A Possible Alternative to Dark Matter

Authors: I. V. Grossu

Inspired by existing theories that consider modifications of Newton's law for extragalactic systems, I propose, as an alternative to dark matter, the existence of a new force, constructed in an analog way with the magnetic field. In this context, an encouraging qualitative agreement with the rotation curves of disk galaxies was obtained. It is important to emphasis on the very basic level of the treatment presented in this paper. Further analyses along those lines are currently in progress.
