The theoretical tools required to construct models in warped extra dimensions are presented. This includes how to localise zero modes in the warped bulk and how to obtain the holographic interpretation using the AdS/CFT correspondence. Several models formulated in warped space are then discussed including nonsupersymmetric and supersymmetric theories as well as their dual interpretation. Finally it is shown how grand unification occurs in warped models.

Warped phenomenology in the holographic basis
The holographic basis is a novel tool which allows for a quantitative description of elementary/composite mixing in holographic duals of warped models. We apply this tool to bulk fermions in a sliceExpand
Warped Models in String Theory
Warped models, originating with the ideas of Randall and Sundrum, provide a fascinating extension of the standard model with interesting consequences for the LHC. We investigate in detail how stringExpand
TASI Lectures on a Holographic View of Beyond the Standard Model Physics
We provide an introduction to the physics of a warped extra dimension and the AdS/CFT correspondence. An AdS/CFT dictionary is given which leads to a 4D holographic view of the 5th dimension. With aExpand
Holography, Padé approximants and deconstruction
We investigate the relation between holographic calculations in 5D and the Migdal approach to correlation functions in large-Nc theories. The latter employs Pade approximation to extrapolateExpand
Tools for deconstructing gauge theories in AdS5
We employ analytical methods to study deconstruction of 5D gauge theories in the AdS5 background. We demonstrate that using the so-called q-Bessel functions allows a quantitative analysis of theExpand
Holography for general gauge mediation
A bstractWe construct a holographic model of spontaneous supersymmetry breaking in analogy to AdS/QCD models. Integrating out the bulk theory one obtains an entirely four dimensional effective actionExpand
Holographic mixing quantified
We compute the precise elementary/composite field content of mass eigenstates in holographic duals of warped models in a slice of AdS{sub 5}. This is accomplished by decomposing the bulk fields notExpand
Open String Wavefunctions in Warped Compactifications
We analyze the wavefunctions for open strings in warped compactifications, and compute the warped Kahler potential for the light modes of a probe D-brane. This analysis not only applies to theExpand
Electroweak observables in a general 5D background
Warped extra dimensions provide a new playground to study electroweak brea-king and the nature of the higgs field. In this paper we reanalyze the electroweak observables in theories with one extraExpand
Holographic pseudo-Goldstone boson
Pseudo-Goldstone bosons in 4D strongly coupled theories have a dual description in terms of 5D gauge theories in warped backgrounds. We introduce systematic methods of computing the pseudo-GoldstoneExpand


Holography for fermions
The holographic interpretation is a useful tool to describe 5D field theories in a 4D language. In particular it allows one to relate 5D AdS theories with 4D CFTs. We elaborate on the 5D/4DExpand
Randall-Sundrum models and the regularized AdS/CFT correspondence
It has been proposed that Randall-Sundrum models can be holographically described by a regularized (broken) conformal field theory. We analyze the foundations of this duality using a regularizedExpand
Comments on the holographic picture of the Randall-Sundrum model
We discuss some issues about the holographic interpretation of the compact Randall-Sundrum model, which is conjectured to be dual to a 4d field theory with non-linearly realized conformal symmetry.Expand
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
Quantum field theory and unification in AdS5
We consider gauge bosons in the bulk of AdS5 in a two-brane theory that addresses the hierarchy problem. We demonstrate that one can do a perturbative calculation above the IR scale associated withExpand
Partly supersymmetric grand unification
It is shown how grand unification can occur in models which are partly supersymmetric. The particle states which are composite do not contribute to the running of gauge couplings above theExpand
Flavor violation and warped geometry
Extra dimensions have interesting consequences for flavor physics. We consider a setup where the standard model fermions and gauge fields reside in the bulk of a warped extra dimension. FermionExpand
Anti-de Sitter space and holography
Recently, it has been proposed by Maldacena that large $N$ limits of certain conformal field theories in $d$ dimensions can be described in terms of supergravity (and string theory) on the product ofExpand
ICTP Lectures on Large Extra Dimensions
I give a brief and elementary introduction to braneworld models with large extra dimensions. Three conceptually distinct scenarios are outlined: (i) Large compact extra dimensions; (ii) Warped extraExpand

We present a grand unified theory (GUT) that has GUT fields with masses of the order of a TeV, but at the same time preserves (at the one-loop level) the success of gauge-coupling unification of theExpand
