We discuss the question of whether the existence of singularities is an intrinsic property of 4D space–time. Our hypothesis is that singularities in 4D are induced by the separation of space–time from the other dimensions. We examine this hypothesis in the context of the so-called canonical or warp metrics in 5D. These metrics are popular because they provide a clean separation between the extra dimension and space–time. We show that the space–time section, in these metrics, inevitably becomes…

EQUIVALENCE BETWEEN SPACE TIME MATTER AND BRANE-WORLD THEORIES

We study the relationship between space–time–matter (STM) and brane theories. These two theories look very different at first sight, and have different motivation for the introduction of a large

Self-similar cosmologies in 5D: our universe as a topological separation from an empty 5D Minkowski space

In this paper we find the most general self-similar, homogeneous and isotropic, Ricci-flat cosmologies in 5D. These cosmologies show a number of interesting features: (i) the field equations allow a

Mass and Charge in Brane-World and Non-Compact Kaluza-Klein Theories in 5 Dim

In classical Kaluza-Klein theory, with compactified extra dimensions and without scalar field, the rest mass as well as the electric charge of test particles are constants of motion. We show that in

Wesson’s Induced Matter Theory with a Weylian Bulk

The foundations of Wesson’s induced matter theory are analyzed. It is shown that the empty—without matter—5-dimensional bulk must be regarded as a Weylian space rather than as a Riemannian one.

FLRW UNIVERSES FROM "WAVE-LIKE" COSMOLOGIES IN 5D

We consider the evolution of a 4D-universe embedded in a five-dimensional (bulk) world with a large extra dimension and a cosmological constant. The cosmology in 5D possesses "wave-like" character in

VARIATION OF G, Λ(4) AND VACUUM ENERGY FROM BRANE-WORLD MODELS

In brane-world theory in five dimensions, the bulk metric is usually written in Gaussian coordinates, where g4μ = 0 and g44 = -1. However, the choice g44 = -1 is an external condition, not a

An Analytic model for the transition from decelerated to accelerated cosmic expansion

We consider the scenario where our observable universe is devised as a dynamical four-dimensional hypersurface embedded in a five-dimensional bulk space–time, with a large extra dimension, which is

Induced Matter Theory of gravity from a Weitzenböck 5D vacuum and pre-big bang collapse of the universe

We extend the Induced Matter Theory of gravity (IMT) to 5D curved spacetimes by using the Weitzenböck representation of connections on a 5D curved spacetime. In this representation the 5D curvature

Cosmological dynamics on the brane

In Randall-Sundrum-type brane-world cosmologies, the dynamical equations on the three-brane differ from the general relativity equations by terms that carry the effects of embedding and of the free

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

Extra Force in Brane Worlds

By carefully analyzing the geodesic motion of a test particle in the bulk of brane worlds, we identify an extra force which is recognized in spacetime of one lower dimensions as a non-gravitational

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Capture of bulk geodesics by brane-world black holes

In this letter we study bulk time-like geodesics in the presence of a brane-world black hole, where the brane-world is a two-brane moving in a (3+1)-dimensional asymptotically adS4 spacetime. We show
