Title: Dynamics of phantom matter

Abstract

A spherically symmetric evolution model of self-gravitating matter with the equation of state p = -(1 + {delta}){epsilon} (where {delta} = const) is considered. The equations of the model are written in the frame of reference co-moving with matter. A criterion for the existence and formation of a horizon is defined. Part of the Einstein equations is integrated analytically. The initial conditions and the constraints imposed on these conditions in the presence of a horizon are determined. For small {delta}, an analytic solution to spherically symmetric time-dependent Einstein equations is obtained. Conditions are determined under which the dynamics of matter changes from collapse to expansion. Characteristic times of the evolution of the system are evaluated. It is proved that the accretion of phantom matter (for {delta} > 0) onto a black hole leads to the decreases of the horizon radius of the black hole (i.e., the black hole is dissolved)

  • The recent years have seen combined measurements of X-ray and (weak) lensing contours for colliding galaxy clusters such as, for instance, the famous 'Bullet' cluster. These observations have revealed offsets in the peaks of the baryonic and (dominant) gravitational matter component of order approx100-200 kpc. Such discrepancies are difficult to explain using modified theories for gravity other than dark matter. Or are they not? Here we use the concept of 'phantom dark matter' that is based upon a Newtonian interpretation of the modified Newtonian dynamics (MONDian) gravitational potential. We show that this idea is in fact capable of producing substantialmore » offsets in idealistic density configurations, involving a uniform external field. However, when analyzed in a MONDian cosmological framework we deduce that the size (and probability) of the effect is too small to explain the observed offsets found in the most recent observations, at least in the simplest incarnation of phantom dark matter as discussed here. The lensing centers in merging galaxy clusters are likely very close to the centers of true mass even in a MONDian cosmology. This gives the support to the idea that neutrino-like non-collisional matter might be responsible for the observed offsets of lensing and X-ray peaks.« less
  • In this paper we study the possibility of sustaining an evolving wormhole via exotic matter made out of phantom energy. We show that this exotic source can support the existence of evolving wormhole spacetimes. Explicitly, a family of evolving Lorentzian wormholes conformally related to another family of zero-tidal force static wormhole geometries is found in Einstein gravity. Contrary to the standard wormhole approach, where first a convenient geometry is fixed and then the matter distribution is derived, we follow the conventional approach for finding solutions in theoretical cosmology. We derive an analytical evolving wormhole geometry by supposing that the radialmore » tension (which is negative to the radial pressure) and the pressure measured in the tangential directions have barotropic equations of state with constant state parameters. At spatial infinity this evolving wormhole, supported by this anisotropic matter, is asymptotically flat, and its slices t=constant are spaces of constant curvature. During its evolution the shape of the wormhole expands with constant velocity, i.e without acceleration or deceleration, since the scale factor has strictly a linear evolution.« less
  • In this paper we study the possibility of sustaining an evolving wormhole via exotic matter made of phantom energy in the presence of a cosmological constant. We derive analytical evolving wormhole geometries by supposing that the radial tension of the phantom matter, which is negative to the radial pressure, and the pressure measured in the tangential directions have barotropic equations of state with constant state parameters. In this case the presence of a cosmological constant ensures accelerated expansion of the wormhole configurations. More specifically, for positive cosmological constant we have wormholes which expand forever and, for negative cosmological constant wemore » have wormholes which expand to a maximum value and then recollapse. At spatial infinity the energy density and the pressures of the anisotropic phantom matter threading the wormholes vanish; thus these evolving wormholes are asymptotically vacuum {lambda}-Friedmann models with either open or closed or flat topologies.« less
  • We present a global study of the simplest scalar phantom dark matter model. The best fit parameters of the model are determined by simultaneously imposing (i) relic density constraint from WMAP, (ii) 225 live days data from direct experiment XENON100, (iii) upper limit of gamma-ray flux from Fermi-LAT indirect detection based on dwarf spheroidal satellite galaxies, and (iv) the Higgs boson candidate with a mass about 125 GeV and its invisible branching ratio no larger than 40% if the decay of the Higgs boson into a pair of dark matter is kinematically allowed. The allowed parameter space is then usedmore » to predict annihilation cross sections for gamma-ray lines, event rates for three processes mono-b jet, single charged lepton and two charged leptons plus missing energies at the Large Hadron Collider, as well as to evaluate the muon anomalous magnetic dipole moment for the model.« less
  • We consider a dynamical system of phantom scalar field under exponential potential in the background of loop quantum cosmology. In our analysis, there is neither stable node nor repeller unstable node but only two saddle points, hence no big rip singularity. Physical solutions always possess potential energy greater than the magnitude of the negative kinetic energy. We found that the universe bounces after accelerating even in the domination of the phantom field. After bouncing, the universe finally enters the oscillatory regime.
