We compute radiative corrections in five- and six-dimensional field theories, using winding modes in mixed momentum-coordinate space. This method provides a simple way of finding UV divergencies, finite corrections and localized terms when the space is compactified on orbifolds. As an application we compute the finite piece of scalar masses, the logarithmic contributions to the couplings and the effect of localized parallel and perpendicular kinetic terms. We apply it to get a two loop effective potential that can stabilize large extra dimensions. © 2004 The American Physical Society.
