We employ recently published measurements of the velocity dispersions in the newly discovered dwarf satellite galaxies of Andromeda to test our previously published predictions of this quantity. The data are in good agreement with our specific predictions for each dwarf made a priori with modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND), with reasonable stellar mass-to-light ratios, and no dark matter, while Newtonian dynamics point to quite large mass discrepancies in these systems. MOND distinguishes…

Milgromian dynamics and dwarf galaxies in galactic voids

We use kinematic data of 103 dwarf galaxies, obtained from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey catalog, to test the Milgromian dynamics (MOND) inside a galactic void. From this data, we compute the

Dissipative dark matter and the Andromeda plane of satellites

We show that dissipative dark matter can potentially explain the large observed mass to light ratio of the dwarf satellite galaxies that have been observed in the recently identified planar structure

MOND Calculations of Bulk Dispersions and Radial Dispersion Profiles of Milky Way and Andromeda Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxies

We present a new computational method for calculating the motion of stars in a dwarf spheroidal galaxy (dSph) that can use either Newtonian gravity or Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND). In our

Lessons from the Local Group (and beyond) on dark matter

The existence of exotic dark matter particles outside the standard model of particle physics constitutes a central hypothesis of the current standard model of cosmology (SMoC). Using a wide range of

MOND and the dynamics of NGC 1052−DF2

The dwarf galaxy NGC1052-DF2 has recently been identified as potentially lacking dark matter. If correct, this could be a challenge for MOND, which predicts that low surface brightness galaxies

MOND PREDICTION FOR THE VELOCITY DISPERSION OF THE “FEEBLE GIANT” CRATER II

Crater II is an unusual object among the dwarf satellite galaxies of the Local Group in that it has a very large size for its small luminosity. This provides a strong test of MOND, as Crater II

The MOND External Field Effect on Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxies

THE MOND EXTERNAL FIELD EFFECT ON DWARF SPHEROIDAL GALAXIES by Benjamin David Blankartz MOdified Newtonian Dynamics, or MOND, is an alternative to the dark matter paradigm which can be used to

A census of the expected properties of classical Milky Way dwarfs in Milgromian dynamics

Prompted by the recent successful predictions of the internal dynamics of Andromeda’s satellite galaxies, we revisit the classical Milky Way dwarf spheroidal satellites Draco, Sculptor, Sextans,

Predicted MOND velocity dispersions for a catalog of ultra-diffuse galaxies in group environments

The possibility that ultra-diffuse galaxies are lacking dark matter has recently stimulated interest to check the validity of modified Newton dynamics (MOND) predictions on the scale of such

Galaxy interactions: dark matter vs. Modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND)

(doctoral thesis of Michal Bilek, finished on June 19, 2015) MOND is an observational rule for predicting the acceleration of stars and galaxies from the distribution of the visible matter. It

ANDROMEDA DWARFS IN LIGHT OF MODIFIED NEWTONIAN DYNAMICS

We compare the recently published velocity dispersions for 17 Andromeda dwarf spheroidals with estimates of the modified Newtonian dynamics predictions, based on the luminosities of these dwarfs,

MOND and the Seven Dwarfs

Gerhard had recently analyzed the data on seven dwarf spheroidals, and concluded that these disagree with the predictions of MOND. We contend that this conclusion is anything but correct. With new

A vast, thin plane of corotating dwarf galaxies orbiting the Andromeda galaxy

TLDR
Radial velocity measurements reveal that the satellites in this structure have the same sense of rotation about their host, and shows conclusively that substantial numbers of dwarf satellite galaxies share the same dynamical orbital properties and direction of angular momentum.

Tidal dwarf galaxies as a test of fundamental physics

Within the cold dark matter (CDM) framework tidal dwarf galaxies (TDGs) cannot contain dark matter, so the recent results by Bournaud et al. (2007, Science, 316, 1166) that 3 rotating TDGs do show

Local Group dwarf spheroidal satellite galaxies are the faintest extragalactic stellar systems known. We examine recent data for these objects in the plane of the Baryonic Tully–Fisher Relation

Dwarf Satellite Galaxies in the Modified Dynamics

In the modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) the inner workings of dwarf satellites can be greatly affected by their mother galaxy—over and beyond tidal effects. Because of MOND's nonlinearity, a

We present a homogeneous kinematic analysis of red giant branch stars within 18 of the 28 Andromeda dwarf spheroidal (dSph) galaxies, obtained using the Keck I/LRIS and Keck II/DEIMOS spectrographs.

We apply the Jeans equation to estimate masses for eight of the brightest dwarf spheroidal (dSph) galaxies. For Fornax, the dSph with the largest kinematic data set, we obtain a model-independent

Can Photoionization Squelching Resolve the Substructure Crisis?

Cold dark matter theory predicts that the Local Group should contain many more dwarf-sized objects than the observed number of dwarf galaxies—the so-called substructure problem. We investigate
