Title

Superfield calculation of loop contribution in extra dimensional theories

Abstract

"Superfields provide a compact description of supersymmetry representations. Loop corrections with superfield formalism are simpler and much more manageable than calculation in terms of component fields. In this paper we calculate the contribution of the Kaluza-Klein states, associated with extra dimensions, to the renormalization group beta function. These Kaluza-Klein particles circulate in the virtual loop, hence affecting the overall corrections at any order. We obtain the one-loop correction, which checks with the result previously obtained using the more laborious component field method. In addition, we calculate the two-loop correction coming from chiral KK states"--Abstract, leaf iii.
