I review recent results in lattice gauge theory which pertain to the physics of high temperature QCD and quark matter. Topics covered include: the transition temperature in the pure gauge theory, scaling and finite temperature behavior in QCD with quarks, problems with non-zero chemical potential, the Debye length in the high temperature plasma, and quantities relevant to thermodynamics and hydrodynamics in relativistic heavy ion collisions.
