Can perturbative quantum gravity explain dark matter?

  1. Jun 20, 2014 #1
    I have heard that perturbative quantum gravity calculation predicts an increase of constant G at large distances.

    So I simply wonder

    can this growth in G naturally explain the galaxy rotation velocity curve?

    I think you are mistaken... QG predicts the increase of G at small distances (or large energies).
