Cosmological models that invoke warm or cold dark matter cannot explain observed regularities in the properties of dwarf galaxies, their highly anisotropic spatial distributions, nor the correlation between observed mass discrepancies and acceleration. These problems with the standard model of cosmology have deep implications, in particular in combination with the observation that the data are excellently described by Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND). MOND is a classical dynamics theory which… Expand

Modified Newtonian Gravity as an Alternative to the Dark Matter Hypothesis
[-5]The applications of Newtonian dynamics in galactic scales have shown that the inverse square law is incompatible with the amount of visible mass in the form of stars and molecular clouds. ThisExpand
Lessons from the Local Group (and beyond) on dark matter
The existence of exotic dark matter particles outside the standard model of particle physics constitutes a central hypothesis of the current standard model of cosmology (SMoC). Using a wide range ofExpand

The physical processes defining the dynamics of disc galaxies are still poorly understood. Hundreds of articles have appeared in the literature over the last decades without arriving at anExpand
The cosmological simulations indicates that dark matter halos have specific self-similar properties. However, the halo similarity is affected by the baryonic feedback. By using momentum-driven windsExpand
A tale of two paradigms: the mutual incommensurability of ΛCDM and MOND
The concordance model of cosmology, ΛCDM, provides a satisfactory description of the evolution of the universe and the growth of large-scale structure. Despite considerable effort, this model doesExpand
Paradoxes of cosmological physics in the beginning of the 21-st century
In the history of cosmology physical paradoxes played important role for development of contemporary world models. Within the modern standard cosmological model there are both observational andExpand
Understanding disk galaxy rotation velocities without dark matter contribution--a physical process for MOND?
An impact model of gravity designed to emulate Newton's law of gravitation is applied to the radial acceleration of disk galaxies. Based on this model (Wilhelm et al. 2013), the rotation velocityExpand
Submicroscopic viewpoint on gravitation , cosmology , dark energy and dark matter , and the first data of inerton astronomy
The so-called Standard Model of particle physics and the Standard Model of cosmology have so far not been able to suggest unambiguously what the very nature of dark matter is. These Models areExpand
The observed spatial distribution of matter on scales ranging from 100kpc to 1Gpc is inconsistent with the standard dark-matter-based cosmological models
The spatial arrangement of galaxies (of satellites on a scale of 100kpc) as well as their three-dimensional distribution in galaxy groups such as the Local Group (on a scale of 1Mpc), theExpand
The objective of this paper is to propose a new understanding of relativity theory (RT) keeping all its measurable results in a one and only non-expanding multiverse (many evolutionary cosmoses inExpand


The abundance of galaxy clusters in MOND: Cosmological simulations with massive neutrinos
We present a new Particle-Mesh cosmological N-body code for accurately solving the modified Poisson equation of the Quasi Linear formulation of MOND. We generate initial conditions for the AngusExpand

Neutrinos as cluster dark matter
The dynamical mass of clusters of galaxies, calculated in terms of MOdified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND), is a factor of 2 or 3 times smaller than the Newtonian dynamical mass but remains significantlyExpand
