#### Abstract

We study an effective theory of QCD at high density in detail, including the finite temperature effects and the leading order correction in $1/\mu$ expansion. We investigate the Cooper pair gap equation and find that the color-flavor locking phase is energetically preferred at high density. We also find the color-superconducting phase transition occurs in dense quark matter when the chemical potential is larger than $250\pm 100~{\rm MeV}$ and the temperature is lower than 0.57 times the Cooper pair gap in the leading order in the hard-dense-loop approximation. The quark-neutrino four-Fermi coupling and the quark-axion coupling receive significant corrections in dense quark matter.
