Fermions are obviously important from a practical point of view, though a little complication is unavoidable, as is sketched in section 5. Section 6 is devoted to an intriguing 37 38 The prototype Brans–Dicke model discussion on the field mixing, as well as the role played by the nonminimal coupling term. 12) re-expressed in our own notation: √ L = −g 12 ξφ2 R − 12 g µν ∂µ φ ∂ν φ + Lmatter . 3) where = Sign ω, so that ξ is always positive. We point out again that the matter Lagrangian Lmatter is assumed not to contain φ.

3 Comments 29 The Einstein–Hilbert term fails to respect this scale invariance, or dilatation symmetry. The same is true also for the possible mass term of φ, if there is one. One would thus be convinced that this invariance is truly unique to the prototype BD model. No extension of the nonminimal coupling term beyond ξφ2 is allowed without losing this invariance. This observation is in fact a key to understanding why string theory provides a candidate for the scalar–tensor theory. In Chapter 6 we discuss how this invariance can be broken first spontaneously, then explicitly, and hence how the scalar field can acquire a nonzero mass.

We show, however, that this is not the case. 81) where we have discarded the choice of an increasing G(t). 1 . 1 is obviously outside the range for which the LNH works. 80). For this reason we judge that the LNH is now completely ruled out. Is there then any alternative way to understand very large or small numbers in nature? 26 × 10−44 . 74, certainly of the order of unity. This kind of nonperturbative dependence on a coupling constant has also been suggested [51, 52] without invoking the age of the universe.
