## Abstract

This paper is concerned with the mathematical description of orbits that do not have a constant central gravitating mass. Instead, the attracting mass is a diffuse condensate, a situation which classical orbital dynamics has never encountered before. The famous Coma Cluster of Galaxies is embedded in Dark Matter. Condensed Neutrino Objects (CNO), which are stable assemblages of neutrinos and anti-neutrinos, are candidates for the Dark Matter. A CNO solution has been attained previously for the Coma Cluster, which allows mathematical modeling of galaxy orbital mechanics within Dark Matter, first reported here. For non-zero eccentricity galaxy orbits, each point along the trajectory sees a different gravitating central mass, akin to satellite orbits inside Earth. Mathematically, the galaxy orbits are non-Keplerian, spirographs.

## 1. Introduction

There are two seminal observations that bracket the existence of Dark Matter, giving essential physics clues. The first is Zwicky [1] who noticed that the luminous matter in the Coma Galaxy Cluster is too small in mass to gravitationally bind the cluster. Quanitatively, the fastest bound galaxy has speed relative to the Coma center-of-mass of about 3000 km/s [2]. From the Coma Galaxy Cluster we learn:

The amount of (unseen) Dark Matter in the Coma Cluster vastly ‘outweighs’ the luminous matter.

We can see right through the Coma Cluster to image galaxies on the other side of the Universe, which means light is not scattered by Dark Matter: astonishingly, Dark Matter is transparent to light.

The gravitational potential of Dark Matter is of the same size as the Coma Galaxy Cluster dimensions.

The second seminal observation is Rubin [3] who showed that the rotational speeds of stars in spiral galaxies are too high for gravitational binding with the amount of luminous spiral galaxy mass observed. Unfortunately, here the story takes a tragic diversion, because Rubin assumed that the missing spiral Dark Matter must be in the halo of the measured galaxy itself. This mistake could be attributable to the lack of mathematical sophistication, but it has misled researchers for years. Let us discuss the situation of a spiral galaxy embedded in a Coma-like Galaxy Cluster Dark Matter potential and see the complexity of the resulting gravitational potential. The Dark Matter gravitational potential at position

Consider now letting a move along a spiral arm, going around 360 degrees, where this angle becomes the spiral galaxy’s azimuthal angle * same near each other*. This geometric dependence of the large Coma-like Dark Matter is a significant source of confusion when the Dark Matter is attributable to a galactic halo and has led to bogus science claims [4] of satellite galaxies having enormous amounts of Dark Matter.

## 2. Dark matter particles as fermions

Large astronomical assemblages of matter have gravitational self-energies that will cause them to collapse. They are only stable if there is an internal pressure source. Observations of Dark Matter embedding galactic clusters reveal no Dark Matter energy generation. The Lamda-Cold-Dark-Matter cosmological model postulates that Dark Matter is cold. Therefore Maxwellian statistics are not present. Dark Matter particles are described by quantum statistics, which are either the Fermi-Dirac or Bose-Einstein distributions. However, boson stars do not exist in Nature because bosons will occupy the lowest energy state in cold matter. We come to the conclusion that Dark Matter is made up of Fermions that are in equilibrium due to degeneracy pressure. Recognizing that White Dwarfs are stable due to electron degeneracy, Neutron Stars are stable due to neutron degeneracy, we see that the size of the stable assemblage is inversely proportional to the Fermion mass. Zwicky’s discovery that the Coma Cluster of galaxies is embedded in Dark Matter means that the Dark Matter Fermion particle must be incredibly small in mass, even compared to the small electron’s mass.

## 3. Condensation of cosmological neutrinos

The additional requirement that the Dark Matter particles be the most abundent particles in the Universe identifies the condensation of cosmological neutrinos from the Big Bang as a very attractive candidate for Dark Matter. Reference [5] is the first publication that correctly evaluated the equation of state for degenerate neutrino matter, where the neutrinos and anti-neutrinos condense into stable assemblages called ‘condensed neutrino objects’ (CNO). Reference [6] derived the CNO mass-radius relationship

where ^{2}. Once

The interesting physics of CNO is that there is no central mass. Instead, galaxies having non-zero eccentricities see a different gravitating mass at each point along their orbit. Human beings have never seen this astronomical phenomena before. It would be akin to having satellite orbits inside the Earth and it leads to non-Keplerian orbits.

