We consider a version of Kaluza–Klein theory where the cylinder condition is not imposed. The metric is allowed to have explicit dependence on the "extra" coordinate(s). This is the usual scenario in brane-world and space-time-matter theories. We extend the usual discussion by considering five-dimensional metrics with off-diagonal terms. We replace the condition of cylindricity by the requirement that physics in four-dimensional space-time should remain invariant under changes of coordinates in… 

Mass and Charge in Brane-World and Non-Compact Kaluza-Klein Theories in 5 Dim

In classical Kaluza-Klein theory, with compactified extra dimensions and without scalar field, the rest mass as well as the electric charge of test particles are constants of motion. We show that in

THE EQUIVALENCE PRINCIPLE IN KALUZA–KLEIN GRAVITY

In four-dimensional general relativity the space–time outside of an isolated spherical star is described by a unique line element, which is the Schwarzschild metric. As a consequence, the

Invariant Definition of Rest Mass and Dynamics of Particles in 4D from Bulk Geodesics in Brane-World and Non-Compact Kaluza Klein Theories

In the Randall–Sundrum brane-world scenario and other non-compact Kaluza–Klein theories, the motion of test particles is higher-dimensional in nature. In other words, all test particles travel on

Extra force from an extra dimension. Comparison between brane theory, STM and other approaches

We investigate the question of how an observer in 4D perceives the five-dimensional geodesic motion. We consider the interpretation of null and non-null bulk geodesics in the context of brane theory,

Self-similar cosmologies in 5D: spatially flat anisotropic models

In the context of theories of Kaluza-Klein type, with a large extra dimension, we study self-similar cosmological models in 5D that are homogeneous, anisotropic and spatially flat. The "ladder" to go

Exterior spacetime for stellar models in five-dimensional Kaluza?Klein gravity

It is well known that Birkhoff's theorem is no longer valid in theories with more than four dimensions. Thus, in these theories the effective four-dimensional picture allows the existence of

REINVENTING SPACETIME ON A DYNAMICAL HYPERSURFACE

In braneworld models, Spacetime-Matter and other Kaluza–Klein theories, our spacetime is devised as a four-dimensional hypersurface orthogonal to the extra dimension in a five-dimensional bulk. We

The Principle of least action for test particles in a four-dimensional spacetime embedded in 5D

It is well known that, in the five-dimensional scenario of braneworld and space–time-mass theories, geodesic motion in 5D is observed to be non-geodesic in 4D. Usually, the discussion is purely

FLRW UNIVERSES FROM "WAVE-LIKE" COSMOLOGIES IN 5D

We consider the evolution of a 4D-universe embedded in a five-dimensional (bulk) world with a large extra dimension and a cosmological constant. The cosmology in 5D possesses "wave-like" character in

The physical properties of Kaluza--Klein solitons

We take the interpretation of Kaluza--Klein theory where curvature in 4+1 dimensions induces effective matter in 3+1 dimensions, and calculate the physical properties of solitons. These are exact

Cosmological models in a Kaluza-Klein theory with variable rest mass

A general class of solutions is obtained for a homogeneous, spatially isotropic five-dimensional (5D) Kaluza-Klein theory with variable rest mass. These solutions generalize in the algebraic and

In Randall-Sundrum-type brane-world cosmologies, the dynamical equations on the three-brane differ from the general relativity equations by terms that carry the effects of embedding and of the free

Some of the quantum properties of Kaluza-Klein theories are studied. The classical features of these theories are reviewed, and the quantization of the gravitational field in an arbitrary number of

We analyze a class of 5D non-compact warped-product spaces characterized by metrics that depend on the extra coordinate via a conformal factor. Our model is closely related to the so-called canonical

The global net of relationships between the nonlinear gravity theories, scalar-tensor theories, and general relativity is clarified, showing that in a sense these are ``canonically conjugated'' to each other.

We discuss possible observational manifestations of static, spherically symmetric solutions of a class of multidimensional theories of gravity, which includes the low energy limits of supergravities
