The modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) have been formulated as a modification of the Poisson equation for the Newtonian gravitational field. This theory generically predicts a violation of the strong version of the equivalence principle and as a result, the gravitational dynamics of a system depend on the external gravitational field in which the system is embedded. This so-called external field effect has been recently shown to imply the existence of an anomalous quadrupolar correction, along… 
Testing MOND in the Solar System
The Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND) generically predicts a violation of the strong version of the equivalence principle. As a result the gravitational dynamics of a system depends on the external
Testing quasilinear modified Newtonian dynamics in the Solar System
A unique signature of the modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) paradigm is its peculiar behavior in the vicinity of the points where the total Newtonian acceleration exactly cancels. In the Solar
Combined Solar system and rotation curve constraints on MOND
The Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND) paradigm generically predicts that the external gravitational field in which a system is embedded can produce effects on its internal dynamics. In this
On the problem of deformed spherical systems in Modified Newtonian Dynamics
Based on Newtonian dynamics, observations show that the luminous masses of astrophysical objects that are the size of a galaxy or larger are not enough to generate the measured motions which they
Constraints on a MOND effect for isolated aspherical systems in the deep Newtonian regime from orbital motions
The dynamics of non-spherical systems described by MOND theories arising from generalizations of the Poisson equation is affected by an extra MONDian quadrupolar potential φQ even if they are
Coupling the nongravitational forces and modified Newton dynamics for cometary orbits
In recent work (Milgrom 2009, Blanchet & Novak 2011), the authors showed that MOdified Newton Dynamics (MOND) have a non-negligible secular perturbation effect on planets with large semi-major axes
Gravitational Anomalies in the Solar System
Mindful of the anomalous perihelion precession of Mercury discovered by Le Verrier in the second half of the nineteenth century and its successful explanation by Einstein with his General Theory of
RAyMOND: an N-body and hydrodynamics code for MOND
The LCDM concordance cosmological model is supported by a wealth of observational evidence, particularly on large scales. At galactic scales, however, the model is poorly constrained and recent
Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND): Observational Phenomenology and Relativistic Extensions
It is shown that many of these puzzling observations are predicted by one single relation — Milgrom’s law — involving an acceleration constant a0 on the order of the square-root of the cosmological constant in natural units.
Radioscience simulations in General Relativity and in alternative theories of gravity
This paper deals with tests of general relativity (GR) in the Solar System using tracking observables from planetary spacecraft. We present a new software that simulates the Range and Doppler signals


Does the missing mass problem signal the breakdown of Newtonian gravity
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
Gravitational polarization and the phenomenology of MOND
The modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) has been proposed as an alternative to the dark matter paradigm; the philosophy behind is that there is no dark matter and we witness a violation of the
Escaping from modified Newtonian dynamics
We present a new test of modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) on galactic scales, based on the escape speed in the Solar Neighbourhood. This test is independent from other empirical successes of MOND
Relativistic effects and solar oblateness from radar observations of planets and spacecraft
We used more than 250 000 high-precision American and Russian radar observations of the inner planets and spacecraft obtained in the period 1961–2003 to test the relativistic parameters and to
MOND effects in the inner Solar system
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
Dark matter versus modifications of the gravitational inverse-square law: results from planetary motion in the Solar system
Dark matter or modifications of the Newtonian inverse-square law in the Solar system are studied with accurate planetary astrometric data. From extraperihelion precession and possible changes in the
Modified Newtonian dynamics as an alternative to dark matter
▪ Abstract Modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) is an empirically motivated modification of Newtonian gravity or inertia suggested by Milgrom as an alternative to cosmic dark matter. The basic idea is
A modification of the newtonian dynamics as a possible alternative to the hidden mass hypothesis
The author considers the possibility that there is not, in fact, much hidden mass in galaxies and galaxy systems. If a certain modified version of the Newtonian dynamics is used to describe the
A tensor—vector—scalar framework for modified dynamics and cosmic dark matter
I describe a tensor-vector-scalar theory that reconciles the galaxy-scale success of modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) with the cosmological scale evidence for cold dark matter (CDM). The theory
