Is a Bose-Einstein Condensate a good candidate for Dark Matter? A test with Galaxy Rotation Curves

12 May 2020 Castellanos Elías Escamilla-Rivera Celia Mastache Jorge

We analyze the rotation curves that correspond to a Bose--Einstein Condensate (BEC) type halo surrounding a Schwarzschild--type black hole to confront predictions of the model upon observations of galaxy rotation curves. We model the halo as a Bose--Einstein condensate in terms of a massive scalar field that satisfies a Klein--Gordon equation with a self--interaction term... (read more)
