In this paper, we search for correlations between the intrinsic properties of galaxies and the Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) under a scalar field dark matter (SFDM) at temperature of condensation greater than zero. According to this paradigm the BEC is distributed in several states. Based on the galactic rotation curves collected in SPARC dataset, we observe that SFDM parameters present a weak correlation with most of the galaxy properties, having only a correlation with those related to…

Testing Bose–Einstein condensate dark matter models with the SPARC galactic rotation curves data

The nature of one of the fundamental components of the Universe, the dark matter, is still unknown. One interesting possibility is that dark matter could exist in the form of a self-interacting

Galaxy rotation curves using a non-parametric regression method: core, cuspy and fuzzy scalar field dark matter models

A non-parametric reconstruction of the rotation curves (RCs) for 88 spiral galaxies using the LOESS (locally weighted scatterplot smoothing) + SIMEX (simulation and extrapolation) technique and a model selection according to the Bayesian information criterion, resulting in soliton as the best model.

Stability analysis and constraints on interacting viscous cosmology

In this work we study the evolution of a spatially flat Universe by considering a viscous dark matter and perfect fluids for dark energy and radiation, including an interaction term between dark

Cosmological constraints on alternative model to Chaplygin fluid revisited

In this work we explore an alternative phenomenological model to Chaplygin gas proposed by Hova et al. (Int J Mod Phys D 26:1750178, 2017), consisting on a modification of a perfect fluid, to explain

Testing Noncommutativity-Like Model as a Galactic Density Profile

Noncommutative-like model (NC-like) is an interesting alternative inspired by string theory to understand and describe the velocity rotation curves of galaxies without the inclusion of dark matter



Flat central density profile and constant dark matter surface density in galaxies from scalar field dark matter

Using the scalar field dark matter (SFDM) model, it is proposed that galaxies form by con- densation of a scalar field (SF) very early in the Universe, forming Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) drops

Bosonic gas as a galactic dark matter halo

We study in detail the properties of gravitationally bounded multistate configurations, made of spin-zero bosons, in the Newtonian regime. We show that the properties of such configurations, in

Bose-Einstein condensation of dark matter solves the core/cusp problem

We analyze the observed properties of dwarf galaxies, which are dark matter dominated astrophysical objects, by assuming that dark matter is in the form of a strongly - coupled, dilute Bose -

On wave dark matter in spiral and barred galaxies

We recover spiral and barred spiral patterns in disk galaxy simulations with a Wave Dark Matter (WDM) background (also known as Scalar Field Dark Matter (SFDM), Ultra-Light Axion (ULA) dark matter,

Mass-Discrepancy Acceleration Relation: A Natural Outcome of Galaxy Formation in Cold Dark Matter Halos.

Analysis of the total and baryonic acceleration profiles of a set of well-resolved galaxies identified in the eagle suite of hydrodynamic simulations finds that galaxies exhibit a characteristic acceleration g_{†}, above which baryons dominate the mass budget, as observed.

Testing dark matter halos using rotation curves and lensing: A warning on the determination of the halo mass

There are two observations of galaxies that can offer some insight into the nature of dark matter (DM), namely, the rotation curves and the gravitational lensing. While the first one can be studied

On the mass of ultra-light bosonic dark matter from galactic dynamics

We consider the hypothesis that galactic dark matter is composed of ultra-light scalar particles and use internal properties of dwarf spheroidal galaxies to establish a preferred range for the mass m

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 cold dark matter (CDM) model has two unsolved issues: simulations overpredict the satellite abundance around the Milky Way (MW) and it disagrees with observations of the central densities of

The cored distribution of dark matter in spiral galaxies

We present the Hi data for 5 spiral galaxies that, along with their Hα rotation curves, are used to derive the distribution of dark matter within these objects. A new method for extracting rotation
