Is there a connection between “dark” and “light” physics?
In the early-mid 20th century Dirac and Zel’dovich were among the first scientists to suggest an intimate connection between cosmology and atomic physics. Though a revolutionary proposal for its
Supersymmetric Cosmology and Dark Energy
Abstract: Using the superfield approach we construct the n= 2 super-symmetric lagrangian for the FRW Universe with perfect fluid as matter fields.The obtained supersymmetric algebra allowed us to take
The minimum mass of a spherically symmetric object in D-dimensions, and its implications for the mass hierarchy problem
The existence of both a minimum mass and a minimum density in nature, in the presence of a positive cosmological constant, is one of the most intriguing results in classical general relativity. These
Generalised uncertainty relations from superpositions of geometries
Phenomenological approaches to quantum gravity implement a minimum resolvable length-scale but do not link it to an underlying formalism describing geometric superpositions. Here, we introduce an

Recent observations of the dark energy density have demonstrated the fine-tuning problem and the challenges faced by theoretical modeling. In this study, we apply the self-similar symmetry (SSS)
A model to inter-relate the values of the quantum electrodynamic, gravitational and cosmological constants
The fundamental constants of electromagnetism, gravity and quantum mechanics can be related empirically by the numerical approximation $\ln(V_e/V_P)\approx \alpha^{-1}$, where $\alpha$ is the low
Application of Self-Similar Symmetry Model to Dark Energy
Recent observations of the dark energy density demonstrates the fine-tuning problem and challenges in theoretical modelling. In this study, we apply the self-similar symmetry (SSS) model, describing
Does space-time torsion determine the minimum mass of gravitating particles?
The existence of quantum spin imposes a lower bound for spinning particles, which almost exactly reproduces the electron mass, in the spin-generalized strong gravity model for baryons/mesons.
The QCD mass gap and quark deconfinement scales as mass bounds in strong gravity
Though not a part of mainstream physics, Salam’s theory of strong gravity remains a viable effective model for the description of strong interactions in the gauge singlet sector of QCD, capable of


The Cosmological Constants
THE fundamental constants of physics, such as c the velocity of light, h Planck's constant, e the charge and m mass of the electron, and so on, provide for us a set of absolute units for measurement
Physics of Dark Energy Particles
Abstract We consider the astrophysical and cosmological implications of the existence of a minimum density and mass due to the presence of the cosmological constant. If there is a minimum length in

In an investigation which I hope to publish shortly, I think I have been able to improve my theory of the constant hc/2πe2 and to bring it at last into a precise form. No alteration is made in the
Observational Evidence from Supernovae for an Accelerating Universe and a Cosmological Constant
We present spectral and photometric observations of 10 Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) in the redshift range 0.16 ≤ z ≤ 0.62. The luminosity distances of these objects are determined by methods that
First-Year Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) Observations: Determination of Cosmological Parameters
WMAP precision data enable accurate testing of cosmological models. We find that the emerging standard model of cosmology, a flat Λ-dominated universe seeded by a nearly scale-invariant adiabatic
We introduce a new model for dark energy in the Universe in which a small cosmological constant is generated by ordinary electromagnetic vacuum energy. The corresponding virtual photons exist at all
Chaotic scalar fields as models for dark energy
We consider stochastically quantized self-interacting scalar fields as suitable models to generate dark energy in the universe. Second quantization effects lead to new and unexpected phenomena is the
