I wonder if symmetry breaking of the U(1)SU(2)SU(3) symmetries of the standard model have anything to do with the calculation of the cosmological constant. Do we assume that the symmetries are broken or unbroken in the current calculation of the CC? As I recall, one way symmetry is broken in the SM is by changes in the potentials in the lagrangian. And I suppose that setting the potentials to zero or a constant value would change the calculation of the CC. I wonder if this would be enough to account for the 120 orders of magnitude between calculated and observed values of the CC. Any thoughts on the subject would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
