The rotation curves of low surface brightness galaxies provide a unique data set with which to test alternative theories of gravitation over a large dynamic range in size, mass, surface density, and acceleration. Many clearly fail, including any in which the mass discrepancy appears at a particular length scale. One hypothesis, Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND), is consistent with the data. Indeed, it accurately predicts the observed behavior. We find no evidence on any scale that clearly… Expand
Testing the dark matter hypothesis with low surface brightness galaxies and other evidence
The severity of the mass discrepancy in spiral galaxies is strongly correlated with the central surface brightness of their disks. Progressively lower surface brightness galaxies have ever largerExpand
Confrontation of MOdified Newtonian Dynamics with the rotation curves of early-type disc galaxies
We extend the MOdified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND) analysis to a sample of 17 high surface brightness, early-type disc galaxies with rotation curves derived from a combination of 21-cm H-I lineExpand

TLDR
A test using gas rich galaxies for which both axes of the BTFR can be measured independently of the theories being tested and without the systematic uncertainty in stellar mass that affects the same test with star dominated spirals is reported. Expand
Outer Galactic Disks and a Quantitative Test of Gravity at Low Accelerations
We use the recent measurement of the velocity dispersion of star-forming, outer-disk knots by Herbert-Fort et al. in the nearly face-on galaxy NGC 628, in combination with other data from theExpand
High-Resolution Rotation Curves of Low Surface Brightness Galaxies. I. Data*
We present long-slit Hα observations of 50 low surface brightness galaxies. Of these, 36 are of sufficient quality to form rotation curves. These data provide a large increase in the number of lowExpand
Investigating Dark Matter and MOND in Local Volume Galaxies
Employing the most recent Local Volume Hi Survey (LVHIS) [5] data we are going to derive high-resolution Hi rotation curves for ~28 gas-rich nearby galaxies. Combining these kinematical results withExpand
Problems for Modified Newtonian Dynamics in Clusters and the Lyα Forest
The observed dynamics of gas and stars on galactic and larger scales cannot be accounted for by self-gravity, indicating that there are large quantities of unseen matter or that gravity isExpand
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
Testing modified Newtonian dynamics with low surface brightness galaxies : Rotation curve fits
We present modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) fits to 15 rotation curves of low surface brightness (LSB) galaxies. Good fits are readily found, although for a few galaxies minor adjustments to theExpand
Semianalytical Models for the Formation of Disk Galaxies. II. Dark Matter versus Modified Newtonian Dynamics
We present detailed semianalytical models for the formation of disk galaxies both in a universe dominated by dark matter (DM) and in one for which the force law is given by modified NewtonianExpand

The consistency of Milgrom's theory of modified Newtonian dynamics is checked against optical and X-ray data for the Coma cluster of galaxies. It is found that viable models for the clusterExpand
