Title: "Phenomenology of multidimensional cosmological models"
The brane-world models, in which the space-time is decribed by a
five (or more) -dimensional manifold with matter fields confied
in a domain wall or three-brane, are reviewed. These models
arise in the framework of M theory. Particular attention is paid
to the generalized Randall-Sundrum models (covariant approach),
the Cardassian scenario, the induced gravity models, the self-tuning
models and the Ekpyrotic scenario. We discuss their basic properties
and connection with the conventional cosmology.
