  • The clustering of galaxies in the completed SDSS-III Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey : anisotropic galaxy clustering in Fourier space 

    Beutler, Florian; Seo, Hee-Jong; Saito, Shun; Chuang, Chia-Hsun; Cuesta, Antonio J.; Eisenstein, Daniel J.; Gil-Marín, Héctor; Grieb, Jan Niklas; Hand, Nick; Kitaura, Francisco-Shu; Modi, Chirag; Nichol, Robert C.; Olmstead, Matthew D.; Percival, Will J.; Prada, Francisco; Sánchez, Ariel G.; Rodriguez-Torres, Sergio; Ross, Ashley J.; Ross, Nicholas P.; Schneider, Donald P.; Tinker, Jeremy; Tojeiro, Rita; Vargas-Magaña, Mariana (2017-04) - Journal article
    We investigate the anisotropic clustering of the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) Data Release 12 sample, which consists of 1198 006 galaxies in the redshift range 0.2 < z < 0.75 and a sky coverage of ...
  • The clustering of galaxies in the completed SDSS-III Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey : baryon acoustic oscillations in the Fourier space 

    Beutler, Florian; Seo, Hee-Jong; Ross, Ashley J.; McDonald, Patrick; Saito, Shun; Bolton, Adam S.; Brownstein, Joel R.; Chuang, Chia-Hsun; Cuesta, Antonio J.; Eisenstein, Daniel J.; Font-Ribera, Andreu; Grieb, Jan Niklas; Hand, Nick; Kitaura, Francisco-Shu; Modi, Chirag; Nichol, Robert C.; Percival, Will J.; Prada, Francisco; Rodriguez-Torres, Sergio; Roe, Natalie A.; Ross, Nicholas P.; Salazar-Albornoz, Salvador; Sánchez, Ariel G.; Schneider, Donald P.; Slosar, Anže; Tinker, Jeremy; Tojeiro, Rita; Vargas-Magaña, Mariana; Vazquez, Jose A. (2017-01) - Journal article
    We analyse the baryon acoustic oscillation (BAO) signal of the final Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) data release (DR12). Our analysis is performed in the Fourier space, using the power spectrum monopole and ...
  • Conformal gravity rotation curves with a conformal Higgs halo 

    Horne, Keith Douglas (2016-06-01) - Journal article
    We discuss the effect of a conformally coupled Higgs field on Conformal Gravity (CG) predictions for the rotation curves of galaxies. The Mannheim-Kazanas (MK) metric is a valid vacuum solution of CG's 4-th order Poisson ...
  • Extragalactic and cosmological tests of gravity theories with additional scalar or vector fields 

    Feix, Martin (University of St Andrews, 2011-06-24) - Thesis
    Despite the many successes of the current standard model of cosmology on the largest physical scales, it relies on two phenomenologically motivated constituents, cold dark matter and dark energy, which account for approximately ...
  • Generalizing MOND to explain the missing mass in galaxy clusters 

    Hodson, Alistair O.; Zhao, Hongsheng (2017-02-13) - Journal article
    Context. MOdified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND) is a gravitational framework designed to explain the astronomical observations in the Universe without the inclusion of particle dark matter. Modified Newtonian Dynamics, in its ...
  • Modified Newtonian dynamics at all astrophysical scales 

    Angus, Garry W. (University of St Andrews, 2008-11-27) - Thesis
    In this thesis I test the modified Newtonian dynamics as an alternative to the cold dark matter hypothesis. In the Milky Way, I show that the dynamics of the dwarf galaxies are well described by the paradigm and I confirm ...
  • Numerical modeling of modified Newtonian dynamics in galaxies : testing the external field effects 

    Xufen, Wu (University of St Andrews, 2010-11-30) - Thesis
    Galaxies are natural laboratories for testing fundamental physics on the nature of the dark matter. MOdified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND) has been tested for over 20 years on small and large scales. While there are several ...
