This is a colloquium style pedagogical introduction to the paradigm of large extra dimensions. This talk was delivered at various universities including UCLA (1999), Technion (2000), DESY (2001), University of Pisa (2001), UBC (2002), NYU (2002), University of Nantes (2003), Bern University (2003), Max-Planck Institute/Munich University (2003), University of Padova (2003), University of Minnesota (2005). 
Large extra dimensions
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 weakerExpand
Generalized Uncertainty Principle in the Presence of Extra Dimensions
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 withExpand
The landscape and the multiverse: What’s the problem?
TLDR
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. Expand
Extra Dimensions and their Ultraviolet Completion
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 LHCExpand
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 theExpand
Exploring variations in the gauge sector of a six-dimensional flavour model
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 variationsExpand
Non-Pauli transitions from spacetime noncommutativity.
TLDR
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. Expand

TLDR
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. Expand
The Structure of Matter in Spacetime from the Substructure of Time
The nature of the change in perspective that accompanies the proposal of a unified physical theory deriving from the single dimension of time is elaborated. On expressing a temporal interval in aExpand
Gravity and Large Extra Dimensions
The idea that quantum gravity can be realized at the TeV scale is extremely attractive to theorists and experimentalists alike. This proposal leads to extra spacial dimensions large compared to theExpand

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 countExpand
TASI Lectures on Extra Dimensions and Branes
This is a pedagogical introduction into theories with branes and extra dimensions. We first discuss the construction of such models from an effective field theory point of view, and then discussExpand
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.Expand
A Large mass hierarchy from a small extra dimension
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 arisesExpand
Hierarchies without symmetries from extra dimensions
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. WeExpand

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-Expand
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 fieldsExpand
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 aExpand
The Hierarchy problem and new dimensions at a millimeter
Abstract We propose a new framework for solving the hierarchy problem which does not rely on either supersymmetry or technicolor. In this framework, the gravitational and gauge interactions becomeExpand
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 pictureExpand
