Scalar–tensor–vector gravity theory

- J. Moffat
- Physics
- 3 June 2005

A covariant scalar–tensor–vector gravity theory is developed which allows the gravitational constant G, a vector field coupling ω and the vector field mass μ to vary with space and time. The… Expand

Black holes in modified gravity (MOG)

- J. Moffat
- Physics
- 12 December 2014

The field equations for scalar–tensor–vector gravity (STVG) or modified gravity (MOG) have a static, spherically symmetric black hole solution determined by the mass $$M$$M with two horizons. The… Expand

Galaxy Rotation Curves without Nonbaryonic Dark Matter

- J. Brownstein, J. Moffat
- Physics
- 16 June 2005

We apply the modified acceleration law obtained from Einstein gravity coupled to a massive skew-symmetric field Fμνλ to the problem of explaining galaxy rotation curves without exotic dark matter.… Expand

200 11- PDF

The MOG weak field approximation and observational test of galaxy rotation curves

As an alternative to dark matter models, MOdified Gravity (MOG) theory can compensate for dark matter by a covariant modification of Einstein gravity. The theory introduces two additional scalar… Expand

SUPERLUMINARY UNIVERSE: A POSSIBLE SOLUTION TO THE INITIAL VALUE PROBLEM IN COSMOLOGY

- J. Moffat
- Physics
- 16 November 1992

The spontaneous breaking of local Lorentz invariance in the early Universe, associated with a first order phase transition at a critical time tc, generates a large increase in the speed of light and… Expand

Testing Modified Gravity with Globular Cluster Velocity Dispersions

Globular clusters (GCs) in the Milky Way have characteristic velocity dispersions that are consistent with the predictions of Newtonian gravity, and may be at odds with Modified Newtonian Dynamics… Expand

Gravitational solution to the Pioneer 10/11 anomaly

- J. Brownstein, J. Moffat
- Physics
- 6 November 2005

A fully relativistic modified gravitational theory including a fifth force skew-symmetric field is fitted to the Pioneer 10/11 anomalous acceleration. The theory allows for a variation with distance… Expand

Galaxy cluster masses without non-baryonic dark matter

- J. Brownstein, J. Moffat
- Physics
- 8 July 2005

We apply the modified acceleration law obtained from Einstein gravity coupled to a massive skew symmetric field, Fμνλ, to the problem of explaining X-ray galaxy cluster masses without exotic dark… Expand

A MODIFIED GRAVITY AND ITS CONSEQUENCES FOR THE SOLAR SYSTEM, ASTROPHYSICS AND COSMOLOGY

- J. Moffat
- Physics
- 15 August 2006

A relativistic modified gravity (MOG) theory leads to a self-consistent, stable gravity theory that can describe the solar system, galaxy and clusters-of-galaxies data, and cosmology.

The Bullet Cluster 1E0657-558 evidence shows modified gravity in the absence of dark matter

- J. Brownstein, J. Moffat
- Physics
- 6 February 2007

A detailed analysis of the 2006 November 15 data release X-ray surface density Σ-map and the strong and weak gravitational lensing convergence K-map for the Bullet Cluster 1E0657-558 is performed and… Expand
