Title: Light bending in the galactic halo by Rindler-Ishak method

Abstract

After the work of Rindler and Ishak, it is now well established that the bending of light is influenced by the cosmological constant Λ appearing in the Schwarzschild-de Sitter spacetime. We show that their method, when applied to the exact Mannheim-Kazanas-de Sitter solution of the Weyl conformal gravity, nicely yields the expected answer together with several other physically interesting new terms. Apart from Λ, the solution is parametrized by a conformal parameter γ, which is known to play a dominant role in the galactic halo gravity. The application of the method yields exactly the same γ− correction to Schwarzschild bending as obtained by standard methods. Different cases are analyzed, which include some corrections to the special cases considered in the original paper by Rindler and Ishak.
