Abstract

Smooth distributions of self-gravitating strings and membranes are modelled by foliating chains. A stress tensor is devised that ensures each leaf is an extremal immersion in a spacetime metric determined self-consistently from Einstein's equations. Cosmological solutions are described leading to anisotropies that offer a mechanism of dynamical dimensional reduction.
