This is an appendix to Y. Ihara’s paper [Prog. Math. 253, 407–451 (2006; Zbl 1185.11069)]. Let \(K\) be a number field with discriminant \(d_K\) and Euler-Kronecker constant \(\gamma_K\). Under the generalized Riemann hypothesis the author proves that \[ \liminf_K\frac{\gamma_K}{\log \sqrt{|d_K|}} \geq -0.26049... . \] He produces examples of class-field towers , showing that \[ \liminf_K\frac{\gamma_K}{\log \sqrt{|d_K|}} \leq -0.17849... . \]
