We show that the model of superfluid dark matter developed in Refs. Khoury (Phys Rev D 91(2):024022, https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevD.91.024022, arXiv:1409.0012 [hep-th], 2015), Berezhiani and Khoury (Phys Rev D 92:103510, https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevD.92.103510, arXiv:1507.01019 [astro-ph.CO], 2015) and Berezhiani and Khoury (Phys Lett B 753:639, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.physletb.2015.12.054, arXiv:1506.07877 [astro-ph.CO], 2016), which modifies the Newtonian potential and explains the… 

Acausality in superfluid dark matter and MOND-like theories

There has been much interest in novel models of dark matter that exhibit interesting behavior on galactic scales. A primary motivation is the observed Baryonic Tully-Fisher Relation in which the mass

The equation of state of dark matter superfluids

We derive the finite-temperature equation of state of dark matter superfluids with 2-body and 3-body contact interactions. The latter case is relevant to a recently proposed model of dark matter

Unified superfluid dark sector

We present a novel theory of a unified dark sector, where late-time cosmic acceleration emerges from the dark matter superfluid framework. The system is described by a superfluid mixture consisting

Holographic naturalness and topological phase transitions

We show that our Universe lives in a topological and non-perturbative vacuum state full of a large amount of hidden quantum hairs, the hairons. We will discuss and elaborate on theoretical evidences

Baryon-Interacting Dark Matter: heating dark matter and the emergence of galaxy scaling relations

The empirical scaling relations observed in disk galaxies remain challenging for models of galaxy formation. The most striking among these is the Mass Discrepancy-Acceleration Relation (MDAR), which

In superfluid dark matter (SFDM), the phonon field plays a double role: it carries the superfluid's energy density and it mediates the MOND-like phonon force. We show that these two roles are in



Theory of dark matter superfluidity

We propose a novel theory of dark matter (DM) superfluidity that matches the successes of the Λ cold dark matter (ΛCDM) model on cosmological scales while simultaneously reproducing the modified

UV-completion by classicalization

We suggest a novel approach to UV-completion of a class of non-renormalizable theories, according to which the high-energy scattering amplitudes get unitarized by production of extended classical

Chern-Simons Inflation and Baryogenesis

We present a model of inflation based on the interaction between a homogeneous and isotropic configuration of a U(1) gauge field and fermionic charge density $\mathcal{J}_{0}$. The regulated

Ultra-high energy probes of classicalization

Classicalizing theories are characterized by a rapid growth of the scattering cross section. This growth converts these sort of theories in interesting probes for ultra-high energy experiments even

Note on the semiclassicality of cosmological perturbations

Moving from the consideration that matter fields must be treated in terms of their fundamental quantum counterparts, we show straightforward arguments, within the framework of ordinary quantum

Alternative to particle dark matter

We propose an alternative to particle dark matter that borrows ingredients of MOdified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND) while adding new key components. The first new feature is a dark matter fluid, in the

Black holes as critical point of quantum phase transition

It is shown that black holes can be understood as a graviton Bose–Einstein condensate at the critical point of a quantum phase transition, identical to what has been observed in systems of cold atoms.

Study of multiparticle production by gluon dominance model (Part II)

The gluon dominance model presents a description of multiparticle production in proton-proton collisions and proton-antiproton annihilation. The collective behavior of secondary particles in pp

Suppressing quantum fluctuations in classicalization

We study vacuum quantum fluctuations of simple Nambu-Goldstone bosons —derivatively coupled single scalar-field theories possessing shift symmetry in field space. We argue that quantum fluctuations
