Natural brane-confinement from massive Z 2-spontaneously broken Kaluza-Klein excitations in the bulk

From the journal Open Physics


For a real scalar field minimally coupled to bulk gravity, in five dimensions, we analytically solve the Gordon equation, near one of the degenerated vacua of an effective potential with a spontaneously broken Z 2-symmetry. Dealing with the back-reaction from the excited massive modes on the whole scale function, we are pointing out that the lighter excitations of the scalar in the bulk turn more and more the warp function into the one of a partition on the confined brane.
