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 equations of motion for a test particle lead to a modified gravitational acceleration law that can fit galaxy rotation curves and cluster data without non-baryonic dark… (More)
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.
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 scales of the gravitational constant G, the fifth force skew symmetric field coupling strength ω and the mass of the skew symmetric field µ = 1/λ. A fit to the… (More)
The dynamical consequences of a bimetric scalar-tensor theory of gravity with a dy-namical light speed are investigated in a cosmological setting. The model consists of a minimally-coupled self-gravitating scalar field coupled to ordinary matter fields in the standard way through the metric: gµν +B∂µφ∂νφ. We show that in a universe with matter that has a… (More)
The spontaneous breaking of local Lorentz invariance in the early Universe, associated with a first order phase transition at a critical time t c , generates a large increase in the speed of light and a superluminary communication of information occurs, allowing all regions in the Universe to be causally connected. This solves the horizon problem, leads to… (More)
A gravity theory is developed with the metricˆg µν = g µν +B∂ µ φ∂ ν φ. In the present universe the additional contribution from the scalar field in the metricˆg µν can generate an acceleration in the expansion of the universe, without negative pressure and with a zero cosmological constant. In this theory, gravitational waves will propagate at a different… (More)
The gravitational wave solutions obtained from a perturbation about confor-mally flat backgrounds in Einstein gravity are investigated. A perturbation theory analysis of the Lesame, Ellis and Dunsby results, based on a covari-ant approach, shows that for gravitational waves interacting with irrotational dust, the equations are linearization unstable. The… (More)
Gravitational lensing in a modified gravity (MOG) is derived and shown to describe lensing without postulating dark matter. The recent data for merging clusters identified with the interacting cluster 1E0657-56 is shown to be consistent with a weak lensing construction based on MOG without exotic dark matter.
The nonsymmetric gravitational theory leads to a modified acceleration law that can at intermediate distance ranges account for the anomalous acceleration experienced by the Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft.
A vector-tensor theory of gravity that was introduced in an earlier publication is analyzed in detail and its consequences for early universe cosmology are examined. The multiple light cone structure of the theory generates different speeds of gravitational and matter wave fronts, and the contraction of these light cones produces acausal, super-luminary… (More)
