Prediction for the Cosmological Constant and Constraints on SUSY GUTS: Status Report for Resummed Quantum Gravity
Abstract
We give a status report on the theory of resummed quantum gravity. We recapitulate the use of our resummed quantum gravity approach to Einstein's general theory of relativity to estimate the value of the cosmological constant as $\rho_\Lambda=(0.0024{\mathrm{eV}})^4$. The estimate is made in the context of the Planck scale cosmology formulation of Bonanno and Reuter. We discuss the constraints on susy GUT models that follow from the closeness of the estimate to experiment. Various consistency checks on the calculation are addressed and we use the Heisenberg uncertainty principle to remove a large part of the remaining uncertainty in our estimate of $\rho_\Lambda$.
