Large Mass Hierarchy from a Small Extra Dimension" in Physical Review Letters 83 Issue 17, 25 October 1999, pp. 3370 - 3373 and "An Alternative to Compactification" in Physical Review Letters 83 Issue 23, 6 December 1999, pp. 4690-4693
- FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF TWO OF THE MOST CITED PAPERS IN THE HISTORY OF PHYSICS. In these papers, Randall and Sundrum show that infinite extra dimension and weakness of gravity can be explained with an extra dimension. "String theory extra dimensions have traditionally been considered to be small and unobservable. Randall and Sundrum introduced an alternative in these two papers in which one of the additional dimensions is "warped." In their approach, the strong, weak, and electromagnetic forces are confined to three dimensions (on a 3-brane, a three-dimensional "membrane," at a specific location in the other dimensions), but gravity propagates in the warped space as well. Their work differs from most of the rest of string theory in that they predict quantum effects due to gravity that may soon be testable by the LHC. To parse the theoretical disunification of physics in disparate gravitational force-strength Lisa Randall and Raman Sundrum posited the existence of extra-dimensional brane-layers actively leaking energy fluctuations into our own universe; with mathematical supports, Randall and Sundrum illustrated their idea's compatibility with existing cosmological valuations and astrophysical data. Lisa Randall was the first tenured woman in physics at Princeton, as well as the first tenured theorist at Harvard and MIT. Additionally, she is the most cited theoretical physicist in the world.
