Dynamics of scalartensor cosmology from a RandallSundrum twobrane model
Abstract
We consider a RandallSundrum twobrane cosmological model in the low energy gradient expansion approximation by Kanno and Soda. It is a scalartensor theory with a specific coupling function and a specific potential. Upon introducing the FriedmannLemaitreRobertsonWalkerFLRW metric and perfect fluid matter on both branes in the Jordan frame, the effective dynamical equation for the Abrane (our Universe) scale factor decouples from the scalar field and Bbrane matter leaving only a nonvanishing integration constant (the dark radiation term). We find exact solutions for the Abrane scale factor for four types of matter: cosmological constant, radiation, dust, and cosmological constant plus radiation. We perform a complementary analysis of the dynamics of the scalar field (radion) using phase space methods and examine convergence towards the limit of general relativity. In particular, we find that radion stabilizes at a certain finite value for suitable negative matter densities on the Bbrane. Observational constraints from solar system experiments (PPN) and primordial nucleosynthesis (BBN) are also briefly discussed.

In the RandallSundrum two Dbrane system, we derive the gravitational theory on the branes. It is turned out from the consistency that one Dbrane has the negative tension brane under RandallSundrum tuning and both gauge fields on the brane are related by scale transformation through the bulk R(Ramond)R/NS(NeveuSchwarz)NS fields. As with the single Dbrane case, the gauge field which is supposed to be localized on the brane does not couple to the gravity on the branes.

Gravity in the RandallSundrum two Dbrane model
We analyze the RandallSundrum two Dbrane model by linear perturbation and then consider the linearized gravity on the D brane. The qualitative contribution from the KaluzaKlein modes of gauge fields to the coupling to the gravity on the brane will be addressed. As a consequence, the gauge fields localized on the brane are shown not to contribute to the gravity on the brane at large distances. Although the coupling between gauge fields and gravity appears in the next order, the ordinary coupling cannot be realized. 
7D RandallSundrum cosmology, branebulk energy exchange, and holography
We discuss the cosmological implications and the holographic dual theory of the 7D RandallSundrum gravitational setup. Adding generic matter in the bulk on the 7D gravity side, we study the cosmological evolution inferred by the nonvanishing value of the branebulk energy exchange parameter. This analysis is achieved in detail for specific assumptions on the internal space evolution, including analytical considerations and numerical results. The dual theory is then constructed, making use of the holographic renormalization procedure. The resulting renormalized 6D conformal field theory is anomalous and coupled to 6D gravity plus higher order corrections. The critical point analysis on themore » 
Second RandallSundrum brane world scenario with a nonminimally coupled bulk scalar field
In our previous work of [K. Farakos and P. Pasipoularides, Phys. Lett. B 621, 224 (2005).] we studied the stability of the RS2 model with a nonminimally coupled bulk scalar field {phi}, and we found that in appropriate regions of {xi} the standard RS2 vacuum becomes unstable. The question that arises is whether there exists other new static stable solutions where the system can relax. In this work, by solving numerically the Einstein equations with the appropriate boundary conditions on the brane, we find that depending on the value of the nonminimal coupling {xi}, this model possesses three classes ofmore » 
Brane world corrections to the scalar vacuum force in the RandallSundrum IIp scenario
Vacuum force is an interesting low energy test for brane worlds due to its dependence on field's modes and its role in submillimeter gravity experiments. In this work, we generalize a previous model example: the scalar field vacuum force between two parallel plates lying in the brane of a RandallSundrum scenario extended by p compact dimensions (RSIIp). Upon use of Green's function technique, for the massless scalar field, the 4D force is obtained from a zero mode while leading order corrections due to the noncompact dimension turn out attractive and depend on the separation between plates as l{sup (6+p)}.
