Measurement Quantization Accounts for Galactic Rotational Velocities and Obviates Dark Matter

Authors: Jody A Geiger

A physical description of the orbital dynamics of stars around a galactic core has proved difficult. Notably, there is insufficient mass to account for the observed star velocities. The missing-mass mystery is one of few in modern science that defy the known laws of physics. It has been conjectured that there exists a new form of matter that interacts gravitationally while otherwise remaining undetectable. In this paper, we offer an alternative resolution of this mystery. Its expression does not modify the known laws of physics, contains no free variables or fittings, and is entirely classical in nature. Using the notion of counts of the fundamental measures—length, mass, and time—it is shown that measure is bounded. Accounting for this bound and the expansion of space reveals that the dark matter conjecture is unnecessary while resolving the missing-mass mystery.
