SCALAR NONLUMINOUS MATTER IN GALAXIES
International Journal of Modern Physics A
As a candidate for dark matter in galaxies, we study an SU(3) triplet of complex scalar fields which are non-minimally coupled to gravity. In the spherically symmetric static spacetime where the flat rotational velocity curves of stars in galaxies can be explained, we find simple solutions of scalar fields with SU(3) global symmetry broken to U(1) X U(1), in an exponential scalar potential, which will be useful in a quintessence model of the late-time acceleration of the Universe.doi:10.1142/s0217751x02006092 fatcat:kbb4gbjs6vegrp5wzgjuh6hhfm
