Localized Gravity and Higher Curvature Terms

Abstract

We consider localization of gravity in smooth domain wall solutions of gravity coupled to a scalar field with a generic potential in the presence of the Gauss-Bonnet term. We discuss conditions on the scalar potential such that domain wall solutions are non-singular. We point out that the presence of the Gauss-Bonnet term does not allow flat solutions with… (More)
