It is usually believed that MOND can describe the galactic rotational curves with only baryonic matter and without any dark matter very well, while the $\Lambda$CDM model is expected to have difficulty in reproducing MOND-like behavior. Here, we use EAGLE's data to learn whether the $\Lambda$CDM model can reproduce MOND-like behavior. EAGLE's simulation result clearly reproduces the MOND-like behavior for $a_b\gtrapprox 10^{-12}\text{m/s}^2$ at $z=0$, although the acceleration constant, $a_0…

Investigating Dark Matter and MOND Models with Galactic Rotation Curve Data

We study geometries of galactic rotation curves from Dark Matter (DM) and Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND) models in $(g_{\rm bar},g_{\rm tot})$-space ($g2$-space) where $g_{\rm tot}$ is the total

A toy model for the dynamical discrepancies on galactic scales

In this study a simple toy model solution to the missing gravity problem on galactic scales is reverse engineered from galactic data via imposing broad assumptions. It is shown that the toy model

Sensitivity of primordial black hole abundance on the reheating phase

We investigate the sensitivity of reheating history on the abundance of primordial black holes (PBHs). Contrary to the monochromatic case of mass fraction of PBH, reheating era with different

A first attempt to differentiate between modified gravity and modified inertia with galaxy rotation curves

The phenomenology of modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) on galaxy scales may point to more fundamental theories of either modified gravity (MG) or modified inertia (MI). In this paper, we test the



Relativistic gravitation theory for the MOND paradigm

The modified newtonian dynamics (MOND) paradigm of Milgrom can boast of a number of successful predictions regarding galactic dynamics; these are made without the assumption that dark matter plays a

The EAGLE project: Simulating the evolution and assembly of galaxies and their environments

We introduce the Virgo Consortium's EAGLE project, a suite of hydrodynamical simulations that follow the formation of galaxies and black holes in representative volumes. We discuss the limitations of

Novel test of modified Newtonian dynamics with gas rich galaxies.

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.

Baryon effects on the internal structure of ΛCDM haloes in the EAGLE simulations

We investigate the internal structure and density profiles of haloes of mass 1010–1014 M⊙ in the Evolution and Assembly of Galaxies and their Environment (EAGLE) simulations. These follow the

We present results from thirteen cosmological simulations that explore the parameter space of the "Evolution and Assembly of GaLaxies and their Environments" (EAGLE) simulation project. Four of the
