In news:

Quantum entanglements unify the infinitesimal aspects of virtual particles into momentary states between existence and nonexistence, while precise cosmological constants undergird the multitudinous dimensions of space-time.

In science:

A are respectively the Euler characteristic and area of the tessellation (respectively measured via χ = #faces−#edges+#vertices and A = #tiles), and where N and g are the discrete counterparts of the Newton constant and cosmological constant.

T µν , the cosmological constant is not ’constant’.
Unimodular relativity and cosmological constant : Comments
While formally theories exist with a constant equation of state, they are nongeneric – Einstein’s cosmological constant is a notable exception.

As this acceleration could be brought about by an effective negative pressure, the first choice of candidate for this ‘dark energy’ had been the ‘cosmological constant’ or a time varying cosmological parameter Λ(t).
Acceleration of the universe with a simple trigonometric potential
Most simply, if the current acceleration of the Universe is caused by a cosmological constant, then w = −1 is constant with time.

A simple varying-speed-of-light hypothesis is enough for explaining high-redshift supernovae data
Let’s consider the possible classical behaviors of cosmological geometry assuming the ‘no-boundary’ quantum state of the universe in a theory with only gravity and a cosmological constant Λ.

Universe, where the dark energy has been assumed to have a constant equation of state with w = −1, as is the case for a cosmological constant.

To avoid semantical misinterpretation we note that we consider a cosmology with Einsteinian cosmological constant.
A Reply to a Comment on "Dark matter: A phenomenological existence proof"
As such we stand by our conclusion that if the universe is described by a spatially flat Friedmann-Robertson-Walker (FRW) cosmology with Einsteinian cosmological constant then the resulting cosmology predicts a significant dark matter component in the universe.

Namely, even for maximally symmetric cosmologies filled purely with dust the past radii/scales of the Universe R(t), so the past distances xi and redshifts zi depend on the cosmologic constant which belongs to the Law of Gravity not to Matter, so it is not directly observable.
On a Possible Indicator of Homogeneity of the Universe
The “parameters” (“z -region”) column gives the cosmological parameters (the redshift region) which are the most efficient to distinguish the DE model from a cosmological constant.
