Abstract

The implications of brane motion in angular directions of Calabi-Yau flux compactifica-tions is discussed from the point of view of an observer living on the worldvolume of such a brane and from the point of view of an observer living elsewhere in the three non-compact dimensions. The brane observer experiences cosmological bounces and cyclic behavior induced by centrifugal angular momentum barriers. Observers living elsewhere in the compactification experience marginally prolonged periods of inflation due to large angular momentum.
