If we were to assume that in a Robertson-Walker model that the cosmological constant was less than zero, would this imply that at a finite time in the future the universe would undergo a "big crunch"? More importantly, would this imply the scale factor a(t) is equal to zero at that time?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
