New Dimensions: Ressources.

  1. Oct 22, 2008 #1
    Hi everybody,

    I want to tackle the study of the physics of new dimensions: theoretical and phenomenological (Dark matter) aspects.
    Could you please point to some interesting books/articles ?

    Thanks in advance.

    A fairly decent (and relatively concise) summary can be found in the Particle Data Group's Review of Particle Properties:


    Click on "Hypothetical Particles and Concepts," and download the "Extra Dimensions (rev)" document. This is probably the best place to start. You can almost all necessary references therein if you want to dig deeper. There is also a Dark Matter review under the "Astrophysics and Cosmology" tab, which likely contains a section on extra dimensions.

    Good luck!

    I would suggest all the TASI lectures. They are a pedagoical jewel.

    If you don't already use Spires (http://www.slac.stanford.edu/spires/) its a great resource for papers.

    Go to

    http://www.slac.stanford.edu/spires/find/hep/www?rawcmd=find+k+tasi&FORMAT=WWW&SEQUENCE= [Broken]

    for the TASI lectures. Scroll down and find the topics you are interested in.
