Neighboring Galaxies' Influence on Rotation Curve Asymmetry

  title={Neighboring Galaxies' Influence on Rotation Curve Asymmetry},
  author={John C. Hodge and Michael W. Castelaz},
The rotation velocity asymmetry v observed in spiral galaxy HI rotation curves linearly correlates with the effective potential force from the 10 closest neighboring galaxies normalized for the test particle mass and the gravitational constant. The magnitude of the potential force from a close galaxy is proportional to the luminosity of the close galaxy and inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the close galaxy to the target galaxy. The correlation coefficient is 0.99 and F… Expand

Supernovae Ia (SNe Ia) light curves have been used to prove the universe is expanding. As standard candles, SNe Ia appear to indicate the rate of expansion has increased in the past and is nowExpand
Scalar Theory of Everything (STOE) unites the big, the small, and the four forces (GUT) by extending Newton’s model
Newton established a major physics advance which was confirmed by predicting the late return of Halley's comet. Newton identified three characteristics of bodies that have been identified as threeExpand
