Accounting for Some Aspects of Dark Matter and Dark Energy via Noncommutative Geometry
ABSTRACT
The purpose of this paper is to seek a connection between noncommutative geometry, an offshoot of string theory, and certain aspects of dark matter and dark energy. The former case is based on a simple mathematical argument showing that the main manifestation of dark matter in connection with flat galactic rotation curves is also a consequence of noncommutative geometry. The latter case requires an examination of the local effect of noncommutative geometry and the subsequent extension to the global phenomenon of an accelerating Universe.
