Title: Inverse problem: What can we tell about the matter and energy in our Universe from its dimensionality and evolution

Abstract

The most well-known theories of everything are assorted versions of the superstring theory. The theories require existence of additional space dimensions, vibrations of which create the material particles in 3D space. The additional space dimensions are understood as being currently smaller than the Planck Length and due to this not directly observable. We search for multidimensional models of the Universe (one time dimension; three isotropic, flat external dimensions, and n-internal dimensions), which satisfy the multidimensional Einstein equations and which started from the same radius of all of the internal and external dimensions, with an anisotropic energy–momentum tensor. Analytical solution of (N+1)-dimensional Einstein equation in a reparameterized time is reminded and discussed. The energy–momentum tensor is solely responsible for expansion of the external dimensions and shrinking of the internal ones; and to obtain this behavior of the space the tensor needs to fulfill some conditions i.e. the energy–momentum tensor cannot include only radiation, vacuum and baryonic matter. For the behavior of the physical space consistent with the one observed in our Universe, the dark energy and/or dark matter have to exist.
