We compute the one-loop renormalization of the Planck mass for type II string theories compactified to four dimensions on symmetric orbifolds that preserve = 2 supersymmetry. Depending on the orbifold, the effect can be as large as to compete with the standard tree-level value.

From maximal to minimal supersymmetry in string loop amplitudes
A bstractWe calculate one-loop string amplitudes of open and closed strings with N = 1, 2, 4 supersymmetry in four and six dimensions, by compactification on Calabi-Yau and K3 orbifolds. In

One loop corrections to coupling constants in String Effective Field Theory
In the framework of a recently proposed method for computing exactly string amplitudes regularized in the infra-red, I determine the one-loop correlators for auxiliary fields in the symmetric

We present in detail the procedure for calculating the heterotic one-loop effective action. We focus on gravitational and gauge couplings. We show that the two-derivative couplings of the
