Correspondence between loopinspired and braneworld cosmology
Abstract
Braneworld scenarios are motivated by string/Mtheory and can be characterized by the way in which they modify the conventional Friedmann equations of Einstein gravity. An alternative approach to quantum gravity, however, is the loop quantum cosmology program. In the semiclassical limit, the cosmic dynamics in this scenario can also be described by a set of modified Friedmann equations. We demonstrate that a dynamical correspondence can be established between these two paradigms at the level of the effective field equations. This allows qualitatively similar features between the two approaches to be compared and contrasted as well as providing a framework for viewing braneworld scenarios in terms of constrained Hamiltonian systems. As concrete examples of this correspondence, we illustrate the relationships between different cosmological backgrounds representing scaling solutions.

The discrepancy between the results of covariant and noncovariant oneloop calculations for higherspin fields in quantum cosmology is analyzed. A detailed modebymode study of perturbative quantum gravity about a flat Euclidean background bounded by two concentric threespheres, including nonphysical degrees of freedom and ghost modes, leads to oneloop amplitudes in agreement with the covariant SchwingerDeWitt method. This calculation provides the generalization of a previous analysis of fermionic fields and electromagnetic fields at oneloop about flat Euclidean backgrounds admitting a welldefined 3+1 decomposition.

A dynamic correspondence between BoseEinstein condensates and FriedmannLemaitreRobertsonWalker and Bianchi I cosmology with a cosmological constant
In some interesting work of James Lidsey, the dynamics of FriedmannLemaitreRobertsonWalker (FLRW) cosmology with positive curvature and a perfect fluid matter source is shown to be modeled in terms of a timedependent, harmonically trapped BoseEinstein condensate. In the present work, we extend this dynamic correspondence to both FLRW and Bianchi I cosmologies in arbitrary dimension, especially when a cosmological constant is present. 
Bulk matter fields on a GRSinspired braneworld
In this paper we investigate the localization and mass spectra of bulk matter fields on a GergoryRubakovSibiryakovinspired braneworld. In this braneworld model, there are one thick brane located at the origin of the extra dimension and two thin branes at two sides. For spin 1/2 fermions coupled with the background scalar φ via η Ψbar φ{sup p}Ψ with p a positive odd integer, the zero mode of lefthand fermions can be localized on the thick brane for finite distance of the two thin branes, and there exist some massive bound modes and resonance modes. The resonances correspond to the quasilocalizedmore » 
Beyond the low energy approximation in braneworld cosmology
We develop a fourdimensional effective theory for RandallSundrum models which allows us to calculate longwavelength adiabatic perturbations in a regime where the {rho}{sup 2} terms characteristic of braneworld cosmology are significant. This extends previous work employing the moduli space approximation. We extend the treatment of the system to include higher derivative corrections present in the context of braneworld cosmology. The developed formalism allows us to study perturbations beyond the general longwavelength, slowvelocity regime to which the usual moduli approximation is restricted. It enables us to extend the study to a wide range of braneworld cosmology models for which the extramore » 
Gravitational baryogenesis in GaussBonnet braneworld cosmology
The mechanism of gravitational baryogenesis, based on the CPTviolating gravitational interaction between the derivative of the Ricci scalar curvature and the baryonnumber current, is investigated in the context of the GaussBonnet braneworld cosmology. We study the constraints on the fundamental fivedimensional gravity scale, the effective scale of Bviolation and the decoupling temperature, for the above mechanism to generate an acceptable baryon asymmetry during the radiationdominated era. The scenario of gravitational leptogenesis, where the leptonnumber violating interactions are associated with the neutrino mass seesaw operator, is also considered.
