However, if for the description of the metastable state at the electroweak scale we replace the Friedman-Robertson-Walker spacetime with the Einstein static universe
model, the strong static gravitational potential leads to the effective reduction of the Higgs vacuum expectation value, which is found to be compatible with the first-order electroweak phase transition conditions.
The Einstein static universe
model corresponds to a special case of the black hole universe model.
Expanding away from the Einstein static universe
. Running the program with [H.sub.0] = 80, [[Omega].sub.0] = 1, and the critical value for [[Omega].sub.[Lambda]] (2.5980762114 in this case) gives a universe with an infinite age and a past behavior that approximates the static universe Einstein envisioned.
