dc.description.abstract A number of solutions to the dark energy problem have been proposed in literature, the simplest is the cosmological constant A. The cosmological constant lacks theoretical explanation for its extremely small value, thus dark energy is more generally modelled as a quintessence scalar field rolling down a flat potential. en_ZA
