Abstract
A classically scale-invariant 6d analog of the 4d Yang-Mills theory is the 4-derivative $ (\nabla F)^2 + F^3$ gauge theory with two independent couplings. Motivated by a search for a perturbatively conformal but possibly non-unitary 6d models we compute the one-loop $\beta$-functions in this theory. A systematic way of doing this using the background field method requires the expression for the $b_6$ Seeley-DeWitt coefficient for a generic 4-derivative operator. It was previously unknown and we derive it here. As an application, we also compute the one-loop $\beta$-function in the (1,0) supersymmetric $ (\nabla F)^2$ 6d gauge theory constructed in hep-th/0505082.
