Solitonic solutions and particle localization in higher dimensional spaces
First the basic extra dimensional theory (i.e. Kaluza-Klein theory) and the main aspects of solitons are reviewed. Then the current status of extra dimen-sional models and the application of solitons (especially kinks) in this context are studied. The extra dimensional models for fermion localization are considered with a particular emphasis. Finally a variation of these models which tries to in-corporate the best aspects of various models for fermion localization is presented.
