55 M 4 Z spread all over the Universe, which is responsible for its accelerated expansion. This energy density is incredibly small as compared with the contribution of QCD condensates to the total vacuum energy density, which is expected to be of order � 4 ≃ 10 74 M 4 Pl . An even much larger contribution ∼ v 4 ≃ 10 62 M 4 Pl must come from the electroweak symmetry breaking, while the contribution of zero–modes should push the total vacuum energy density up to ∼ M 4 Pl . Because of the enormous…

Cosmological Constant in SUGRA Models with Degenerate Vacua

The extrapolation of couplings up to the Planck scale within the standard model (SM) indicates that the Higgs effective potential can have two almost degenerate vacua, which were predicted by the

Predicting the SUSY breaking scale in SUGRA models with degenerate vacua

In [Formula: see text] supergravity, the scalar potential may have supersymmetric (SUSY) and nonsupersymmetric Minkowski vacua (associated with supersymmetric and physical phases) with vanishing

Dark Energy density in models with Split Supersymmetry and degenerate vacua

In N = 1 supergravity supersymmetric and nonsupersymmetric Minkowski vacua originating in the hidden sector can be degenerate. In the supersymmetric phase in flat Minkowski space, nonperturbative

F(750), We Miss You as a Bound State of 6 Top and 6 Antitop Quarks, Multiple Point Principle

We review our speculation, that in the pure Standard Model the exchange of Higgses, including also the ones "eaten by $W^{\pm}$ and Z", and of gluons together make a bound state of 6 top plus 6 anti

The New Dijet Particle in the Tevatron IS the Higgs

The newly found \cite{CDFnew} dijet peak in the 120 GeV to 160 GeV mass region produced in co-production with W IS actually a Higgs Boson in spite of the expectation of a different decay pattern for



Smallness of the cosmological constant and the multiple point principle

In this talk we argue that the breakdown of global symmetries in no-scale supergravity (SUGRA), which ensures the vanishing of the vacuum energy density near the physical vacuum, leads to a natural

Cosmological constant in SUGRA models and the multiple-point principle

An attempt is made to explain the tiny order of magnitude of the cosmological constant in a model involvingt he following ingredients: supersymmetry breaking in N = 1 supergravity and the

Nonlocality as an Explanation for Finetuning and Field replication in Nature

Constants of Nature that have nongeneric values pose a riddle often referred to as the finetuning problem. The conspicuous values assumed by many physical constants (e.g., the vanishing effective

No--scale supergravity and the Multiple Point Principle

We review symmetries protecting a zero value for the cosmological constant in no--scale supergravity and reveal the connection between the Multiple Point Principle, no--scale and superstring inspired
