@article{Tolley2006ScalingST, title={Scaling solutions to 6D gauged chiral supergravity}, author={Andrew J. Tolley and Cliff P. Burgess and Claudia de Rham and D. Hoover}, journal={New Journal of Physics}, year={2006}, volume={8}, pages={324 - 324} }

We construct explicitly time-dependent exact solutions to the field equations of six-dimensional (6D) gauged chiral supergravity, compactified to 4D in the presence of up to two three-branes situated within the extra dimensions. The solutions we find are scaling solutions, and are plausibly attractors which represent the late-time evolution of a broad class of initial conditions. By matching their near-brane boundary conditions to physical brane properties, we argue that these solutions…
