2 Outline MOND as a replacement for DM (Sanders & McGaugh 02) MOND as a replacement for DM (Sanders & McGaugh 02) Absence of DM interior to the Sun (Bissantz et al 03, 04) Absence of DM interior to the Sun (Bissantz et al 03, 04) TeVeS Lorentz-covariant MOND (Bekenstein 2004) TeVeS Lorentz-covariant MOND (Bekenstein 2004)

15 DM in the MW? Bissantz & Gerhard (02) Determine near-IR luminosity density from COBE K & L photometry Bissantz & Gerhard (02) Determine near-IR luminosity density from COBE K & L photometry Advances previous work by including spiral structure in disk Advances previous work by including spiral structure in disk Bissantz Englmaier & Gerhard (03) study gas flow in Φ obtained with spatially const M/L + quasi-isothermal DM halo Bissantz Englmaier & Gerhard (03) study gas flow in Φ obtained with spatially const M/L + quasi-isothermal DM halo Fit M/L, ω bar, ω spiral Fit M/L, ω bar, ω spiral M/L for stars set by dynamics of non- axisymmetric structure M/L for stars set by dynamics of non- axisymmetric structure DM halo makes up balance for tangent-velocity curve DM halo makes up balance for tangent-velocity curve

21 Bissantz Debattista & Gerhard (04) Use novel N-body technique to find dynamical model that reproduces Bissantz & Gerhard photometry Use novel N-body technique to find dynamical model that reproduces Bissantz & Gerhard photometry Adopt M/L, ω normalization from BEG Adopt M/L, ω normalization from BEG No free parameters in Φ No free parameters in Φ Reproduce proper motions of bulge stars in Baade’s window etc Reproduce proper motions of bulge stars in Baade’s window etc For plausible mass function of stars, reproduce MACHO microlensing event duration distribution For plausible mass function of stars, reproduce MACHO microlensing event duration distribution

27 TeVeS important development Link to effective field theory? TeVeS important development Link to effective field theory? Can now extend MOND to CMB and large- scale structure Can now extend MOND to CMB and large- scale structure If not worse than CDM in these fields, must be favoured theory If not worse than CDM in these fields, must be favoured theory Then question: significance of U µ and Φ fields in TeVeS Then question: significance of U µ and Φ fields in TeVeS

28 Conclusions MOND has amazing ability to model data taken after it was invented MOND has amazing ability to model data taken after it was invented Excellent fits to galaxy rotation curves require M/L(colour) as from SS theory Excellent fits to galaxy rotation curves require M/L(colour) as from SS theory Compelling evidence that negligible DM interior to Sun Compelling evidence that negligible DM interior to Sun Now limiting form of Lorentz covariant theory Now limiting form of Lorentz covariant theory MOND really might be the next great step in physics MOND really might be the next great step in physics
