Recent progress in intersecting D‐brane models

The aim of this article is to review some recent progress in the field of intersecting D‐brane models. This includes the construction of chiral, semi‐realistic flux compactifications, the systematic

04 Holography and Brane-bulk Energy Exchange

The five-dimensional description of generalized Randall-Sundrum cosmology is mapped via holography to a generalization of the Starobinsky model. This provides a holographic dual description of the

Seeing through the String Landscape - a String Hunter's Companion in Particle Physics and Cosmology

In this article we will overview several aspects of the string landscape, namely intersecting D-brane models and their statistics, possible model independent LHC signatures of intersecting brane

The five-dimensional description of generalized Randall-Sundrum cosmology is mapped via holography to a generalization of the Starobinsky model. This provides a holographic dual description of the

Towards realistic standard model from D-brane configurations

Effective low energy models arising in the context of D-brane configurations with standard model (SM) gauge symmetry extended by several gauged Abelian factors are discussed. The models are

Seeing through the string landscape—a string hunter's companion in particle physics and cosmology

In this article we will overview several aspects of the string landscape, namely intersecting D-brane models and their statistics, possible model independent LHC signatures of intersecting brane

The Hubble parameters in the D-brane models

We consider the DBI action for the D-branes with the dynamic embeddings in the background produced by p-branes. For the D-brane with the special topology we obtain two Hublle parameters on this

Brane cosmology and the self-tuning of the cosmological constant

The cosmology of branes undergoing the self-tuning mechanism of the cosmological constant is considered. The equations and matching conditions are derived in several coordinate systems, and an

Localized gravity in non-compact superstring models

We discuss a string-theory-derived mechanism for localized gravity, which produces a deviation from Newton's law of gravitation at cosmological distances. This mechanism can be realized for general

Progress in D‐brane model building

The state of the art in D‐brane model building is briefly reviewed, focusing on recent achievements in the construction of D = 4 𝒩 = 1 type II string vacua with semi‐realistic gauge sectors. Such

Lectures on string/brane cosmology

An overview of some cosmological aspects of string theory is presented. Recent developments are emphasized, especially the attempts to derive inflation or alternatives to inflation from the dynamics

Type 0 Brane Inflation from Mirage Cosmology

We consider a three-dimensional brane-universe moving in a Type 0 String background. The motion induces on the brane a cosmological evolution which, for some range of the parameters, exhibits an

Intersecting brane worlds

We review the construction of chiral four-dimensional compactifications of type IIA string theory with intersecting D6-branes. Such models lead to four-dimensional theories with non-Abelian gauge

Tachyonic inflation in the braneworld scenario

We consider cosmological inflation driven by the rolling tachyon in the context of the braneworld scenario. We show that sufficient inflation consistent with the observational constraints can be

Brane-World Cosmology, Bulk Scalars and Perturbations

We investigate aspects of cosmology in brane world theories with a bulk scalar field. We concentrate on a recent model motivated from supergravity in singular spaces. After discussing the background

Brane world cosmology with Gauss-Bonnet interaction

We study a Randall-Sundrum model modified by a Gauss-Bonnet interaction term. We consider, in particular, a Friedmann-Robertson-Walker metric on the brane and analyze the resulting cosmological

Inflating p-branes

We look for solutions in Einstein gravity corresponding to inflating braneworlds of arbitrary dimension and co-dimension. These solutions correspond to isolated sources (no long range fields). Using

I-brane inflow and anomalous couplings on D-branes

We show that the anomalous couplings of D-brane gauge and gravitational fields to Ramond - Ramond tensor potentials can be deduced by a simple anomaly inflow argument applied to intersecting D-branes
