Generalized uncertainty principle and white dwarfs redux: How the cosmological constant protects the Chandrasekhar limit

Abstract [en]

It was previously argued that generalized uncertainty principle (GUP) with a positive parameter removes the Chandrasekhar limit. One way to restore the limit is by taking the GUP parameter to be negative. In this work we discuss an alternative method that achieves the same effect: by including a cosmological constant term in the GUP (known as extended GUP in the literature). We show that an arbitrarily small but nonzero cosmological constant can restore the Chandrasekhar limit. We also remark that if the extended GUP is correct, then the existence of white dwarfs gives an upper bound for the cosmological constant, which-while still large compared to observation-is approximately 86 orders of magnitude smaller than the natural scale.
