Lee Smolin

(Submitted on 6 Oct 2016)

Four principles are proposed to underlie the quantum theory of gravity. We show that these suffice to recover the Einstein equations. We also suggest that MOND results from a modification of the classical equivalence principle, due to quantum gravity effects.

MOND can explain most of the effects attributed to dark matter, and Smolin is proposing that a general feature of a QG is MOND like effects due to QG. in effect Smolin is providing a quantum basis for an empirical curve-fit.
