Holography and Compactification

  title={Holography and Compactification},
  author={Herman L. Verlinde},
Following a recent suggestion by Randall and Sundrum, we consider string compactification scenarios in which a compact slice of AdS-space arises as a subspace of the compactifica-tion manifold. A specific example is provided by the type II orientifold equivalent to type I theory on (orbifolds of) T 6 , upon taking into account the gravitational backreaction of the D3-branes localized inside the T 6. The conformal factor of the four-dimensional metric depends exponentially on one of the compact… CONTINUE READING
