Abstract We describe an algorithm and a C++ implementation that we have written and made available for calculating the fully nonlinear evolution of 5D braneworld models with scalar fields. Bulk fields allow for the stabilization of the extra dimension. However, they complicate the dynamics of the system, so that analytic calculations (performed within an effective 4D theory) are usually only reliable for static bulk configurations or when the evolution of the extra dimension is negligible. In the gene... Title of program: BRANECODE Catalogue Id: ADVX_v1_0 Nature of problem Dynamics of two co-dimension one branes in a five-dimensional spacetime with a bulk scalar field and arbitrary potentials. The dynamics is governed by the five-dimensional Einstein equations of gravity and the junction conditions at the position of the branes.
