spectral functions at
nonzero momentum and fermion mass on the lattice. We do so by comparing continuum and lattice spec-
tral functions in the infinite temperature limit. Complete analytical results for the spectral densities in the
continuum are presented, along with simple expressions for spectral functions obtained with Wilson and
staggered fermions on anisotropic lattices. We comment on the use of local and point split currents.

1. Introduction
Motivated by the experimental progress in relativistic heavy ion collisions and the recreation
of the quark­gluon plasma, several questions have received substantial attention in the past few
