Higher Loop Effects on Unification via Kaluza-Klein Thresholds

Abstract

We discuss higher loop corrections to gauge coupling renormalization in the context of gauge coupling unification via Kaluza-Klein thresholds. We show that in the case of N = 1 supersymmetric compactifications the one-loop threshold contributions are dominant, while the higher loop correction are subleading. This is due to the fact that at heavy Kaluza… (More)
