Abstract: Using the multiplicity of solutions for the projectable case of the covariant extension of Hořava-Lifshitz gravity, we show that an appropriate choice for the auxiliary field allows for an effective description of galaxy rotation curves. This description is based on static and spherically symmetric solutions of covariant Hořava-Lifshitz gravity and does not require Dark Matter.
Keywords: modified gravity; covariant Hořava-Lifshitz gravity; static and spherically symmetric solution; galaxy rotation curves
