Consistency of Higher Derivative Gravity in the Brane Background

  title={Consistency of Higher Derivative Gravity in the Brane Background},
  author={Ishwaree P. Neupane},
We consider the theory of higher derivative gravity with non-factorizable RandallSundrum type space-time and obtain the metric solutions which characterize the p-brane world-volume as a curved or planar defect embedded in the higher dimensions. We consider the string inspired effective actions of the dilatonic Gauss-Bonnet type in the brane background and show its consistency with the RS brane-world scenario and the conformal weights of the dilaton couplings in the string theory with the… CONTINUE READING
