Dark energy and dark matter constitute 95% of the observable Universe. Yet the physical nature of these two phenomena remains a mystery. Einstein suggested a long-forgotten solution: gravitationally repulsive negative masses, which drive cosmic expansion and cannot coalesce into light-emitting structures. However, contemporary cosmological results are derived upon the reasonable assumption that the Universe only contains positive masses. By reconsidering this assumption, I have constructed a…

Can a negative-mass cosmology explain dark matter and dark energy?
A recent study by Farnes (2018, A&A, 620, A92) proposed an alternative cosmological model in which both dark matter and dark energy are replaced with a single fluid of negative mass. This paper
Neutrino Star Cosmology
The ΛCDM model successfully models the expansion of matter in the universe with an expansion of the underlying metric. However, it does not address the physical origin of the big bang and dark
An Alternative to the Dark Matter? Part 2: A Close Universe (10-9 s to 3 Gy), Galaxies and Structures Formation
A cosmological model was developed using the equation of state of photon gas, as well as cosmic time. The primary objective of this model is to see if determining the observed rotation speed of
Fermi Degenerate Antineutrino Star Model of Dark Energy
When the Large Hadron Collider resumes operations in 2021, several experiments will directly measure the motion of antihydrogen in free fall for the first time. Our current understanding of the
Analysis of repulsive central universal force field on solar and galactic dynamics
Abstract Recent astrophysical observations hint toward the need for an extended theory of gravity to explain puzzles presented by the standard cosmological model such as the need for dark matter and
Fundamental Positive-Negative Nature of Energy Sweepingly Addresses Current Problems in Cosmology
A novel and comprehensive ‘Dual-Energy’ Cosmological model (DEC) is shown to emerge from one principle. It sweepingly addresses problems in the current ΛCDM model from an initial singularity to dark
Extended logotropic fluids as unified dark energy models
We study extended classes of logotropic fluids as unified dark energy models. Under the hypothesis of the Anton–Schmidt scenario, we consider a universe obeying a single fluid model with a
Gravitational Merging as a Possible Source for the Cosmological Accelerating
Gravitational merging (or clustering) of cosmic objects is regarded as a possible source of the extra-acceleration of the universe at large scale. The merging/clustering of cosmic objects introduces
Theory of the Stationary Self-Consistent Universe
Since the creation of GR and subsequent works in cosmology, the question of the curvature of space in the Universe is considered one of the most important and debated to this day. This is evident,
On energy condition violation for shifting negative mass black holes
In this paper, we introduce the study of a new solution to gravitational singularities by violating the energy conditions of the Penrose Hawking singularity theorems. We consider that a shift to


Introducing the Dirac-Milne universe
The ΛCDM standard model, although an excellent parametrization of the present cosmological data, contains two as yet unobserved components, dark matter and dark energy, that constitute more than 95%
Thermodynamics of cosmological matter creation.
A type of cosmological history that includes large-scale entropy production is proposed. These cosmologies are based on reinterpretation of the matter-energy stress tensor in Einstein's equations.
Negative mass hypothesis in cosmology and the nature of dark energy
The observed acceleration of the universe arises a puzzling question. What is the nature of a dark energy that would cause this phenomenon? We recall the arguments against the existence of negative
Negative Energy Cosmology and the Cosmological Constant
It is well known that string theories naturally compactify on anti-de Sitter spaces, and yet cosmological observations show no evidence of a negative cosmological constant in the early Universe's
Einstein’s Theory of Gravity and the Problem of Missing Mass
It emerges that theories of modified gravity remain viable but have become more complex, involving gravitating invisible elements, and the presence of dark fields reduces calculability and comes at the expense of the original MOND premise, that the matter the authors see is the sole source of gravity.
Cosmological structure formation with negative mass
We construct a family of models with negative gravitational mass in the context of Newtonian gravity. We focus, in particular, on a model that reproduces the features of the so-called Dirac-Milne
The Structure of Dark Matter Halos in Dwarf Galaxies
Recent observations indicate that dark matter halos have flat central density profiles. Cosmological simulations with nonbaryonic dark matter, however, predict self-similar halos with central density
Negative mass in general relativity
Mechanics is considered in a universe containing negative mass. Demanding (i) conservation of momentum, (ii) principle of equivalence, (iii) no runaway motions, (iv) no Schwarzschild black holes, and
A phantom menace? Cosmological consequences of a dark energy component with super-negative equation of state
Abstract It is extraordinary that a number of observations indicate that we live in a spatially flat, low matter density Universe, which is currently undergoing a period of accelerating expansion.
Simulations of the formation, evolution and clustering of galaxies and quasars
It is shown that baryon-induced features in the initial conditions of the Universe are reflected in distorted form in the low-redshift galaxy distribution, an effect that can be used to constrain the nature of dark energy with future generations of observational surveys of galaxies.
