It has been recently demonstrated that both, a classical Schwarzschild black hole (BH), and a dense concentration of self-gravitating fermionic dark matter (DM) placed at the Galaxy centre, can explain the precise astrometric data (positions and radial velocities) of the S-stars orbiting Sgr A*. This result encompasses the 17 best resolved S-stars, and includes the test of general relativistic effects such as the gravitational redshift in the S2-star. In addition, the DM model features another…

Investigating the nature of mass distribution surrounding the Galactic supermassive black hole

In the past three decades, many stars orbiting about the supermassive black hole (SMBH) at the Galactic Centre (Sgr A*) were identified. Their orbital nature can give stringent constraints for the

Periapsis shifts in dark matter distribution with a dense core

We consider the periapsis shifts in dark matter distribution with a dense core. We model the dark matter distribution as an isotropic gas sphere, the Emden polytropic sphere of index 5 in general

Unveiling the nature of SgrA* with the geodesic motion of S-stars

Despite the huge improvements guaranteed by future GRAVITY observations of the S0-2 star, these will not be able to unveil the fundamental nature, whether black hole or wormhole, of the central
