Abstract

Observations indicate that ordinary matter, the baryons, influence the structural properties of dark matter on galactic scales. One such indication is the radial acceleration relation, which is a tight correlation between the measured gravitational acceleration and that expected from the baryons. We show here that the dark matter density profile that has been motivated by dissipative dark matter models, including mirror dark matter, can reproduce this radial acceleration relation.
