# A NO-GO THEOREM FOR de SITTER COMPACTIFICATIONS?

@article{Dass2002ANT, title={A NO-GO THEOREM FOR de SITTER COMPACTIFICATIONS?}, author={N. D. Hari Dass}, journal={Modern Physics Letters A}, year={2002}, volume={17}, pages={1001-1011} }

A general framework for studying compactifications in supergravity and string theories was introduced by Candelas, Horowitz, Strominger and Witten1. This was further generalised to take into account the warp factor by de Wit, Smit and Hari Dass2. Though the prime focus of the latter was to find solutions with nontrivial warp factors (shown not to exist under a variety of circumstances), it was shown there that de Sitter compactifications are generically disfavoured (see also3). In this note we…

We consider the cosmological models for the higher dimensional space-time which includes the curvatures of our space as well as the curvatures of the internal space. We find that the condition for…

We discuss some general properties of quantum gravity in De Sitter space. It has been argued that the Hilbert space is of finite dimension. This suggests a macroscopic argument that General…

Conventional wisdom states that Newton's force law implies only four noncompact dimensions. We demonstrate that this is not necessarily true in the presence of a nonfactorizable background geometry.…
