1. | Description of both these stages in the Universe evolution in the frame of a single self-consistent theoretical scheme is possible by introducing a cosmological term with the reduced symmetry, ${p}_{r}=-\rho $ $({T}_{t}^{t}={T}_{r}^{r})$ which represents the time-dependent and spatially inhomogeneous vacuum dark energy. Relaxation of the cosmological constant from the initial big value to the presently observed value can be described in general setting by the spherically symmetric cosmology of the Lemaître class ([76,77] and references therein). |
