Description

We present a cosmological model where the cosmological constant is a topological invariant. The cosmological constant is derived from the curvature of exotic $R^4$ embedded in $K3\# \overline{\mathbb{C}P^2}$. Both of the manifolds are perfectly smooth however the 3-diemnsional slices they generate contain topological changes. Then the value of cosmological constant is expressed via Chern-Simons, volume, and Euler invariants of the 3-submanifolds. Moreover, this cosmological model predicts realistically the neutrino masses and inflation parameters, including Starobinsky potential and the number of e-folds.
