I am having difficulty of finding more basic information on warped geometries. All the standard textbooks are not covering it.

In the wiki article it's only said that warped geometry is the one which can be decomposed in a certain way, but there are no details. All the articles mentioning warped AdS geometry refers to topological massive gravity.

If someone can tell me where I could find some introduction to warped geometries and it's uses, that would be great.

there are many sources of info about AdS geometries on the net. I think the simplest introduction to these models is: http://www-thphys.physics.ox.ac.uk/people/MaximeGabella/rs.pdf This covers the Randall-Sundrum model, you can also check the original paper: http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-ph/9905221

The texts above address AdS geometry in extra dimensional models. The paper below addresses extra dimensions in general and also talks about the AdS extra dimensions: http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-ph/0404096

Is this what you had in mind? There is a lot more material to be found on the arxiv if you search it from spires (www.inspirehep.net).

  • $\begingroup$ The firs link is forbidden, but I think that the TASI lectures will do. I need a definition what is warped AdS (AdS_3 to be exact), a bit about the symmetries (altho that follows from the symmetries of the AdS_3). The general info. $\endgroup$ – dingo_d Dec 28 '13 at 14:44
