In the past decade, there has been considerable interest in braneworld scenar ios where the universe lives on a brane in a higherdimensional bulk and gravity is modiﬁed. The heterotic braneworld scenario of Lukas, Ovrut, Stelle and Waldram (LOSW) is derived from HoravaWitten Mtheory, where six of the eleven dimen sions have been compactiﬁed on a CalabiYau manifold. The solution consists of two parallel threebranes separated by the 11th dimension with a scalar ﬁeld in the bulk. In this dissertation we review some of the alternative theories of grav ity, including the KaluzaKlein model as an early example of a theory featuring extra dimensions, and the more recent braneworld models, in particular the models proposed by Randall and Sundrum, based on which many braneworld techniques were developed. We use these techniques to study gravity in the LOSW model, and explore the possibilities for a black hole solution. Using perturbation theory, we ﬁnd that the zero mode sector consists of the graviton and the radion which is coupled to the bulk scalar ﬁeld, and there is a continuum of massive states. The brane gravity is scalartensor with a BransDicke parameter of ω = 0.5. Then we show that although it is possible to have a black string between the two branes, it suﬀers from a GregoryLaﬂamme instability. We also show that it is not possible to obtain spherically symmetric solutions, so we solve the coupled brane and bulk Einstein equations for an axisymmetric metric. We obtain a solution which asymp totes the LOSW vacuum and resembles the black string. The solution looks like the Schwarzshild solution at a large distance, but the interbrane distance is not constant and the string becomes inﬁnite as it reaches the Schwarzshild radius.
