Do we Observe Quantum Gravity Effects at Galactic Scales?
Institute of Physics, University of Mainz, Staudinger Weg 7, 55099 Mainz, Germany
The nonperturbative renormalization group flow of Quantum Einstein Gravity (QEG) is reviewed. It is argued that there could be strong renormalization effects at large distances, in particular a scale dependent Newton constant, which mimic the presence of dark matter at galactic and cosmological scales.
