# Collider signatures from the brane world

@article{Shiu1999ColliderSF, title={Collider signatures from the brane world}, author={Gary Shiu and Robert Shrock and S. H. Henry Tye}, journal={Physics Letters B}, year={1999}, volume={458}, pages={274-282} }

Abstract We discuss some collider signatures of the brane world. In addition to the usual bulk (closed string) fields and brane (open string) fields in the Type I string picture, there are closed string fields, namely, twisted modes, which are not confined on the branes but nonetheless are localized in the extra compactified dimensions. While the coupling of the Standard Model (brane) fields with a bulk mode (such as the graviton) is suppressed by powers of the Planck mass, their coupling to a… Expand
