# Radion stabilization with(out) Gauss-Bonnet interactions and inflation

@article{Konikowska2006RadionSW, title={Radion stabilization with(out) Gauss-Bonnet interactions and inflation}, author={Dominika Konikowska and Marek Olechowski and M. G. Schmidt}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2006}, volume={73}, pages={105018} }

Radion stabilization is analyzed in 5-dimensional models with branes in the presence of Gauss-Bonnet interactions. The Goldberger-Wise mechanism is considered for static and inflating backgrounds. The necessary and sufficient conditions for stability are given for the static case. The influence of the Gauss-Bonnet term on the radion mass and the interbrane distance is analyzed and illustrated by numerical examples. The interplay between the radion stabilization and the cosmological constant…
