The ADD scenario proposes that our world exists on a three-dimensional slice through a higher-dimensional universe. It tries to solve the hierarchyproblem (the question why gravity is so much weaker…

Generalized Uncertainty Principle in the Presence of Extra Dimensions

- Physics
- 2011

We argue that in the generalized uncertainty principle (GUP) model, the parameter ?0 whose square root, multiplied by Planck length ?p, approximates the minimum measurable distance, varies with…

The landscape and the multiverse: What’s the problem?

- Philosophy
- 2021

It is argued first that the landscape problem relies on dubious assumptions and does not motivate a multiverse hypothesis, and then it is shown that theMultiverse hypothesis is scientifically legitimate and could be coupled to string theory for other empirical reasons.

Extra Dimensions and their Ultraviolet Completion

- Physics, Geology

Large extra dimensions are one of the constructions addressing the hierarchy problem of the Standard Model. Their main theoretical and phenomenological challenge is that already predicting LHC…

Unification through Generalised Proper Time: The Elementary Construction of the Theory

- Physics
- 2021

Unification based upon the generalisation of proper time is proposed as a comprehensive framework to account for the fundamental structure of matter, in a manner contrasting with the more familiar…

Exploring variations in the gauge sector of a six-dimensional flavour model

- Physics
- 2014

In the context of extra-dimensional models that describe three families of fermions (including their masses and mixing in terms of a single 6-dimensional family), we explore possible variations…

Shadow Extra Dimension & Fuzzy Branes via Exorcized Infinite Derivative Field Theory

- Physics
- 2021

Particle physics models with extra dimensions of space (EDS's) and branes are very interesting extensions beyond the standard model (BSM), allowing to shed new light on electroweak and flavor…

Non-Pauli transitions from spacetime noncommutativity.

- PhysicsPhysical review letters
- 2010

It is argued that the Earth's rotation and movements in the cosmos are "sudden" events to Pauli-forbidden processes that induce (tw) bosonic components in state vectors of identical spinorial particles that suggest a new energy scale beyond the Planck scale.

Cosmology and Matter-Induced Branes

- PhysicsSymmetry
- 2020

The relation between the main cosmological parameters—the Planck mass and the Cosmological constants—and a metric of extra space is discussed and the ways to solve the fine-tuning problem and the hierarchy problem are analyzed.

How to Make the Physical Parameters Small

We study the evolution of the physical parameter values defined at the sub-planckian energies to values at low energies. The Wilson action is the basis of the research. The presence of the compact…

PHENOMENOLOGY OF EXTRA DIMENSIONS

The most exciting development in physics beyond the Standard Model in the past ten years is the phenomenology of extra dimensions. A cursory glance at the SLAC Spires “all time high” citation count…

An Alternative to compactification

Conventional wisdom states that Newton's force law implies only four noncompact dimensions. We demonstrate that this is not necessarily true in the presence of a nonfactorizable background geometry.…

A Large mass hierarchy from a small extra dimension

- Physics
- 1999

We propose a new higher-dimensional mechanism for solving the hierarchy problem. The weak scale is generated from the Planck scale through an exponential hierarchy. However, this exponential arises…

Hierarchies without symmetries from extra dimensions

- Physics

It is commonly thought that small couplings in a low-energy theory, such as those needed for the fermion mass hierarchy or proton stability, must originate from symmetries in a high-energy theory. We…

In the first part of this paper I review the construction of the realistic free fermionic models, as well as current attempts to study aspects of these models in the nonperturbative framework of M-…

CKM pattern from localized generations in extra dimension

We revisit the issue of the quark masses and mixing angles in the framework of large extra dimension. We consider three identical standard model families resulting from higher-dimensional fields…

Bounds on Universal Extra Dimensions

We show that the bound from the electroweak data on the size of extra dimensions accessible to all the standard model elds is rather loose. These \universal" extra dimensions could have a…

Neutrino masses from large extra dimensions

Recently it was proposed that the standard model (SM) degrees of freedom reside on a (3 + 1)-dimensional wall or ''3-brane'' embedded in a higher-dimensional spacetime. Furthermore, in this picture…
