    On cosmological-type solutions in multi-dimensional model with Gauss-Bonnet term

    Full text link
    A (n + 1)-dimensional Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet (EGB) model is considered. For diagonal cosmological-type metrics, the equations of motion are reduced to a set of Lagrange equations. The effective Lagrangian contains two "minisuperspace" metrics on R^n. The first one is the well-known 2-metric of pseudo-Euclidean signature and the second one is the Finslerian 4-metric that is proportional to n-dimensional Berwald-Moor 4-metric. When a "synchronous-like" time gauge is considered the equations of motion are reduced to an autonomous system of first-order differential equations. For the case of the "pure" Gauss-Bonnet model, two exact solutions with power-law and exponential dependence of scale factors (with respect to "synchronous-like" variable) are obtained. (In the cosmological case the power-law solution was considered earlier in papers of N. Deruelle, A. Toporensky, P. Tretyakov and S. Pavluchenko.) A generalization of the effective Lagrangian to the Lowelock case is conjectured. This hypothesis implies existence of exact solutions with power-law and exponential dependence of scale factors for the "pure" Lowelock model of m-th order.Comment: 24 pages, Latex, typos are eliminate

    On avoiding cosmological oscillating behavior for S-brane solutions with diagonal metrics

    Full text link
    In certain string inspired higher dimensional cosmological models it has been conjectured that there is generic, chaotic oscillating behavior near the initial singularity -- the Kasner parameters which characterize the asymptotic form of the metric "jump" between different, locally constant values and exhibit a never-ending oscillation as one approaches the singularity. In this paper we investigate a class of cosmological solutions with form fields and diagonal metrics which have a "maximal" number of composite electric S-branes. We look at two explicit examples in D=4 and D=5 dimensions that do not have chaotic oscillating behavior near the singularity. When the composite branes are replaced by non-composite branes chaotic oscillatingComment: Corrected typos, published in Phys. Rev. D72, 103511 (2005

    Black-brane solution for C_2 algebra

    Get PDF
    Black p-brane solutions for a wide class of intersection rules and Ricci-flat ``internal'' spaces are considered. They are defined up to moduli functions H_s obeying non-linear differential equations with certain boundary conditions imposed. A new solution with intersections corresponding to the Lie algebra C_2 is obtained. The functions H_1 and H_2 for this solution are polynomials of degree 3 and 4.Comment: 12 pages, Latex, submitted to J. Math. Phy

    On analogues of black brane solutions in the model with multicomponent anisotropic fluid

    Full text link
    A family of spherically symmetric solutions with horizon in the model with m-component anisotropic fluid is presented. The metrics are defined on a manifold that contains a product of n-1 Ricci-flat "internal" spaces. The equation of state for any s-th component is defined by a vector U^s belonging to R^{n + 1}. The solutions are governed by moduli functions H_s obeying non-linear differential equations with certain boundary conditions imposed. A simulation of black brane solutions in the model with antisymmetric forms is considered. An example of solution imitating M_2-M_5 configuration (in D =11 supergravity) corresponding to Lie algebra A_2 is presented.Comment: 8 pages, Latex, references and several equations and examples are added, typos are eliminate

    Hyperbolic Kac-Moody Algebra from Intersecting p-branes

    Get PDF
    A subclass of recently discovered class of solutions in multidimensional gravity with intersecting p-branes related to Lie algebras and governed by a set of harmonic functions is considered. This subclass in case of three Euclidean p-branes (one electric and two magnetic) contains a cosmological-type solution (in 11-dimensional model with two 4-forms) related to hyperbolic Kac-Moody algebra F3{\cal F}_3 (of rank 3). This solution describes the non-Kasner power-law inflation.Comment: 15 pages, Latex. A talk presented at the Second Winter School on Branes, Fields and Math. Phys. (Seoul, Korea). Corrected version.
