Interacting dark side of universe through generalized uncertainty principle
We investigate the impact of the generalized uncertainty principle proposed by some approaches to quantum gravity such as string theory and doubly special relativity on the cosmology. Using
Implications on the cosmic coincidence by a dynamical extrinsic curvature
In this work, we apply the smooth deformation concept in order to obtain a modification of Friedmann’s equations. It is shown that the cosmic coincidence can be at least alleviated using the
Accounting for the expansion of the universe using an energy/momentum model to construct the space-time metric
Background: The success of the theories of special and general relativity in describing localised phenomena, such as objects undergoing high speed motion or located in gravitational fields, needs no
Reconstruction of f(T)$f(T)$-gravity in the absence of matter
We derive an exact f(T)$f(T)$ gravity in the absence of ordinary matter in Friedmann-Robertson-Walker (FRW) universe, where T$T$ is the teleparallel torsion scalar. We show that vanishing of the
Directional detection of dark matter with diamond
Searches for weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP) dark matter will in the near future be sensitive to solar neutrinos. Directional detection offers a method to reject solar neutrinos and


The Cosmological Constant Problem
Astronomical observations indicate that the cosmological constant is many orders of magnitude smaller than estimated in modern theories of elementary particles. After a brief review of the history of
We discuss the four-dimensional cosmological constant problem in a five-dimensional setting. A scalar field coupled to the SM forms dynamically a smooth brane with four-dimensional Poincare
A Priori probability distribution of the cosmological constant
In calculations of the probability distribution for the cosmological constant, it has been previously assumed that the a priori probability distribution is essentially constant in the very narrow
PHYSICS OF OUR DAYS: Vacuum theory: a possible solution to the singularity problem of cosmology
The present state of the question of the vacuum energy, cosmological constant, and vacuum polarization in a curved non-Euclidean space-time, i.e., in a gravitational field, is discussed. A
Categorizing Different Approaches to the Cosmological Constant Problem
The aim of this paper is to identify as many different, credible mechanisms as possible and to provide them with a code for future reference and find that they all can be classified into five different schemes of which the advantages and drawbacks are indicated.
The Cosmological Constant Problem, an Inspiration for New Physics
We have critically compared different approaches to the cosmological constant problem, which is at the edge of elementary particle physics and cosmology. This problem is deeply connected with the
Dynamical approach to the cosmological constant.
The merit of this model is that it is stable under radiative corrections and leads to stable dynamics, despite the singular kinetic term, and can at the very least reduce fine-tuning by 60 orders of magnitude or provide a new mechanism for sampling possible cosmological constants and implementing the anthropic principle.
