We present an analysis of 12 high-resolution galactic rotation curves from The HI Nearby Galaxy Survey (THINGS) in the context of modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND). These rotation curves were selected to be the most reliable for mass modelling, and they are the highest quality rotation curves currently available for a sample of galaxies spanning a wide range of luminosities. We fit the rotation curves with the "simple" and "standard" interpolating functions of MOND, and we find that the… Expand
The distribution of dark and luminous matter inferred from extended rotation curves
A better understanding of the formation of mass structures in the Universe can be obtained by determining the amount and distribution of dark and luminous matter in spiral galaxies. To investigateExpand
Galaxy mass models: MOND versus dark matter haloes
Mass models of 15 nearby dwarf and spiral galaxies are presented. The galaxies are selected to be homogeneous in terms of the method used to determine their distances, the sampling of their rotationExpand
Fitting the radial acceleration relation to individual SPARC galaxies
Galaxies follow a tight radial acceleration relation (RAR): the acceleration observed at every radius correlates with that expected from the distribution of baryons. We use the Markov Chain MonteExpand
Low-mass disc galaxies and the issue of stability: MOND versus dark matter
We analyse the rotation curves and gravitational stability of a sample of six bulgeless galaxies for which detailed images reveal no evidence for strong bars. We explore two scenarios: Newtonian darkExpand
The radial acceleration relation and dark baryons in MOND
Recent observations of rotationally supported galaxies show a tight correlation between the observed radial acceleration at every radius and the Newtonian acceleration generated by the baryonic massExpand
Slowly rotating gas-rich galaxies in modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND)
We have carried out a search for gas-rich dwarf galaxies that have lower rotation velocities in their outskirts than MOdified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND) predicts, so that the amplitude of theirExpand
THE BARYONIC TULLY-FISHER RELATION OF GAS-RICH GALAXIES AS A TEST OF ΛCDM AND MOND
The baryonic Tully-Fisher relation (BTFR) is an empirical relation between baryonic mass and rotation velocity in disk galaxies. It provides tests of galaxy formation models in ΛCDM and ofExpand
Evidence against cuspy dark matter haloes in large galaxies
We develop and apply new techniques in order to uncover galaxy rotation curves (RC) systematics. Considering that an ideal dark matter (DM) profile should yield RCs that have no bias towards anyExpand
Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND): Observational Phenomenology and Relativistic Extensions
TLDR
It is shown that many of these puzzling observations are predicted by one single relation — Milgrom’s law — involving an acceleration constant a0 on the order of the square-root of the cosmological constant in natural units. Expand
MOND prediction of a new giant shell in the elliptical galaxy NGC 3923
Context. Stellar shells, which form axially symmetric systems of arcs in some elliptical galaxies, are most likely remnants of radial minor mergers. They are observed up a radius of similar to 100Expand

Distances to Galaxies from the Correlation between Luminosities and Line Widths. III. Cluster Template and Global Measurement of H 0
The correlation between the luminosities and rotation velocities of galaxies can be used to estimate distances to late-type galaxies. It is an appropriate moment to reevaluate this method given theExpand
