Extra dimensions

Figure 1. Space-time foam. Source

The idea of extra dimensions has become one of key components of many theories trying to unify fundamental interactions in recent decades. Boson sector of such theories usually includes different kinds of scalar and vector fields, and fields of antisymmetric forms. At the same time extra components of D-dimensional metrics naturally lead to the appearance of scalar and vector fields due to the reduction towards four-dimensional space-time.

One of our groups develops the approach, invoking the existence of compact extra dimensions and the Lagrangian (nonlinear in Ricci scalar) contains only the metric tensor as dynamical variables.

What has been done so far

Our plans for the future


  • the model of baryogenesis
  • the mechanism of the primordial black holes clusters formation and its observational manifestations

Particle physics

  • solution of the hierarchy problem;
  • realization of Higgs mechanism with multidimensional fermions;
  • solution of the problem concerning the small neutrino mass

Search for extra dimensions in particle accelerator experiments

Very heavy particles with peculiar properties could be found in proton-proton collisions  confirming the existence of extra dimensions.

For example, if a graviton was born, it could escape in extra dimension. In this case the ATLAS experiment could detect the energy disbalance.

Another way to experimentally reveal extra dimensions is to observe the microscopic black hole formation in particle collision.
