Brane World: Gravitation and Geometry  

In General > s.a. Pauli-Fierz Theory; tests of general relativity.
* Issues: Gravity in 5D braneworld backgrounds often exhibits problematic features, including kinetic ghosts, strong coupling, and the van Dam-Veltman-Zakharov (vDVZ) discontinuity, which are an obstacle to producing and analyzing models with interesting and potentially observable modifications of 4D gravity.

Black Holes > s.a. black-hole formation [HEP collisions]; higher-dimensional black holes; types of black-holes [primordial].
* Radiation: Scalars, fermions and vectors radiate on the brane, while gravitons radiate in all directions, and the number of possible helicities D(D–3)/2 grows with D, so they lead to a higher evaporation rate in higher dimensions.

Corrections to Newtonian Gravity > s.a. modifications and tests of newtonian gravity.
* Idea: On scales r \(\ll\) R, the force goes like F ~ r–(n+2); On scales r \(\gg\) R, it goes like F ~ r –2.
