Beschreibung

This timely and valuable book provides a detailed pedagogical introduction and treatment of the brane-localized gravity program of Randall and Sundrum, in which gravitational signals are able to localize around our four-dimensional world in the event that it is a brane embedded in an infinitely-sized, higher dimensional anti-de Sitter bulk space. A completely self-contained development of the material needed for brane-world studies is provided for both students sand workers in the field, with a significant amount of the material being previously unpublished. Particular attention is given to issues not ordinarily treated in the brane-world literature, such as the completeness of tensor gravitational fluctuation modes, the causality of brane-world propagators, and the status of the massless graviton fluctuation mode in brane worlds in which it is not normalizable.

Pressestimmen

"In this book Philip Mannheim has presented a self-contained and fully-detailed description of brane-world physics. It is not just a summary of the literature, but it is truly an elaboration on the literature. All of the derivations are laid out in a consistent formalism and in complete detail. The book should be a valuable resource to anyone who is interested in following the progress of this exciting area of theoretical physics."
