For a weakly coupled quantum eld at high temperature the classical approximation o ers a possibility to
gain insight into nonperturbative real-time dynamics. I use this to present a nonperturbative approach to the
computation of spectral functions in real time. Results are shown for a scalar eld in 2 + 1 dimensions.
1. In thermal equilibrium spectral functions
contain all available information since other real-
(and imaginary-) time correlators are related to
them via the KMS condition. A nonperturbative
computation of spectral functions seems therefore
desirable; nonperturbative in order to:
