A brane evolving in the background of a charged AdS black hole displays in general a bouncing behavior with a smooth transition from a contracting to an expanding phase. We examine in detail the conditions and consequences of this behavior in various cases. For a cosmological-constant-dominated brane, we obtain a singularity-free, inflationary era which is… (More)
