A Solution to the Cosmological Constant Problem

  title={A Solution to the Cosmological Constant Problem},
  author={John W. Moffat},
The fluctuations of the vacuum energy are treated as a non-equilibrium process and a stochastic model for the cosmological constant is presented, which yields a natural explanation for the smallness or zero value of the constant in the present epoch and its large value in an era of inflation in the early universe.
