We propose a unified single-field description of the galactic Dark Matter and various uniform scalar fields for the inflation and cosmological constant. The two types of effects could originate from a fluid of both spatially and temporally varying Vacuum Energy if the vacuum has an uneven pressure caused by a photon-like vector field (of perhaps an unstable massive boson). We propose a most general Lagrangian with a {\bf N}on-{\bf u}niform Cosmological Constant for this vacuum fluid (dubbed as… 

AN UNEVEN VACUUM ENERGY FLUID AS Λ, DARK MATTER, MOND AND LENS

Various TeVeS-inspired and f(R)-inspired theories of gravity have added an interesting twist to the search for dark matter and vacuum energy, modifying the landscape of astrophysics day by day. These

DARK FLUID: A UNIFIED FRAMEWORK FOR MODIFIED NEWTONIAN DYNAMICS, DARK MATTER, AND DARK ENERGY

Empirical theories of dark matter (DM) like modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) gravity and of dark energy (DE) like f(R) gravity were motivated by astronomical data. But could these theories be

DARK FLUID: TOWARDS A UNIFICATION OF EMPIRICAL THEORIES OF GALAXY ROTATION, INFLATION AND DARK ENERGY

Empirical theories of Dark Matter like MOND gravity and of Dark Energy like f(R) gravity were motivated by astronomical data. But could these theories be branches rooted from a more general hence

Are Dark Matter and Dark Energy Opposite Effects of the Quantum Vacuum

In the standard model of cosmology, λCDM, were introduced to explain the anomalies of the orbital velocities of galaxies in clusters highest according estimated by General Relativity the dark matter

An ecological approach to problems of Dark Energy, Dark Matter, MOND and Neutrinos

Modern astronomical data on galaxy and cosmological scales have revealed powerfully the existence of certain dark sectors of fundamental physics, i.e., existence of particles and fields outside the

Reconciling MOND and dark matter

Observations of galaxies suggest a one-to-one analytic relation between the inferred gravity of dark matter at any radius and the enclosed baryonic mass, a relation summarized by Milgrom's law of

Dipolar Dark Matter

Massive gravity theories have been developed as viable IR modifications of gravity motivated by dark energy and the problem of the cosmological constant. On the other hand, modified gravity and

Non-Gaussianity in the cosmic microwave background induced by dipolar dark matter

In previous work [L. Blanchet and A. Le Tiec, Phys. Rev. D 80 (2009) 023524], motivated by the phenomenology of dark matter at galactic scales, a model of dipolar dark matter (DDM) was introduced. At

Dipolar dark matter with massive bigravity

Massive gravity theories have been developed as viable IR modifications of gravity motivated by dark energy and the problem of the cosmological constant. On the other hand, modified gravity and

Galaxy Bulges as Tests of CDM versus MOND in Strong Gravity

The tight correlation between galaxy bulges and their central black hole masses likely emerges in a phase of rapid collapse and starburst at high redshift, due to the balance of gravity on gas with

Coincidences of Dark Energy with Dark Matter: Clues for a Simple Alternative?

A rare coincidence of scales in standard particle physics is needed to explain why Λ or the negative pressure of cosmological dark energy (DE) coincides with the positive pressure P0 of random motion

A tensor—vector—scalar framework for modified dynamics and cosmic dark matter

I describe a tensor-vector-scalar theory that reconciles the galaxy-scale success of modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) with the cosmological scale evidence for cold dark matter (CDM). The theory

Detecting a Lorentz-Violating Field in Cosmology

We consider cosmology in the Einstein-\AE{}ther theory (the generally covariant theory of gravitation coupled to a dynamical timelike Lorentz-violating vector field) with a linear \AE{}-Lagrangian.

Vector-tensor nature of Bekenstein's relativistic theory of modified gravity

There is a distinct possibility that Newtonian gravity, and its relativistic generalization, General Relativity, breaks down in regions of small acceleration. Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND)

We develop a new method to predict the density associated with weak-lensing maps of (un)relaxed clusters in a range of theories interpolating between general relativity (GR) and modified Newtonian

Modifying gravity with the aether : An alternative to dark matter

There is evidence that Newton and Einstein's theories of gravity cannot explain the dynamics of a universe made up solely of baryons and radiation. To be able to understand the properties of

Insight into the baryon-gravity relation in galaxies

Observations of spiral galaxies strongly support a one-to-one analytical relation between the inferred gravity of dark matter at any radius and the enclosed baryonic mass. It is baffling that baryons

Gravity with a dynamical preferred frame

We study a generally covariant model in which local Lorentz invariance is broken "spontaneously" by a dynamical unit timelike vector field $u^a$---the "aether". Such a model makes it possible to

Large scale structure in Bekenstein's theory of relativistic modified Newtonian dynamics.

TLDR
It is shown that it may be possible to reproduce observations of the cosmic microwave background and galaxy distributions with Bekenstein's theory of MOND, and the evolution of the scalar field is akin to that of tracker quintessence fields.

We recalculate the strong lensing probability as a function of the image separation in TeVeS (tensor–vector–scalar) cosmology, which is a relativistic version of MOND (MOdified Newtonian Dynamics).
