Echoes Of The Fifth Dimension?, Luis A. Anchordoqui, Thomas P. Mccauley, Stephen Reucroft, John Swain

The analysis is performed within the framework of large compact dimensions and TeV scale quantum gravity. Our study indicates that while this hypothesis must be regarded as highly speculative it cannot be ruled out with present data.
