We construct an effective model for gravity of a central object at large scales. To leading order in the large radius expansion we find a cosmological constant, a Rindler acceleration, a term that sets the physical scales, and subleading terms. All these terms are expected from general relativity, except for the Rindler term. The latter leads to an anomalous acceleration in geodesics of test particles.

Conformal Cosmology and the Pioneer Anomaly
We review the fundamental results of a new cosmological model, based on conformal gravity, and apply them to the analysis of the early data of the Pioneer anomaly. We show that our conformalExpand
New exact solutions for Schwarzschild-like black holes
We use the so called mass function method for obtaining new exact solutions for Schwarzschild-like black holes. The mass function is algebraic invariant for general spherically symmetric metric.Expand
Canonical charges and asymptotic symmetries in four dimensional conformal gravity
We calculate canonical charges in four dimensional conformal gravity using the generalised boundary conditions presented in \cite{Grumiller:2013mxa}. We show that the charges are finite andExpand
Recent further research regarding the theory of inertial centers ( unpublished )
Our geodesic equation is given by (see (72) of [1]) 0 = U a ∇ a U b To find solutions, we start by expressing this equation in terms of Minkowski coordinates (T, X, Y, Z), where the spatialExpand
Re-Examination of Globally Flat Space-Time
A novel approach to modeling the observed effects currently attributed to the theoretical concepts of ‘dark energy,’ “dark matter,” and “ dark flow” is offered, and what is considered to be inertial motion as well as what constitutes an inertial frame of reference in flat space-time is redefined.

Galactic Scaling Rules in a Modified Dynamical Model
Schulz galactic scaling rules [1], which include baryonic Tully-Fisher relation, have been surveyed in this work within the context of a modified dynamical model. These scaling relations are derivedExpand
Solar system constraints on a Rindler-type extra-acceleration from modified gravity at large distances
We analytically work out the orbital effects caused by a Rindler-type extra- acceleration ARin which naturally arises in some recent models of modified gravity at large distances. In particular, weExpand
Near-horizon geometry and warped conformal symmetry
A bstractWe provide boundary conditions for three-dimensional gravity including boosted Rindler spacetimes, representing the near-horizon geometry of non-extremal black holes or flat spaceExpand
Central Field in Rotating Spherical Space in 5D
A t ime-like geodesic motion in rotating 5D space is studied in framework of Kaluza-Klein theory and astrophysical applications are proposed. For example of such space-time in 4D sphericalExpand
Conformally Friedmann–Lemaître–Robertson–Walker cosmologies
In a Universe where, according to the standard cosmological models, some 97% of the total mass-energy is still 'missing in action', it behooves us to spend at least a little effort criticallyExpand
