Gravitational trapping for extended extra dimension. (English) Zbl 1062.83554

Summary: The solution of Einstein’s equations for 4-brane embedded in five-dimensional Anti-de Sitter space-time is found. It is shown that the cosmological constant can provide the existence of ordinary four-dimensional Newton’s law and trapping of a matter on the brane.
