Title: Gauge Dependence of Gravitational Correction to Running of Gauge Couplings

Abstract

Recently an interesting idea has been put forward by Robinson and Wilczek that the incorporation of quantized gravity in the framework of Abelian and non-Abelian gauge theories results in a correction to the running of gauge coupling and, as a consequence, increase the grand unification scale and asymptotic freedom. In this Letter it is shown by explicit calculations that this correction depends on the choice of gauge.
