We study some cosmological consequences of the five dimensional, two brane Randall-Sundrum scenario. We integrate over the extra dimensions and in four dimensions the action reduces to that of scalar tensor gravity. The radius of the compact extra dimension is taken to be time this http URL is shown that the radius of the extra dimension rapidly approaches a constant nonzero separation of branes. A radion dominated universe cannot undergo accelerated expansion in the absence of a this http URL…

Harnessing Dark Energy in Five-dimensional Brans-Dicke Universe
In trying to explain the present accelerated expansion of the universe in the light of a five-dimensional Brans-Dicke theory, it is found that the fifth dimension itself here acts as a source of dark
