We investigate the boson star with the self-interacting scalar field as a model of galactic halos. The model has slightly increasing rotation curves and allows wider ranges of the mass($m$) and coupling($\lambda$) of the halo dark matter particle than the non-interacting model previously suggested(ref.\cite{sin1}). Two quantities are related by $\lambda^{\frac{1}{2}} (m_p/m)^2\st{>}{\sim} 10^{50}$.

Steady states in dual-cascade wave turbulence

We study stationary solutions in the differential kinetic equation, which was introduced in Dyachenko A et al (1992 Physica D 57 96–160) for description of a local dual cascade wave turbulence. We

Scalar field dark matter with a cosh potential, revisited

Dark matter models in which the constituent particle is an ultra-light boson have become part of the mainstream discussion in cosmology and astrophysics. At the classical level, the models are

Diffuse X-Ray and Gamma-Ray Limits on Boson Stars that Interact with Nuclei

Light bosonic dark matter can form gravitationally bound states known as boson stars. In this work, we explore a new signature of these objects interacting with the interstellar medium (ISM). We show

Testing multiflavored ultralight dark matter models with SPARC

We perform maximum likelihood estimates (MLEs) for single and double flavor ultralight dark matter (ULDM) models using the Spitzer Photometry and Accurate Rotation Curves (SPARC) database. These

Gravitationally bound states of two neutral fermions and a Higgs field can be parametrically lighter than their constituents

We analyze the localized states of a pair of neutral fermions interacting with a Higgs field and the metric of spacetime, extending the Einstein-Dirac formalism introduced by Finster, Smoller, and

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

Dark energy and dark matter in emergent gravity

We suggest that dark energy and dark matter may be a cosmic ouroboros of quantum gravity due to the coherent vacuum structure of spacetime. We apply the emergent gravity to a large $N$ matrix model

Cosmological constraints on the Multi Scalar Field Dark Matter model

The main aim of this paper is to provide cosmological constraints on the Multi Scalar Field Dark Matter model (MSFDM), in which we assume the dark matter is made up of different ultra-light scalar

Galactic model with a phase transition from dark matter to dark energy

This work continues the construction of a recently proposed model of dark matter stars. In this model, dark matter quanta are sterile massless particles that are emitted from the central regions of
