Patterns on the Sky: Galaxy Dynamics Edition
Like planets, galaxies are observed to obey a number of strict rules that govern their dynamics. Unlike planetary systems, this behavior is not explicable with known physics – hence the dark matter problem. I will describe progress in quantifying the relations obeyed by extragalactic systems, which have deep implications of fundamental physics.
