We show that Dark Matter consisting of bosons of mass of about 1eV or less has critical temperature exceeding the temperature of the universe at all times, and hence would have formed a Bose-Einstein condensate at very early epochs. We also show that the wavefunction of this condensate, via the quantum potential it produces, gives rise to a cosmological constant which may account for the correct dark energy content of our universe. We argue that massive gravitons or axions are viable candidates…

A Unified Cosmological Dark Sector from a Bose-Einstein Condensate
We examine the viability of cosmological solution(s) describing a unified picture of the dark side of the universe from a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) of light bosons. The energy density of the BEC,
Bose-Einstein condensation as an alternative to inflation
It was recently shown that gravitons with a very small mass should have formed a Bose-Einstein condensate in the very early Universe, whose density and quantum potential can account for the dark
Supplying dark energy from scalar field dark matter
We consider the hypothesis that dark matter (DM) and dark energy (DE) consist of ultra-light self-interacting scalar particles. It is found that the Klein–Gordon equation with only two free
Dark Matter as a Non-Relativistic Bose-Einstein Condensate with Massive Gravitons
We confront a non-relativistic Bose–Einstein Condensate (BEC) model of light bosons interacting gravitationally either through a Newtonian or a Yukawa potential with the observed rotational curves of
Dark matter is a manifestation of the vacuum Bose-Einstein condensate
The vorticity equation stemming from the modified Navier-Stokes equation gives a solution for a flat profile of the orbital speed of spiral galaxies. Solutions disclose existence of the Gaussian
Description of the properties of dark matter by deformed statistics
We consider the condensate of q-deformed bosons as a model of dark matter. Our observations demonstrate that for all q values, the system condenses below a q-dependent critical temperature Tcq . The
Stueckelberg Bosons as ultralight dark matter candidate
In this letter, we propose a new model of fuzzy dark matter based on Stueckelberg theory. Dark matter is treated as a Bose-Einstein condensate of Stueckelberg particles and the resulting cosmological
Deriving the dark matter-dark energy interaction term in the continuity equation from the Boltzmann equation
Dark energy and dark matter are two of the biggest mysteries of modern cosmology, and our understanding of their fundamental nature is incomplete. Many parameterizations of couplings between the two
Galactic dynamics and long-range quantum gravity
We explore in a systematic way the possibility that long-range quantum gravity effects could play a role at galactic scales and could be responsible for the phenomenology commonly attributed to dark
Bose-Einstein graviton condensate in a Schwarzschild black hole
We analyze in detail a previous proposal by Dvali and Gomez that black holes could be treated as consisting of a Bose-Einstein condensate of gravitons. In order to do so we extend the


Cosmological Inhomogeneities with Bose-Einstein Condensate Dark Matter
We consider the growth of cosmological perturbations to the energy density of dark matter during matter domination when dark matter is a scalar field that has undergone Bose-Einstein condensation. We
Cosmological evolution of finite temperature Bose-Einstein condensate dark matter
Once the temperature of a bosonic gas is smaller than the critical, density dependent, transition temperature, a Bose-Einstein condensation process can take place during the cosmological evolution of
Fuzzy cold dark matter: the wave properties of ultralight particles.
These problems might be solved, and the virtues of CDM models retained, even without postulating ad hoc dark matter particle or field interactions, if the dark matter is composed of ultralight scalar particles initially in a (cold) Bose-Einstein condensate, similar to axion dark matter models.
The Relativistic Gross-Pitaevskii Equation and Cosmological Bose-Einstein Condensation : Quantum Structure in the Universe
We do not know the identity of 96% of the total matter in the universe at present. In this paper, a cosmological model is proposed in which dark energy (DE) is identified with the Bose-Einstein

Growth of perturbations in an expanding universe with Bose-Einstein condensate dark matter
We study the growth of perturbations in an expanding Newtonian universe with Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) dark matter. We first ignore special relativistic effects and derive a differential

A cosmological model treating dark matter as a coherent quantum wave agrees well with conventional dark-matter theory on an astronomical scale. But on smaller scales, the quantum nature of wave-like
