We present precise three-body calculations for the spectrum of kaonic deuterium with a realistic antikaon-nucleon interaction. Thanks to the precise measurement of kaonic hydrogen, it is now possible to construct realistic interactions which reproduce the whole set of experimental data in the threshold region. Employing such realistic interactions, the energy of the three-body system of kaonic deuterium is determined with the accuracy of eV, by expanding its wave function with a large number of correlated Gaussian basis functions. The level shift and width of the 1S state are found to be 670 eV and 1016 eV, respectively. The improved Deser formulas work reasonably well to estimate the shift and width of kaonic hydrogen, but their application to kaonic deuterium does not give an accurate estimation. It is shown that the result is sensitive to the I = 1 component of the interaction, which will be further constrained in future experiments.
