A solution to the dark matter-baryon conspiracy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticles

Abstract

Observations indicate that the total density distribution is almost isothermal in many galaxies. In this article, I show that if the feedbacks from supermassive black hole and photon-baryon interaction are important, the total density distribution would become isothermal naturally. This explains why most rotation curves in galaxies are generally flat for the outer region and provides a solution to the dark matter-baryon conspiracy. Copyright © 2015 The Authors.
