Abstract

We investigate the bubble nucleation in five-dimensional spacetime catalyzed by quintessence. We especially focus on the decay of a metastable Minkowski vacuum to an anti-de Sitter vacuum and study the dynamics of the bubble on which a four-dimensional expanding universe is realized. We also discuss the trans-Planckian censorship conjecture and impose a constraint on the parameter space of the catalysis. As an application of this model, we propose an inflation mechanism and an origin of the dark energy in the context of quintessence in five dimensions.
