After a succinct review of the MOND paradigm--with its phenomenology, and its various underlying theories--I concentrate on so called modified inertia (MI) formulations of MOND, which have so far received only little attention. These share with all MOND theories the salient MOND predictions, such as asymptotically flat rotation curves, and the universal mass-asymptotic-speed relation. My emphasis here is, however, on the fact that MI theories can differ substantially from their "modified… Expand

A local Lagrangian for MOND as modified inertia
We propose a local Lagrangian for a point particle where its inertia part is modified in the regime of small accelerations. For the standard gravitational central force, it recovers the deep MOdifiedExpand
MOND laws of galactic dynamics
MOND predicts a number of laws that galactic systems should obey irrespective of their complicated, haphazard, and mostly unknowable histories -- as Kepler's laws are obeyed by planetary systems. TheExpand
The failures of the standard model of cosmology require a new paradigm
Cosmological models that invoke warm or cold dark matter cannot explain observed regularities in the properties of dwarf galaxies, their highly anisotropic spatial distributions, nor the correlationExpand
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. Expand
Galaxy interactions: dark matter vs. Modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND)
(doctoral thesis of Michal Bilek, finished on June 19, 2015) MOND is an observational rule for predicting the acceleration of stars and galaxies from the distribution of the visible matter. ItExpand

A global attribute of the rotation curve that might provide a convenient discriminant between theories when applied to isolated, pure-disk galaxies that are everywhere deep in the modified Newtonian dynamics regime is considered. Expand
A Philosophical Approach to MOND: Assessing the Milgromian Research Program in Cosmology
Dark matter is a fundamental component of the standard cosmological model, but in spite of four decades of increasingly sensitive searches, no-one has yet detected a single dark-matter particle inExpand
The motion of test particles and cosmological interpretations: the role of MOND1
Throughout history, observations of the motions of objects in the Universe have provided the foundation for various cosmological models. In many cases, the invoked causes of the observed motionExpand
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 areExpand
Isothermal distributions in MONDian gravity as a simple unifying explanation for the ubiquitous $\rho$ $\alpha$ $r^{-3}$ density profiles in tenuous stellar halos
That the stellar halo of the Milky Way has a density profile which, to first approximation, satisfiesρr –3 and has been known for a long time. More recently, it has become clear that M31 also hasExpand


MD or DM? Modified dynamics at low accelerations vs dark matter
The MOND paradigm posits a departure from standard Newtonian dynamics, and from General Relativity, in the limit of small accelerations. The resulting modified dynamics aim to account for the massExpand
The baryonic Tully-Fisher relation (BTFR) is an empirical relation between baryonic mass and rotation velocity in disk galaxies. It provides tests of galaxy formation models in ΛCDM and ofExpand
Entropic Gravity, Minimum Temperature, and Modified Newtonian Dynamics
Verlinde's heuristic argument for the interpretation of the standard Newtonian gravitational force as an entropic force is generalized by the introduction of a minimum temperature (or maximum waveExpand
Nonlocal metric formulations of MOND with sufficient lensing
We demonstrate how to construct purely metric modifications of gravity which agree with general relativity in the weak field regime appropriate to the solar system, but which possess an ultra-weakExpand
MOND reveals the thermodynamics of gravity
We show that treating gravitation as a thermodynamical theory leads to the modified Newton dynamics (MOND) equations if one takes into account the Hubble's expansion. Then the universal MONDExpand
