Axion condensate or modified gravity in dark galaxy halos ?
Abstract: Localized solutions of an axion-like scalar model with a periodic self-interaction are analyzed  as a  model of dark matter halos. Such a cold Bose-Einstein type condensate can provide a substantial contribution to the observed rotations curves of galaxies. However, scalar dark  matter and modified gravity are, to some extend equivalent: After a conformal mapping,  the dependence of the effective Lagrangian on the curvature  bifurcates into several   almost Einsteinian branches, distinguished only by a different  effective gravitational strength  and cosmological constant.
