@article{Zhang2007LOCALIZATIONOF, title={LOCALIZATION OF FERMIONIC FIELDS ON BRANEWORLDS WITH BULK TACHYON MATTER}, author={Xin-hui Zhang and Yu-Xiao Liu and Yi-shi Duan}, journal={Modern Physics Letters A}, year={2007}, volume={23}, pages={2093-2101} }

Recently, Pal and Skar in Ref. 33 proposed a mechanism to arise the warped braneworld models from bulk tachyon matter, which are endowed with a thin brane and a thick brane. In this framework, we investigate localization of fermionic fields on these branes. As in the 1/2-spin case, the field can be localized on both the thin and thick branes with inclusion of scalar background. In the 3/2-spin extension, the general supergravity action coupled to chiral supermultiplets is considered to produce…
