Abstract.Using the Hamilton-Jacobi formalism, we study extra force and extra mass in a recently introduced non-compact Kaluza-Klein cosmological model. We examine the inertial 4D mass m0 of the inflaton field on a 4D FRW bulk in two examples. We find that m0 has a geometrical origin and antigravitational effects on a non-inertial 4D bulk should be a consequence of the motion of the fifth coordinate with respect to the 4D bulk. 

A scalar field governed cosmological model from noncompact Kaluza-Klein theory

This paper is a review of a recently introduced cosmological model from a noncompact Kaluza-Klein theory for a single scalar field minimally coupled to gravity. We obtain that the 4D scalar potential

Inflaton field governed universe from NKK theory of gravity: stochastic approach

Abstract.We study a non-perturbative single field (inflaton) governed cosmological model from a 5D non-compact Kaluza-Klein (NKK) theory of gravity. The inflaton field fluctuations are estimated for

Aspects of (4 + 4)-Kaluza–Klein type theory

We develop a type of Kaluza–Klein formalism in (4 + 4)-dimensions. In the framework of this formalism, we obtain a new kind of Schwarzschild metric solution that, via Kruskal–Szequeres, can be


The classical confinement condition of test particles to a brane universe in the absence of non-gravitational forces is transformed using the Hamilton–Jacobi formalism. The transformed condition

The bang of a white hole in the early universe from a 6D vacuum state: origin of astrophysical spectrum

Using a previously introduced model in which the expansion of the universe is driven by a single scalar field subject to gravitational attraction induced by a white hole during the expansion (from a

Modified Saez–Ballester scalar–tensor theory from 5D space-time

In this paper, we bring together the five-dimensional Saez–Ballester (SB) scalar–tensor theory (Saez and Ballester 1986 Phys. Lett. 113A 9) and the induced-matter-theory (IMT) setting (Wesson and



Cosmological models in a Kaluza-Klein theory with variable rest mass

A general class of solutions is obtained for a homogeneous, spatially isotropic five-dimensional (5D) Kaluza-Klein theory with variable rest mass. These solutions generalize in the algebraic and

Origin of FRW cosmology in slow-roll inflationfrom non-compact Kaluza-Klein theory

Abstract.Using a recently introduced formalism we discuss slow-roll inflation from Kaluza-Klein theory without the cylinder condition. In particular, some examples corresponding to polynomic and

Dynamics in Kaluza-Klein Gravity and a Fifth Force

Using a novel coordinate system, we rederive the field equations and equa tions of motion for 5-dimensional relativity in the general case where the metric can depend on all 5 coordinates (i.e.,

The evolution of the universe from non-compact Kaluza-Klein theory

Abstract.We develop a 5D mechanism, inspired by Campbell’s theorem, to explain the (neutral scalar field governed) evolution of the universe from an initially inflationary expansion that has a change

Invariant Definition of Rest Mass and Dynamics of Particles in 4D from Bulk Geodesics in Brane-World and Non-Compact Kaluza Klein Theories

In the Randall–Sundrum brane-world scenario and other non-compact Kaluza–Klein theories, the motion of test particles is higher-dimensional in nature. In other words, all test particles travel on

Particle Physics and Cosmology

This book is an introduction to particle physics and cosmology. It discusses the interaction of these two fundamental branches of physics, and considers recent advances beyond the standard models.

Introduction to Supersymmetry and Supergravity

Over the past years, we have witnessed a dramatic increase in “public interest” in supersymmetry and super gravity. This interest cannot as yet be based on any solid experimental facts, but it has
