From a Five Dimensional Warped Friedmann–Robertson–Walker Universe to the Weyl Integrable Spacetime

  • Marina-Aura Dariescu
  • Ciprian Dariescu


The present work intends to point out similarities between the theory developed on a (k = 0)−FRW brane embedded in a five dimensional bulk and significant results derived within the Weyl integrable geometry.
