The multiverse as a function of the cosmological constant
Comments: 32 pages, 1 figure

We study the multiverse in a model-independent manner (i.e., without the presence of the cosmological constant) and show that the multiverse is a function of the cosmological constant. We explain how multiverse scales are determined, in which case the multiverse is a function of the cosmological constant. The scalar-tensor principle is used to show that the multiverse is a function of the cosmological constant and that the cosmological constant is a function of the curvature of the universe. The cosmological constant and the curvature of the universe are unary functions in the multiverse, and the multiverse scales depend on the cosmological constant. The multiverse scales are defined by the cosmological constant and curvature of the universe, and are in agreement with the Planck data.
