DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Sergei Bolokhov ()\nWe consider a multidimensional K
aluzaâ€“-Klein-like model with nonlinear curvature terms and two spherical
extra spaces of dimensions $m$ and $n$. The properties of an effective ac
tion for the scale factors of extra dimensions are studied. Dimensional re
duction leads to an effective 4D multiscalar-tensor theory. Based on quali
tative estimates of the Casimir energy contribution at a physically reason
able length scale\, we demonstrate the existence of such sets of the initi
al parameters of the theory in the case $m = n$ that provide a minimum of
the effective potential at this scale which yields a fine-tuned value of t
he effective 4D cosmological constant. The corresponding size of extra dim
ensions depends of which conformal frame is interpreted as the observation
al one: it is about three orders of magnitude larger than the standard Pla
nck length if we adhere to the Einstein frame\, but it is n-dependent in t
he Jordan frame\, and its invisibility requirement leads to some restricti
ons on the total dimension of space-time.\n\nhttps://indico.particle.mephi
