Coupled bulk and brane fields about a de Sitter brane
Abstract
We consider the evolution of a bulk scalar field in antide Sitter (AdS) spacetime linearly coupled to a scalar field on a de Sitter boundary brane. We present results of a spectral analysis of the system, and find that the model can exhibit both bound and continuum resonant modes. We find that zero, one, or two bound states may exist, depending upon the masses of the brane and bulk fields relative to the Hubble length and the AdS curvature scale and the coupling strength. In all cases, we find a critical coupling above which there exists a tachyonic bound state. We show how the 5dimensional spectral results can be interpreted in terms of a 4dimensional effective theory for the bound states. We find excellent agreement between our analytic results and the results of a new numerical code developed to model the evolution of bulk fields coupled to degrees of freedom on a moving brane. This code can be used to model the behavior of braneworld cosmological perturbations in scenarios for which no analytic results are known.

We investigate the dynamics of a boundary field coupled to a bulk field with a linear coupling in an antide Sitter bulk spacetime bounded by a Minkowski (RandallSundrum) brane. An instability criterion for the coupled boundary and bulk system is found. There exists a tachyonic bound state when the coupling is above a critical value, determined by the masses of the brane and bulk fields and AdS curvature scale. This bound state is normalizable and localized near the brane, and leads to a tachonic instability of the system on large scales. Below the critical coupling, there is no tachyonic statemore »

Bulk and brane decay of a (4+n)dimensional Schwarzschildde Sitter black hole: Scalar radiation
In this paper, we extend the idea that the spectrum of Hawking radiation can reveal valuable information on a number of parameters that characterize a particular black hole backgroundsuch as the dimensionality of spacetime and the value of coupling constantsto gain information on another important aspect: the curvature of spacetime. We investigate the emission of Hawking radiation from a Ddimensional Schwarzschildde Sitter black hole emitted in the form of scalar fields, and employ both analytical and numerical techniques to calculate greybody factors and differential energy emission rates on the brane and in the bulk. The energy emission rate of themore » 
Tunneling between de Sitter and antide Sitter black holes in a noncommutative D{sub 3}brane formalism
We obtain de Sitter (dS) and antide Sitter (AdS) generalized ReissnerNordstromlike black hole geometries in a curved D{sub 3}brane framework, underlying a noncommutative gauge theory on the brane world. The noncommutative scaling limit is explored to investigate a possible tunneling of an AdS vacuum in string theory to dS vacuum in its low energy gravity theory. The Hagedorn transition is invoked into its selfdual gauge theory to decouple the gauge nonlinearity from the dS geometry, which in turn is shown to describe a pure dS vacuum. 
Asymptotic behavior and Hamiltonian analysis of antide Sitter gravity coupled to scalar fields
We examine antide Sitter gravity minimally coupled to a selfinteracting scalar field in D>=4 dimensions when the mass of the scalar field is in the range m{sub *}{sup 2}=<m{sup 2}<m{sub *}{sup 2}+l{sup 2}. Here, l is the AdS radius, and m{sub *}{sup 2} is the BreitenlohnerFreedman mass. We show that even though the scalar field generically has a slow falloff at infinity which back reacts on the metric so as to modify its standard asymptotic behavior, one can still formulate asymptotic conditions (i) that are antide Sitter invariant; and (ii) that allows the construction of welldefined and finite Hamiltonian generatorsmore » 
Geodesic evolution and nucleation of a de Sitter brane
Within the framework of geodesic brane gravity, the deviation from general relativity is parametrized by the conserved bulk energy. The corresponding geodesic evolution/nucleation of a de Sitter brane is shown to be exclusively driven by a doublewell Higgs potential, rather than by a plain cosmological constant. The (hairy) horizon serves then as the locus of unbroken Z{sub 2} symmetry. The quartic structure of the scalar potential, singled out on finiteness grounds of the total (including the dark component) energy density, chooses the HartleHawking noboundary proposal.
