@article{Gergely2011GalacticRC, title={Galactic rotation curves in brane world models}, author={L'aszl'o 'A. Gergely and Tiberiu Harko and Marek Dwornik and G'abor Kupi and Zolt{\'a}n Keresztes}, journal={Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society}, year={2011}, volume={415}, pages={3275-3290} }

In the brane world scenario the four-dimensional effective Einstein equation has extra source terms, which arise from the embedding of the three-brane in the bulk. These non-local effects, generated by the free gravitational field of the bulk, may provide an explanation for the dynamics of the neutral hydrogen clouds at large distances from the galactic centre, which is usually explained by postulating the existence of the dark matter. In the present paper we consider the asymptotic behaviour…
