Abstract

The possibility that the vacuum energy density rho(Lambda) is, indeed, varying in time, has been investigated lately from the running vacuum models perspective. Motivated by such models, in this work, we relate the decaying vacuum energy rho(Lambda) (t) with a scalar field (phi). We derive the equations of motion from such a premise and implement the first-order formalism in order to obtain analytical solutions to the cosmological parameters. We show that these are in agreement with recent Planck observational data. We discuss the physical consequences of having rho(Lambda) (t) related to phi. (AU)
