The Randall-Sumdrum model (Randall-Sundrum 99a, 99b) is a class of string theory inspired models in combined cosmology and particle physics, which assume that the observable universe constitutes the asymptotic boundary of an ambient anti de Sitter spacetime: the force of gravity would pertain to the full anti de sitter “bulk” spacetime, but the gauge fields and fermion matter fields would be constrained to reside on that boundary, as would hence be all observations made via electromagnetic radiation by observers inside this cosmology.
Hence the extra bulk dimensions in these models need not be small (technically: the fiber spaces need not be compact topological spaces with tiny Riemannian volume) in order to be unobservable for observers. This is in contrast to the (historically much older) Kaluza-Klein compactification models for physics with extra dimensions. Therefore Randall-Sumdrum-like models are also referred to as large extra dimension models.
One original motivation for the RS-models was the idea that this setup could address the hierarchy problem.
Something at least close to Randall-Sundrum models naturally appears in string phenomenology: In intersecting D-brane models the standard model of particle physics is part of the worldvolume quantum field theory of D6-branes intersected to a 3+1-dimensional subspace. By the general lore of black holes in string theory, non-perturbatively these D6-branes are black branes with anti de Sitter near horizon geometry. Hence the cosmology of intersecting D-brane models is qualitatively of Randall-Sundrum form, even if details may differ. For the quick idea see Teraguchi 07, around slide 21, for review and further pointers see Uranga 02, section 18.
For more on this see at intersecting D-brane models the section Cosmology and Holography.
