Abstract

We discuss the localization of scalar, fermion, and gauge field zero modes on a 3-brane that resides at the intersection of two 4-branes in six-dimensional anti-de Sitter space. In this model, it has been shown that four-dimensional gravity can be reproduced at the intersection. Realistic scenarios require also the standard model to be localized on the 3-brane. We discuss that zero modes of these fields can be localized only if masses and couplings to the background curvature satisfy certain relations. In the case of bulk fermions is particularly interesting, the properties of the geometry allow localization of chiral modes independently.
