Generalized uncertainty principle parameter from quantum corrections to the Newtonian potential

We compute for the first time the deformation parameter of the generalized uncertainty principle (GUP), by using a technique based on the leading quantum corrections to the Newtonian potential. The calculation gives, to first order, an unambiguous, specific numerical result. The physical meaning of this value is discussed, and compared with analogous previous results, and with known bounds on the GUP deformation parameter.
