A cosmological prediction from the coupling constants of fundamental interactions

  • C. Sivaram
Letters to the Editor


The notion of gravitational charge is used to suggest a link in the Machian sense between fundamental interactions and cosmology. The observed values of the coupling constants of these interactions then give a definite value for the total mass of the Universe.
