The cosmological term and a modified BransDicke cosmology.
Abstract
Adding the cosmological term Λ, which is assumed to be variable in this paper, to the BransDicke Lagrangian, we try to understand the meaning of the term and to relate it to the mass of the universe. We also touch upon the Dirac largenumber hypothesis, applying the results obtained from the application of our theory to a uniform cosmological model.
