Multiple-scales analysis of cosmological perturbations in brane-worlds

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    We present a new approximation method for solving the equations of motion for cosmological tensor perturbations in a Randall-Sundrum brane-world model of the type with one brane in a five-dimensional anti-de Sitter spacetime. This method avoids the problem of coordinate singularities inherent in some methods. At leading-order, the zero-mode solution replicates the evolution of perturbations in a four-dimensional Friedmann-Robertson-Walker universe in the absence of any tensor component to the matter perturbation on the brane. At next order, there is a mode-mixing effect, although, importantly, the zero-mode does not source any other modes.
