Consistent perturbation theory for thermodynamical quantities in strongly type-II superconductors in a magnetic field at low temperatures is developed. It is complementary to the existing expansion valid at high temperatures. Magnetization and specific heat are calculated to two-loop order and compare well with existing Monte Carlo simulations, other theories, and experiments.
