We discuss the cosmological implications and the holographic dual theory of the 7D Randall-Sundrum gravitational setup. Adding generic matter in the bulk on the 7D gravity side, we study the cosmological evolution inferred by the nonvanishing value of the brane-bulk energy exchange parameter. This analysis is achieved in detail for specific assumptions on the internal space evolution, including analytical considerations and numerical results. The dual theory is then constructed, making use of…

Effective cosmological equations of induced f(R) gravity

We expand the study of generalized brane cosmologies by allowing for an $f(\tilde{\cal R})$ gravity term on the brane, with $\tilde{\cal R}$ the curvature scalar derived from the induced metric. We

Warping the Universal Extra Dimensions

We develop the necessary ingredients for the construction of realistic models with warped universal extra dimensions. Our investigations are based on the seven-dimensional (7D) spacetime AdS{sub



Holography and brane–bulk energy exchange

Holography relates the low energy regime of the five-dimensional description of generalized Randall–Sundrum cosmology to a four-dimensional theory. The four-dimensional theory describes observable

Cosmological evolution in compactified Horava-Witten theory induced by matter on the branes

Abstract. The combined Einstein equations and scalar equation of motion in the Horava-Witten scenario of the strongly coupled heterotic string compactified on a Calabi-Yau manifold are solved in the

Holographic description of AdS cosmologies

To gain insight in the quantum nature of the big bang, we study the dual field theory description of asymptotically anti-de Sitter solutions of supergravity that have cosmological singularities. The

Supergravity, D-brane probes and thermal super Yang-Mills: a comparison

A D3-brane probe in the context of AdS/CFT correspondence at finite temperature is considered. The supergravity predictions for the physical effective couplings of the world-volume gauge theory of

Brane cosmological evolution with a general bulk matter configuration

Using a fully covariant treatment for the description of the bulk geometry, we study the brane cosmological evolution in the presence of a smooth bulk matter distribution. We focus on the case of a

Holography and phenomenology

We examine various aspects of the conjectured duality between warped AdS5 geometries with boundary branes and strongly coupled (broken) conformal field theories coupled to dynamical gravity. We also

Self-accelerating Warped Braneworlds

Braneworld models with induced gravity have the potential to replace dark energy as the explanation for the current accelerating expansion of the Universe. The original model of Dvali, Gabadadze, and
