An Exact Scalar Field Inflationary Cosmological Model Which Solves Cosmological Constant Problem, Dark Matter Problem and Other Problems of Inflationary Cosmology


An exact scalar field cosmological model is constructed from the exact solution of the field equations. The solutions are exact and no approximation like slow roll is used. The model gives inflation, solves horizon and flatness problems. The model also gives a satisfactory estimate of present vacuum energy density as well as vacuum energy density at Planck epoch and solves cosmological constant problem of 120 orders of magnitude discrepancy of vacuum energy density. Further, this model predicts existence of dark matter/energy and gives an extremely accurate estimate of present energy density of dark matter and energy. Along with explanations of graceful exit, radiation era, matter domination, this model also indicates the reason for present accelerated state of the universe. In this work a method is shown following which one can construct an infinite number of exact scalar field inflationary cosmological models.
