# Extra Dimensions and Warped Geometries

@article{Randall2002ExtraDA, title={Extra Dimensions and Warped Geometries}, author={Lisa Randall}, journal={Science}, year={2002}, volume={296}, pages={1422 - 1427} }

The field of extra dimensions, as well as the hypothesized sizes of extra dimensions, have grown by leaps and bounds over the past few years. I summarize the new results and the reasons for the recent activity in this field. These include the observations that extra dimensions can be macroscopic or even infinite in size. Another new development is the application of extra dimensions to the determination of particle physics parameters and properties.

Black holes and the existence of extra dimensions

- 2006

The addition of extra dimensions to our four dimensional universe, which is suggested in many theories, has drastic consequences for all physical behaviour in nature. By evaluating compactification… Expand

It is shown that the possible existence of more spatial dimensions than the usual three can be created computationally, and this accelerates the search for the low-energy arrangements of atoms. Expand

Complementary constraints on brane cosmology

The acceleration of the expansion of the universe represents one of the major challenges to our current understanding of fundamental physics. In principle, to explain this phenomenon, at least two… Expand

Testing Newtonian gravity at the nanometer distance scale using the iso-electronic effect

Abstract We describe a new experimental and theoretical effort to search for new forces and extra spatial dimensions over nanometer distance scales. Since the Casimir force produces a large… Expand

Can extra dimensional effects allow wormholes without exotic matter

- Physics

Abstract We explore the existence of Lorentzian wormholes in the context of an effective on-brane, scalar-tensor theory of gravity. In such theories, the timelike convergence condition, which is… Expand

Cosmology and the Door to Other Dimensions and Universes

One should not limit our space travel optio ns to consider only approaches dictated by the conventional wisdom. There is nothing more intriguing in cosmological conjectures as the concepts of time… Expand

Black-body radiation with extra dimensions

The general form of the Stefan–Boltzmann law for the energy density of black-body radiation is generalized to a spacetime with extra dimensions using standard kinetic and thermodynamic arguments.… Expand

Modulus stabilization with bulk fields

We propose a mechanism for stabilizing the size of the extra dimension in the Randall-Sundrum scenario. The potential for the modulus field that sets the size of the fifth dimension is generated by a… Expand

A Large mass hierarchy from a small extra dimension

We propose a new higher-dimensional mechanism for solving the hierarchy problem. The weak scale is generated from the Planck scale through an exponential hierarchy. However, this exponential arises… Expand

Unification and hierarchy from 5D anti-de Sitter space.

- 2002

P perturbative high scale unification and a solution to the hierarchy problem are possible with extra dimensions in the context of the warped geometry of 5D anti-de Sitter space because the couplings for bulk gauge bosons run logarithmically below the AdS(5) curvature scale. Expand

Hierarchies without symmetries from extra dimensions

It is commonly thought that small couplings in a low-energy theory, such as those needed for the fermion mass hierarchy or proton stability, must originate from symmetries in a high-energy theory. We… Expand

We recently proposed a solution to the hierarchy problem not relying on low-energy supersymmetry or technicolor. Instead, the problem is nullified by bringing quantum gravity down to the TeV scale.… Expand

An Alternative to compactification
