Effectiveaction model for the vanishing of the cosmological constant
Abstract
I given an effectiveaction model for the vanishing of the cosmological constant, based on the qualitative ansatz that the intermediateenergy gravitational action has a nonlinear dependence on the spacetime volume. This ansatz scales consistently into the infrared, and by straightforward functionalintegral methods implies the vanishing of the physical cosmological constant.
