We present a novel inflationary scenario in theories with low scale (TeV) quantum gravity, in which the standard model particles are localized on the branes whereas gravity propagates in the bulk of large extra dimensions. This inflationary scenario is natural in the brane world picture. In the lowest energy state, a number of branes sit on top of each other (or at an orientifold plane), so the vacuum energy cancels out. In the cosmological setting, some of the branes"start out"relatively… Expand
Brane-world cosmology and inflation
There has been substantial progress in brane-world cosmology in recent years. Much attention has been particularly paid to the second Randall-Sundrum (RS2) scenario in which a single positive-tensionExpand
The Inflationary Brane-Antibrane Universe
We show how the motion through the extra dimensions of a gas of branes and antibranes can, under certain circumstances, produce an era of inflation as seen by observers trapped on a 3-brane, with theExpand
Brane inflation and reheating
We study inflation and reheating in a brane world model derived from type IIA string theory. This particular set-up is based on a model of string mediated supersymmetry breaking. The inflaton is oneExpand
The dynamics of brane-world cosmological models
Brane-world cosmology is motivated by recent developments in string/M-theory and offers a new perspective on the hierarchy problem. In the brane-world scenario, our Universe is a four-dimensionalExpand
Inflationary scenarios from branes at angles
We describe a simple mechanism that can lead to inflation within string-based brane-world scenarios. The idea is to start from a supersymmetric configuration with two parallel static Dp-branes, andExpand
Energy transfer in multi field inflation and cosmological perturbations
In cascade inflation and some other string inflation models, collisions of mobile branes with other branes or orbifold planes occur and lead to interesting cosmological signatures. The fundamentalExpand

Inflation on the brane with vanishing gravity
Many existing models of brane inflation suffer from a steep irreducible gravitational2 potential between the branes that causes inflation to end too early. Inspired by the fact that point masses inExpand
Cosmology of the tachyon in brane inflation
In certain implementations of the brane inflationary paradigm, the exit from inflation occurs when the branes annihilate through tachyon condensation. We investigate various cosmological effectsExpand
Brane-World Gravity
TLDR
This review analyzes the geometry, dynamics and perturbations of simple brane-world models for cosmology and astrophysics, mainly focusing on warped 5-dimensional brane -worlds based on the Randall-Sundrum models. Expand
