Why is the Universe Accelerating?

Why is the Universe Accelerating? The universe appears to be accelerating, but the reason why is a complete mystery. The simplest explanation, a small vacuum energy (cosmological constant), raises three difficult issues; why the vacuum energy is so small, why it is not quite zero, and why it is comparable to the matter density today. I discuss these mysteries, some of their possible resolutions, and some issues confronting future observations. © 2004 American Institute of Physics; http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png AIP Conference Proceedings American Institute of Physics
