# A self-tuning mechanism in (3 + p)d gravity-scalar theory

@article{Park2007ASM, title={A self-tuning mechanism in (3 + p)d gravity-scalar theory}, author={Eun Kyung Park and Pyung Seong Kwon}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2007}, volume={2007}, pages={051-051} }

We present a new type of self-tuning mechanism for (3 + p)d brane world models in the framework of gravity-scalar theory. This new type of self-tuning mechanism exhibits a remarkable feature. In the limit gs→0, gs being the string coupling, the geometry of bulk spacetime remains virtually unchanged by an introduction of the Standard Model(SM)-brane, and consequently it is virtually unaffected by quantum fluctuations of SM fields with support on the SM-brane. Such a feature can be obtained by…

We argue that in (p+3)d string theory the existence of NS-NS type p-brane with negative tension is essential to obtain background geometry R2 or R2/Zn on the transverse dimensions, and the usual…
