A fine balance between dark and baryonic mass is observed in spiral galaxies. As the contribution of the baryons to the total rotation velocity increases, the contribution of the dark matter decreases by a compensating amount. This poses a fine-tuning problem for galaxy formation models, and may point to new physics for dark matter particles or even a modification of gravity. 
Radial Acceleration Relation in Rotationally Supported Galaxies.
TLDR
A correlation between the radial acceleration traced by rotation curves and that predicted by the observed distribution of baryons is reported, tantamount to a natural law for rotating galaxies. Expand
Gravity mass instead of dark matter
We showed that the massive effect of gravitational potential is equivalent to dark matter that should be added to newtonian dynamic to solve the cosmological problems. We constructed mass formulae inExpand

TLDR
A test using gas rich galaxies for which both axes of the BTFR can be measured independently of the theories being tested and without the systematic uncertainty in stellar mass that affects the same test with star dominated spirals is reported. Expand
Insight into the baryon-gravity relation in galaxies
Observations of spiral galaxies strongly support a one-to-one analytical relation between the inferred gravity of dark matter at any radius and the enclosed baryonic mass. It is baffling that baryonsExpand
Dark galactic halos without dark matter
Using standard Einstein theory, baryonic mass cannot account for observed galactic rotation velocities and gravitational lensing, attributed to galactic dark matter halos. In contrast, theoryExpand
The Third Law of Galactic Rotation
I review the connection between dynamics and the baryonic mass distribution in rotationally supported galaxies. The enclosed dynamical mass-to-light ratio increases with decreasing galaxy luminosityExpand
Constraining TeVeS Gravity as Effective Dark Matter and Dark Energy
The phenomena customly described with the standard $\Lambda$CDM model are broadly reproduced by an extremely simple model in TeVeS, Bekenstein's (2004) modification of General Relativity motivated byExpand
THE BARYONIC TULLY-FISHER RELATION OF GAS-RICH GALAXIES AS A TEST OF ΛCDM AND MOND
The baryonic Tully-Fisher relation (BTFR) is an empirical relation between baryonic mass and rotation velocity in disk galaxies. It provides tests of galaxy formation models in ΛCDM and ofExpand
Reconciling MOND and dark matter
Observations of galaxies suggest a one-to-one analytic relation between the inferred gravity of dark matter at any radius and the enclosed baryonic mass, a relation summarized by Milgrom's law ofExpand
Understanding disk galaxy rotation velocities without dark matter contribution--a physical process for MOND?
An impact model of gravity designed to emulate Newton's law of gravitation is applied to the radial acceleration of disk galaxies. Based on this model (Wilhelm et al. 2013), the rotation velocityExpand

Model for gravitational interaction between dark matter and baryons.
TLDR
A phenomenological model where the gravitational interaction between dark matter and baryons is suppressed on small, subgalactic scales is proposed and the gravitational force is described by adding a Yukawa contribution to the standard Newtonian potential. Expand
A Dearth of Dark Matter in Ordinary Elliptical Galaxies
The kinematics of the outer parts of three intermediate-luminosity elliptical galaxies were studied with the Planetary Nebula Spectrograph. The galaxies' velocity-dispersion profiles were found toExpand
Observational evidence for self-interacting cold dark matter
TLDR
Astronomical observations may enable us to study dark matter properties that are inaccessible in the laboratory if the cold dark matter particles are self-interacting with a large scattering cross section but negligible annihilation or dissipation. Expand

Response of Dark Matter Halos to Condensation of Baryons: Cosmological Simulations and Improved Adiabatic Contraction Model
The cooling of gas in the centers of dark matter halos is expected to lead to a more concentrated dark matter distribution. The response of dark matter to the condensation of baryons is usuallyExpand

Abstract We show that massive sterile neutrinos mixed with the ordinary ones may be produced in the early universe in the right amount to be natural warm dark matter particles. Their mass should beExpand
