    Abstract: This paper proposes a concrete model of nonuniversal gaugino masses on the basis of higher-dimensional supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories compactified on a magnetized factorizable torus, and we estimate the gauge coupling constants and gaugino masses in the model. In the magnetized toroidal compactifications, the four-dimensional effective action can be obtained analytically identifying its dependence on moduli fields, where the magnetic fluxes are able to yield the flavor structure of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM). The obtained gauge kinetic functions contains multi moduli fields and their dependence is nonuniversal for the three gauge fields. The nonuniversal gauge kinetic functions can lead to nonuniversal gaugino masses at a certain high energy scale (e.g. compactification scale). Our numerical analysis of them shows that, particular ratios of gaugino masses, which were found to enhance the Higgs boson mass and lead to “natural supersymmetry” in the MSSM, can be realized in our model, while the gauge couplings are unified as is achieved in the MSSM.
