the cosmological constant
the Cosmological Constant

“Einstein’s biggest blunder”

  • Observations
  • Geometrical Status
  • Modeling Gravitational Structures

Prelude

observations the 80th
Observations - the 80th
  • In the past :
  • Dynamics of galaxies in clusters
  • Minimum age of the Universe

In the 80’s:Hubble diagram (QSOs, BCGs), VLSS (QSOs)

(spatially) closed Universe

Observations - Nowadays

Nowadays :

CMB temperature fluctuations

status of l geometry
Status of L- Geometry)

The gravitational field and its sources are characterized by

Schwarzschild solution - Newton approximation

modeling gravitational structures
Modeling gravitational structures

(Modified) Newton law

  • With L : Gravitation becomes repulsive at “large” scale
  • No L-effect in Solar neighborhood
  • Small effect in the outerpart of the Galaxy
  • Intervenes at the edge of LSC
  • Homogeneity scale
the cosmological constant problem1
The cosmological Constant Problem

The contribution of quantum fluctuations

  • A similar problem happens when one assumes
  • Solar neighborhood
  • Primordial epoch ( Vacuum dominate expansion)

Another version of the Cosmological Constant Problem
