Models with extra dimensions have attracted much interest recently. The reason is that string theory, a serious candidate for the theory of unification of all interactions, predicts the existence of up to seven extra dimensions. These models have many attractive features and may turn out to provide the solution for many long standing problems in physics. One interesting and very attractive idea is that our visible universe is confined to a four-dimensional hypersurface in a higher-dimensional spacetime. This membrane like universe was dubbed brane-world.
