We covariantly modify the Einstein–Hilbert action such that the modified action perturbatively resolves the anomalous rotational velocity curve of the spiral galaxies and gives rise to the Tully–Fisher relation, and dynamically generates the cosmological constant. This modification requires introducing a single new universal parameter. It requires inclusion of neither dark matter nor dark energy. 
MOND reveals the thermodynamics of gravity
We show that treating gravitation as a thermodynamical theory leads to the modified Newton dynamics (MOND) equations if one takes into account the Hubble's expansion. Then the universal MONDExpand
Isotropic universe with almost scale-invariant fourth-order gravity
We study a class of isotropic cosmologies in fourth-order gravity with Lagrangians of the form L = f(R)+k(G) where R and G are the Ricci and Gauss-Bonnet scalars respectively. A general discussion isExpand
Constraints on f(R ijkl R ijkl ) gravity: evidence against the covariant resolution of the Pioneer anomaly
We consider corrections in the form of ΔL(RijklRijkl) to the Einstein–Hilbert Lagrangian. Then we compute the corrections to the Schwarzschild geometry due to the inclusion of this general term toExpand
GravitoMagnetic Force in Modified Newtonian Dynamics
We introduce the Gauge Vector-Tensor (GVT) theory by extending the AQUAL's approach to the GravitoElectroMagnetism (GEM) approximation of gravity. GVT is a generally covariant theory of gravityExpand

Demystifying Dark Matter
Dark matter, proposed years ago as a conjectural component of the universe, is now known to be the vital ingredient in the cosmos, eight times more abundant than ordinary matter, one quarter of theExpand
Role of structure scalars on the evolution of compact objects in Palatini f(R) gravity
The utmost concern of this article is the construction of modified scalar functions (structure scalars) by taking Palatini f(R) gravitational theory into account. At first, a general formalism isExpand
