Continuing on from previous works, we present a cosmological model in which dark matter and dark energy are modelled by scalar fields Φ and Ψ, respectively, endowed with the scalar potentials V(Φ) = Vo[cosh (λ√κoΦ) - 1] and (Ψ) = o[sinh (α√κoΨ)]β. This model contains a 95% scalar field. We obtain that the scalar dark matter mass is mΦ~10-26 eV. The solution obtained allows us to recover the success of standard cold dark matter. The implications on the formation of structure are reviewed. We…

Scalar field dark matter with a cosh potential, revisited

Dark matter models in which the constituent particle is an ultra-light boson have become part of the mainstream discussion in cosmology and astrophysics. At the classical level, the models are

Rapid cosmological simulations in Scalar Field Dark Matter models

The process of structure formation in the Universe can be explained by means of the gravitational instability of the different matter components, in particular that of the so-called dark matter

Brief Review on Scalar Field Dark Matter Models

The existence of dark matter in the Universe has been solidly established in the last decades, after the arrival of accurate cosmological and astrophysical observations, and some consider it the most

Consequences for the Scalar Field Dark Matter Model from the McGaugh Observed-baryon Acceleration Correlation

Although the standard cosmological model, the so-called Λ cold dark matter (ΛCDM), appears to fit well observations at the cosmological level, it is well known that it possesses several

Are black holes a serious threat to scalar field dark matter models

Classical scalar fields have been proposed as possible candidates for the dark matter component of the universe. Given the fact that supermassive black holes seem to exist at the center of most

Fermi Bubbles in Scalar Field Dark Matter halos

In recent times, the Scalar Field Dark Matter (SFDM) model (also called Fuzzy, Wave, Ultralight dark matter model) has received much attention due to its success in describing dark matter on both

Towards accurate cosmological predictions for rapidly oscillating scalar fields as dark matter

As we are entering the era of precision cosmology, it is necessary to count on accurate cosmological predictions from any proposed model of dark matter. In this paper we present a novel approach to

Towards physical cosmology: geometrical interpretation of Dark Energy, Dark Matter and Inflation without fundamental sources

We outline the key-steps towards the construction of a physical, fully relativistic cosmology, in which we aim to trace Dark Energy and Dark Matter back to physical properties of space. The influence

Rotation curves with the multistate Scalar Field Dark Matter model

We use the concept of co-added rotation curves of Salucci et al. to investigate the properties of axi-symmetric multistate Scalar Field Dark Matter halos in low surface brightness galaxies and dwarf



Noninteracting dark matter

Since an acceptable dark matter candidate may interact only weakly with ordinary matter and radiation, it is of interest to consider the limiting case where the dark matter interacts only with

Cosmological Perturbation Theory in the Synchronous and Conformal Newtonian Gauges

This paper presents a systematic treatment of the linear theory of scalar gravitational perturbations in the synchronous gauge and the conformal Newtonian (or longitudinal) gauge. It differs from

The Core Density of Dark Matter Halos: A Critical Challenge to the ΛCDM Paradigm?

We compare the central mass concentration of cold dark matter (CDM) halos found in cosmological N-body simulations with constraints derived from the Milky Way disk dynamics and from the Tully-Fisher

It is argued that a number of models in which the energy density of the scalar field red-shifts in a specific manner are studied could reconcile the low dynamical estimates of the mean mass density with the negligibly small spatial curvature preferred by inflation.

Cosmic Concordance and Quintessence

We present a comprehensive study of the observational constraints on spatially flat cosmological models containing a mixture of matter and quintessence—a time-varying, spatially inhomogeneous

Cosmological imprint of an energy component with general equation of state

We examine the possibility that a significant component of the energy density of the Universe has an equation of state different from that of matter, radiation, or cosmological constant ({Lambda} ).

The observational case for a low-density Universe with a non-zero cosmological constant

OBSERVATIONS are providing progressively tighter constraints on cosmological models advanced to explain the formation of large-scale structure in the Universe. These include recent determinations of

Scalar field as dark matter in the universe

We investigate the hypothesis that the scalar field is the dark matter and the dark energy in the cosmos, which comprises about 95% of the matter of the Universe. We show that this hypothesis
