We consider a five dimensional AdS warped spacetime in presence of a massive scalar field in the bulk. The scalar field potential fulfills the requirement of modulus stabilization even when the effect of backreaction of the stabilizing field is taken into account. In such a scenario, we explore the role of backreaction on the localization of bulk fermions which in turn determines the effective radion-fermion coupling on the brane. Our result reveals that both the chiral modes of the zeroth…

Fermion localization in higher curvature and scalar–tensor theories of gravity

It is well known that, in a braneworld model, the localization of fermions on a lower dimensional submanifold (say a TeV 3-brane) is governed by the gravity in the bulk, which also determines the

Radion tunneling in modified theories of gravity

We consider a five dimensional warped spacetime where the bulk geometry is governed by higher curvature F(R) gravity. In this model, we determine the modulus potential originating from the scalar

Fermion and graviton in Dirac–Born–Infeld braneworld models

In this paper, we study the braneworld models with non-standard kinetic term of Dirac–Born–Infeld (DBI) type in two case which are (I) in usual gravity and (II) in f ( T ) gravity. In each of these

Introduction to Extra Dimensions and Thick Braneworlds

In this review, we give a brief introduction on the aspects of some extra dimension models and the five-dimensional thick brane models in extended theories of gravity. First, we briey introduce the



Goldberger-Wise variations: Stabilizing brane models with a bulk scalar

One of the features that make the scenario so interesting is the presence of a single extra–dimension, that allows for a detailed – and not too complicated – analysis of the model and of its possible modifications.
