  author={P. Apostolopoulos and J. Carot},
The existence of a Conformal Vector Field (CVF) is studied in the important class of warped manifolds of arbitrary dimension generalizing in this way the corresponding results of the four dimensional geometries. As a concrete example we apply the geometric results in the case of brane-world scenarios when the bulk geometry admits a hypersurface orthogonal Killing Vector Field (KVF) and is filled with a perfect fluid matter content.

An Alternative to compactification
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.Expand
Non-conventional cosmology from a brane-universe
Abstract We consider “brane universes”, where energy density is confined to four-dimensional hypersurfaces (three-branes) whereas one extra compact dimension is felt by gravity only. We show that theExpand
