This is a short review on basics of the use of the Wilson line to break gauge symmetry in theories with compact extra dimensions. We show how the computation of the one-loop effective field theory leads to a finite result. We then explain the realization of this breaking and the effective potential computation in an open string theory framework with D-branes. To cite this article: K. Benakli, C. R. Physique 8 (2007).

Ceci est une revue courte sur des aspects basiques de lʼutilisation des lignes de Wilson pour briser la symétrie de jauge dans les théories avec des dimensions supplémentaires compactes. Nous montrons comment le calcul de la théorie effective de champs à une boucle mène à un résultat fini. Puis, nous illustrons alors la réalisation de cette brisure de symétrie de jauge et le calcul potentiel effectif dans un cadre de théorie de cordes ouvertes se propageant sur des D-branes. Pour citer cet article : K. Benakli, C. R. Physique 8 (2007).
