Localizing Braneworlds in Infinite Spaces

There have been a number of attempts to achieve a localization of gravity on a braneworld hypersurface embedded in an infinite spacetime, but these have all fallen short of what might be desired, for various reasons. There have even been no-go theorems claimed for constructions made using just accepted elements of string or M theory. The talk will present a proposed resolution of this problem based upon a hyperbolic solution of type IIA theory with a superposed NS-5 brane. Gravity is bound to the brane surface owing to the existence of a single normalizable bound state of the transverse space Laplacian.
