Abstract Share this page

A covariant scalar-tensor-vector gravity theory is develo ped which allows the gravitational constant G, a vector field coupling ω and the vector field mass μ to vary with space and time. The equations of motion for a test particle lead to a modified gravitational acceleration law that can fit galaxy rotation curves and cluster data without non-baryonic dark matter. T he theory is consistent with solar system observational tests. The line ar evolutions of the metric, vector field and scalar field perturbations and their consequences for the observations of the cosmic microwave background are investigated.