## 4. Coma galaxy cluster CNO

When galaxies self-assemble inside CNO, they may have negligible velocities with respect to the Dark Matter or non-negligible velocities. Those galaxies having negligible velocities fall to the center of the CNO and execute simple harmonic motion (SHM), reference [5]. These galaxies then obtain their fastest speed at the center of the CNO, and when there, are the fastest galaxies embedded in the CNO that are gravitationally bound. On the other hand, galaxies which self-assemble with non-negligible velocities with respect to the CNO center of mass, execute orbital dynamics. Conservation of angular momentum prevents their appearance in the CNO center, and they never appear in the fast velocity histograms. If astronomical data is available for individual galaxies of a galaxy cluster, then picking out the fastest bound galaxy will place its location at or near the CNO center. In Ref. [8] this analysis was done to identify the CNO parameter, the neutrino Fermi Momentum (

## 5. Galaxy cluster embedded in a CNO

Observationally, most or all galaxy clusters are embedded in Dark Matter, because the observable luminous matter does not produce a strong enough gravitational well to confine the experimentally observed galaxy velocities. This was the original Zwicky observation. Theoretical studies of galaxy cluster dynamical evolutions that did not understand the physics of Dark Matter reached the following conclusion (exemplified by reference [9]): galaxies collapse toward the center and virialize with Dark Matter to attain a steady-state distribution. For CNO Dark Matter, the galaxies revolve in a frictionless condensate and do not viralize with the Dark Matter at all.

### 5.2 Coma galaxy cluster orbits

The galaxies will execute orbits on a plane defined by their initial (birth) velocity components. On this 2-Dimensional plane are the

The numerical function

As already discussed, the reason why orbital dynamics of galaxies embedded in a CNO are different and unusual is because there is no central mass situated at the center of a CNO (see Figure 5). This is the first time we see non-Keplerian orbits from classical gravity. We now solve the system of Eq. (7) for interesting initial conditions. We will do two examples that illustrate the orbital dynamics of galaxies embedded in Dark Matter CNO.

The last equation of array Eq. (7) shows that the angular momentum per unit mass

### 5.3 Case 1 example

The Coma Galaxy Cluster has a measured (in Coma center-of-mass frame) Gaussian distribution of speeds [2] that extends up to 3000 km/s. For our first example, we will use a small value for the initial speed of a galaxy:

For

Since

This gives the last initial condition

Evaluating Eq. (15) gives

Designating the right hand side of Eq. (10) as

Finally, the problem to be numerically solved is reduced to

In Figure 7 we give the polar graph of 4 revolutions showing that the orbit precesses without any relativistic corrections or perturbations. This is non-Keplerian behavior: a spiralgraph. If we look closely at the starting location

We now compute the period for this case. In order to do this, we have to arrange the variables such that

so the period

This is done using

This gives

Doing this final integration numerically reveals

In Figure 8, the speed is plotted against rotation angle, showing the near SHM of small birth velocities. Starting at 100 km/s at 0 degrees, it reaches a high

### 5.4 Case 2 example

The only change from the prior case is the initial speed

In Figure 9, we give 4 revolutions for this case, again showing non-Keplerian behavior. Note that the starting initial conditions permit the galaxy to expand beyond

For the period of this case, one can show that the numerical integration is

Doing this final integration numerically finds

## 6. Conclusion

The KATRIN neutrino mass experiment [7] can prove Dark Matter is the condensation of cosmological neutrinos and anti-neutrinos by obtaining a mass signal for the electron-anti-neutrino. The Planck Satellite Consortium assumes no condensation of cosmological neutrinos in their analysis of the cosmological microwave background and predicts neutrino masses too small for KATRIN to measure [8]. The identification of CNO as the Dark Matter allows mathematical modeling of embedded galaxy orbits, first reported here, using the Coma Cluster of galaxies.

## 7. Future work

Galaxies inside the CNO Dark Matter self-aggregate with a probability distribution at locations between

The next step is to do a simulation of N-number of self-aggregating galaxies over an initial period of time and time-advance it to the present day. The ‘birth’ distribution in velocities will give rise to a predicted later time-evolved velocity distribution that can be compared to the present-day astronomically measured velocity distribution.

Because of the huge CNO Dark Matter mass, individual galaxy collisions are a small perturbation of cluster dynamics. The probability that you have cluster evaporation from many-body interactions is near zero and completely negligible: baryonic matter situated in a CNO gravitational well stays in the CNO gravitational well. For our numerical examples here, we used two galaxies at the same initial radial distance. However, the orbital planes of both galaxies could have been in any 3-dimensional orientation in 3-space, hence even the same initial radial orbits have a negligible chance of interacting.
