The smallnes of Λ - objections München 2009 — •Jürgen Brandes — 76307 Karlsbad
The main objections München 2009 concern negative gravitational forces caused by Λ. These forces from opposite directions cancel each other in the same manner as normal ones do. Take an infinite space - the nonempty vacuum of QM - and accelerations caused by Λ vanish. The RWM allows both, a finite spacetime and infinite space, but cosmologists disagree with the last. This is the reason for 'the most outstanding challenges'[Bergström] to explain the smallness of Λ. Explaining the smallness of Λ is only the first step and not a final theory of its exact value. This and other objections München 2009 will be discussed.
