Calculations of the quantum correction to the DC conductance of a cylindrical nanowire due to the quantum interference are presented. The real space Cooperon equation is solved for cylindrical geometry. Using this approach, it is shown that the quantum correction to the conductance in the weak localisation regime depends not only on the dephasing processes but also on geometrical parameters of the nanowire.
