# INEVITABILITY OF SPACE–TIME SINGULARITIES IN THE CANONICAL METRIC

@article{Leon2001INEVITABILITYOS, title={INEVITABILITY OF SPACE–TIME SINGULARITIES IN THE CANONICAL METRIC}, author={Jaime Ponce de Leon}, journal={Modern Physics Letters A}, year={2001}, volume={16}, pages={1405-1411} }

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

- Physics
- 2001

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

- Physics, Mathematics
- 2008

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

- Physics
- 2002

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

- Physics
- 2005

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

- Physics
- 2003

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

- Physics
- 2002

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

- Physics
- 2006

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

- Physics
- 2012

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

- Physics
- 2000

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

- Physics

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

- Physics

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…

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…
