We consider spherically symmetric matter configurations on a four dimensional "brane" embedded in a five dimensional $Z_2$-symmetric "bulk". We write the junction conditions between the interior and exterior of these "stars", treat a couple of static examples in order to point out the differences with ordinary four dimensional Einstein gravity, consider briefly a collapse situation and conclude with the importance of a global view including asymptotic and regularity conditions in the bulk. 

Constraints on the braneworld from compact stars

According to the braneworld idea, ordinary matter is confined on a three-dimensional space (brane) that is embedded in a higher-dimensional space-time where gravity propagates. In this work, after

On-brane data for braneworld stars

Stellar structure in braneworlds is markedly different from that in ordinary general relativity. As an indispensable first step towards a more general analysis, we completely solve the ``on brane''

Nonuniform Braneworld Stars: AN Exact Solution

In this paper the first exact interior solution to Einstein's field equations for a static and nonuniform braneworld star with local and nonlocal bulk terms is presented. It is shown that the bulk

The Schwarzschild's Braneworld Solution

In the context of the Randall–Sundrum braneworld, the minimal geometric deformation approach, which has been successfully used to generate exact interior solutions to Einstein's field equations for

The low energy problem on astrophysics braneworld

Considering an anisotropic and non uniform stellar distribution in the context of braneworld, an exact analytic solution to Einstein’s field equations is found, however it is not possible to regain

Black Hole Solutions in Braneworlds with Induced Gravity

An analysis of a spherically symmetric braneworld configuration is performed when the intrinsic curvature scalar is included in the bulk action. In the case when the electric part of the Weyl tensor

Brane-world stars with a solid crust and vacuum exterior

The minimal geometric deformation approach is employed to show the existence of brane-world stellar distributions with a vacuum Schwarzschild exterior, thus without energy leaking from the exterior

Friedmann branes with variable tension

We introduce braneworlds with nonconstant tension, strengthening the analogy with fluid membranes, which exhibit a temperature dependence according to the empirical law established by Eotvos. This

Strong brane gravity and the radion at low energies

For the two-brane Randall–Sundrum model, we calculate the bulk geometry for strong gravity, in the low matter density regime, for slowly varying matter sources. This is relevant for astrophysical or



Gravity on branes

We consider the four dimensional discontinuity generated by two identical pieces of a five dimensional space pasted along their edge (that is a “brane” in a “Z2-symmetric” “bulk”). Using a four plus

Gravitational Collapse on the Brane

We investigate how braneworld gravity affects gravitational collapse and black hole formation by studying Oppenheimer-Snyder-like collapse on a Randall-Sundrum type brane. Without making any

Linearized gravity in the Randall-Sundrum scenario

In the literature about the Randall-Sundrum scenario, one finds, on the one hand, that there exist (small) corrections to Newton's law of gravity on the brane and, on the other, that the exact (and

Collapsing sphere on the brane radiates

Stars in the braneworld

We show that, in a Randall-Sundrum II type braneworld, the vacuum exterior of a spherical star is not in general a Schwarzschild spacetime, but has radiative-type stresses induced by five-dimensional
