Space-time as Dark Energy and Dark Matter

Nalin de Silva, Kumudumalee Jayakody, Hemantha Don Maddumage, Wasantha Katugampala


In this paper we modify Einstein’s field equations, and write down the cosmological term and the metric tensor as an energy momentum tensor of space-time,and interpret space-time as a form of energy, not vacuum energy as such.The energy momentum tensor of space-time has equivalents of both mass and pressure components.The acceleration of the universe, Dark Energy and Dark Matter are explained in terms of the energy momentum tensor of space-time.


Space-time energy momentum tensor; Space-time as energy; Einstein’s field equations; Dark Energy; Dark Matter; Universe with acceleration.
