Abstract: We compute the free energy in the presence of a chemical potential coupled to a conserved charge in the effective scalar field theory to third order for asymmetric volumes in general dimensions, using dimensional regularization. We also compute the mass gap in a finite box with periodic boundary conditions. The results can be used in together with measurements of the observables in small volumes through simulations of quantum chromodynamics with -massless quarks, to estimate combinations of low-energy constants of chiral perturbation theory.
