Dark matter or modified dynamics?: hints from galaxy kinematics

Gianfranco Gentile (2010) Dark matter in astrophysics and particle physics (DARK 2009). p.440-448
abstract
I show two observational projects I am involved in, which are aimed at understanding better the existence and nature of dark matter, and also aimed at testing alternatives to galactic dark matter such as MOND (Modified Newtonian Dynamics). I present new HI observations of the nearby dwarf galaxy NGC 3741. This galaxy has an extremely extended HI disc (42 B-band exponential scalelengths). The distribution and kinematics are accurately derived by building model data cubes, which closely reproduce the observations. Mass modelling of the rotation curve shows that a cored dark matter halo or MOND provide very good fits, whereas Cold Dark Matter density profiles fail to fit the data. I also show new results about tidal dwarf galaxies, which within the CDM framework are expected to be dark matter-free but whose kinematics instead show a mass discrepancy, exactly of the magnitude that is expected in MOND (Modified Newtonian Dynamics).
