This hypothesis is strengthened by recent results in unimodular gravity, which several authors have argued solves the longstanding problem of the cosmological constant — something that is necessary for a large classical space—time to emerge.

Let R be a unimodular (unit determinant) orthogonal matrix, then we define a inverse matrix appears here (acting on a column vector) in order to assure that this map of rotation matrices to rotation operators is a Wigner's famous book on group theory,

As a quick corollary, one recovers a classical theorem of Minkowski that any measurable subset A of of measure less than 1 is avoided by at least one unimodular lattice (just apply the above identity with
