We consider a U(1) gauge field theory with fermion fields (or with scalar fields) that live in a space with {delta} extra compact dimensions, and we compute the fermion-induced quantum energy in the presence of a constant magnetic field, which is directed towards the x{sub 3} axis. Our motivation is to study the effect of extra dimensions on the asymptotic behavior of the quantum energy in the strong field limit (eB>>M{sup 2}), where M=1/R. We see that the weak logarithmic growth of the quantum…

Vacuum polarization for compactified QED 4 + 1 in a magnetic flux background

We evaluate one-loop effects for QED{sub 4+1} compactified to R{sup 4}xS{sup 1} in a nontrivial vacuum for the gauge field such that a nonvanishing magnetic flux is encircled along the extra

Primordial Magnetic Fields and Their Development

In this talk I discuss the non-linear development of magnetic fields in the early universe. I very briefly mention a number of particle physics mechanisms for generating magnetic fields in the early

A WAY TO BREAK SUPERSYMMETRY

I study the spontaneous breakdown of supersymmetry when higher-dimensional Yang-Mills or the type-I $SO(32)$ string theory are compactified on magnetized tori. Because of the universal gyromagnetic

TeV-scale GUTs

In this talk, we summarize our recent proposal for lowering the scale of grand unification to the TeV range though the appearance of extra spacetime dimensions. Particular emphasis is placed on the

Cosmological constraints from extra-dimension induced domain walls

TeV size extra dimensions introduce domain walls. Such walls are inconsistent with CMB anisotropies. Either inflationary dynamics washes them out, or the reheating temperature is lower then the
