Does the missing mass problem signal the breakdown of Newtonian gravity

- J. Bekenstein, M. Milgrom
- Physics
- 1 November 1984

We consider a nonrelativistic potential theory for gravity which differs from the Newtonian theory. The theory is built on the basic assumptions of the modified dynamics, which were shown earlier to… Expand

Quasi-linear formulation of MOND

- M. Milgrom
- Physics
- 29 November 2009

A new formulation of modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) as a modified-potential theory of gravity is propounded. In effect, the theory dictates that the MOND potential φ produced by a mass… Expand

The Mond Limit from Spacetime Scale Invariance

- M. Milgrom
- Physics
- 22 October 2008

The modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) limit is shown to follow from a requirement of spacetime scale invariance of the equations of motion for nonrelativistic, purely gravitational systems, i.e.,… Expand

MOND effects in the inner Solar system

- M. Milgrom
- Physics
- 25 June 2009

I pinpoint a previously unrecognized MOND effect that may act in the inner Solar system, and is due to the galactic acceleration gg = ηa 0 : a byproduct of the MOND external-field effect. Predictions… Expand

Bimetric MOND gravity

- M. Milgrom
- Physics
- 4 December 2009

A new relativistic formulation of MOND is advanced, involving two metrics as independent degrees of freedom: the MOND metric g{sub {mu}}{sub {nu}}, to which alone matter couples, and an auxiliary… Expand

Isothermal spheres in the modified dynamics

- M. Milgrom
- Physics
- 1 December 1984

On considere des spheres isothermes soumises a leur propre gravitation (isotrope et anisotrope) en utilisant une dynamique qui differe de la newtonienne dans la limite des petites accelerations. On… Expand

THE MODIFIED DYNAMICS AS A VACUUM EFFECT

- M. Milgrom
- Physics
- 28 May 1998

Abstract To explain the appearance in MOND of a cosmological acceleration constant, a0, I suggest that MOND inertia - as embodied in the actions of free particles and fields - is due to effects of… Expand

The central surface density of ‘dark haloes’ predicted by MOND

- M. Milgrom
- Physics
- 11 September 2009

Prompted by the recent claim, by Donato et al., of a quasi-universal central surface density of galaxy dark matter haloes, I look at what MOND has to say on the subject. MOND, indeed, predicts a… Expand

The MOND paradigm

- M. Milgrom
- Physics
- 21 January 2008

I review briefly different aspects of the MOND paradigm, with emphasis on phenomenology, epitomized here by many MOND laws of galactic motion--analogous to Kepler's laws of planetary motion. I then… Expand
