# Dark energy and stabilization of extra dimensions

@article{Greene2007DarkEA, title={Dark energy and stabilization of extra dimensions}, author={Brian Randolph Greene and Janna Levin}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2007}, volume={2007}, pages={096-096} }

We discuss the role Casimir energies may play in addressing issues of moduli stabilization and dark energy. In particular, we examine a (non-supersymmetric) brane world scenario with toroidal extra dimensions in which Casimir energies of bulk fields generate a stabilizing potential for the toroidal volume while driving accelerated expansion in the non-compact directions. We speculate that such a scenario might establish a link between asymmetric topology and asymmetric geometry; that is…
