The Physics of Extra Dimensions

  • Ignatios Antoniadis
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 720)

Abstract

Lowering the string scale in the TeV region provides a theoretical framework for solving the mass hierarchy problem and unifying all interactions. The apparent weakness of gravity can then be accounted by the existence of large internal dimensions, in the submillimeter region, and transverse to a braneworld where our universe must be con?ned. I review the main properties of this scenario and its implications for observations at both particle colliders, and in non-accelerator gravity experiments. Such e?ects are for instance the production of Kaluza-Klein resonances, graviton emission in the bulk of extra dimensions, and a radical change of gravitational forces in the submillimeter range. I also discuss the warped case and localization of gravity in the presence of in?nite size extra dimensions.
