Gravity on an extended brane in sixdimensional warped flux compactifications
Abstract
We study linearized gravity in a sixdimensional EinsteinMaxwell model of warped braneworlds, where the extra dimensions are compactified by a magnetic flux. It is difficult to construct a strict codimension two braneworld with matter sources other than pure tension. To overcome this problem we replace the codimension two defect by an extended brane, with one spatial dimension compactified on a KaluzaKlein circle. Our background is composed of a warped, axisymmetric bulk and one or two branes. We find that weak gravity sourced by arbitrary matter on the brane(s) is described by a fourdimensional scalartensor theory. We show, however, that the scalar mode is suppressed at long distances and hence fourdimensional Einstein gravity is reproduced on the brane.

We consider a sixdimensional spacetime, in which two of the dimensions are compactified by a flux. Matter can be localized on a codimension one brane coupled to the bulk gauge field and wrapped around an axis of symmetry of the internal space. By studying the linear perturbations around this background, we show that the gravitational interaction between sources on the brane is described by Einstein 4D gravity at large distances. Our model provides a consistent setup for the study of gravity in the rugby (or football) compactification, without having to deal with the complications of a deltalike, codimension two brane.more »

Low energy effective theory on a regularized brane in sixdimensional flux compactifications
Conical brane singularities in sixdimensional flux compactification models can be resolved by introducing cylindrical codimensionone branes with regular caps instead of 3branes (a la KaluzaKlein braneworlds with fluxes). In this paper, we consider such a regularized braneworld with axial symmetry in sixdimensional EinsteinMaxwell theory. We derive a low energy effective theory on the regularized brane by employing the gradient expansion approach, and show that standard fourdimensional Einstein gravity is recovered at low energies. Our effective equations extend to the nonlinear gravity regime, implying that conventional cosmology can be reproduced in the regularized braneworld. 
Extended objects from warped compactifications of M theory
We study the massive spectrum of fully wrapped branes in warped Mtheory compactifications, including regimes where these states are parametrically lighter than the Planck scale or string scale. We show that many such states behave classically as extended objects in the noncompact directions in the sense that their mass grows with their size as measured along the Poincare slices making up the noncompact dimensions. On the other hand, these states can be quantized in a nontrivial regime: in particular, their spectrum of excitations in a limited regime can be obtained by a warped KaluzaKlein reduction from ten dimensions. We brieflymore » 
Cosmological evolution of regularized branes in 6D warped flux compactifications
We study the cosmological evolution of extended branes in 6D warped flux compactification models. The branes are endowed with the three ordinary spatial dimensions, which are assumed to be homogeneous and isotropic, as well as an internal extra dimension compactified on a circle. We embed these codimension 1 branes in a static bulk 6D spacetime, whose geometry is a solution of 6D EinsteinMaxwell or EinsteinMaxwelldilaton theories, corresponding to a warped flux compactification. The brane matter consists of a complex scalar field which is coupled to the bulk U(1) gauge field. In both models, we show that there is critical pointmore » 
Braneinduced gravity from asymmetric warped compactification
We show that braneinduced gravity can be realized as a low energy effective theory of brane worlds with asymmetric warped compactification. A selfaccelerating universe without cosmological constant on the brane can be realized in a model where one side of the bulk has finite volume, but the other side has infinite volume. The spin2 perturbations for braneinduced gravity and asymmetric warped compactification models have the same spectrum at low energies. For a de Sitter brane, the spin2 graviton has mass in the range 0<m{sup 2}{<=}2H{sup 2}, with m{sup 2}=2H{sup 2} in the selfaccelerating universe.
