HEP /04/2006 V. Zamarias2 Introduction - Motivation Bulk: Type-0 String background which includes RR fluxes + bulk tachyon field. Effect on the Brane? Brane: Probe D3-Brane, DBI action + WZ action Dynamics: Movement of the Probe D3-Brane in the Type-0 background: Mirage Cosmology [A. Kehagias & E. Kiritsis - JHEP 9911, 022 (1999) ] Geometric Open Tachyon Interpretation: Open Tachyon field on the brane rolling down its potential. Cosmology? Coupling to gravity.

HEP /04/2006 V. Zamarias9 4. Coupling to Gravity - Tachyon Cosmology As the Brane moves in the Type-0 String Background it feels 2 effects: a)Its own gravitational field by introducing a curvature term R: Gravitational field on the Brane Open tachyon techniques. b)The gravitational field of the bulk: Mirage Cosmology.
HEP /04/2006 V. Zamarias10 a. Gravitational Field on the Brane DBI action of the Geometrical Tachyon field coupled to gravity which acts as LOCAL matter source on the brane: Energy-momentum tensor:
HEP /04/2006 V. Zamarias11 We assume a Flat Robertson-Walker metric on the brane
HEP /04/2006 V. Zamarias12 b. Gravitational Field of the Bulk As the Brane moves in the Type-0 String Background a metric is induced on the brane (Mirage Cosmology): with η the cosmic time: Defining as a scale factor a=g we get:
HEP /04/2006 V. Zamarias13 We can also calculate the Raychaudhury equation and the inflation parameter: which is a function of the radial distance r and the value of T Bulk. We assume a smooth function: where ζ controls how steep is the variation, while σ indicates when the transition from to occurs.
HEP /04/2006 V. Zamarias14 E small, ζ = 8, σ = 1.28
HEP /04/2006 V. Zamarias15 CONCLUSIONS The presence of T Bulk affects significantly the behavior of the geometrical tachyon field. We get early inflation with exit from it and late time acceleration without the need of dark energy. Need of a better understanding of the behavior of the T Bulk and the relation between open and closed strings.
