## Cosmological Constant from Asymptotically Vanishing Particle-Antiparticle Asymmetry in a Rotating Brane Universe

**Authors:** Kabir Adinoyi Umar

Using an interpretation of special relativity in the context of a rotating brane universe, it is shown
that an asymptotically vanishing particle antiparticle asymmetry described by a cosmological factor Г
can result such that 0 < Г < 1. We discus a cancellation scenario in which an asymptotically vanishing
effective cosmological constant Λ arise from this asymmetry where virtual particles and antiparticles
contribute attractive and repulsive terms respectively to the quantum vacuum. The asymmetry is fundamentally
in the form of difference in speed limit c and for particles and antiparticles which in this scenario,
exists as excitations of the opposite surfaces of a brane universe rotating along its time dimension. Using
estimates from quantum field theory and the observed value of dark energy density, the cosmological factor is
constrained to be ≈ 10-120 in the present universe. Observational constraint may also come from precision
measurement of spatial curvature. Г ≈ 1 obtainable in the early universe would produce large
effective cosmological constant (Λ ~ 1068 m-2) capable of driving inflation and possibly the baryon
asymmetry of our universe.
