Cosmological spacetimes from negative tension brane backgrounds


We identify a time-dependent class of metrics with potential applications to cosmology, which emerge from negative-tension branes. The cosmology is based on a general class of solutions to Einstein-dilaton-Maxwell theory, presented in hep-th/0106120. We argue that solutions with hyperbolic or planar symmetry describe the gravitational interactions of a pair… (More)
