The Contribution of the Cosmological Constant to the Relativistic Bending of Light Revisited

Wolfgang Rindler, Mustapha Ishak (The University of Texas at Dallas)

5 pages, 2 figures

(Submitted on 19 Sep 2007)

"We study the effect of the cosmological constant Lambda on the bending of light by a concentrated spherically symmetric mass. Contrarily to previous claims, we show that when the Schwarzschild-de Sitter geometry is taken into account, Lambda does indeed contribute to the bending."
