The cosmological constant as a consequence of the evolution of space. (English. Russian original) Zbl 1380.83297

Russ. Phys. J. 59, No. 8, 1171-1180 (2016); translation from Izv. Vyssh. Uchebn. Zaved., Fiz. 59, No. 8, 40-48 (2016).
Summary: Conditions are considered in various approaches, determining the dimensionality of a space in which specific physical interactions are described. The dimensionality of the Universe does not necessarily have a fixed value. The cosmological constant is interpreted as the energy density being released in the remaining dimensions when the dimensionality of space is decreased.
