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 of the effect are not generic to the MOND paradigm, but depend on the particular MOND formulation at hand. However, the modified Poisson formulation, on which I concentrate, uniquely predicts a subtle anomaly that may be detected in planetary and spacecraft motions (and perhaps in other precision…

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
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
A novel MOND effect in isolated high-acceleration systems
I discuss a novel MOND effect that entails a correction to the dynamics of isolated mass systems even when they are deep in the Newtonian regime: systems whose extent R 0 is a numerical factor that
MOND Orbits in the Oort Cloud
We numerically investigate the features of typical orbits occurring in the Oort cloud (r\approx 50-150 kAU) in the low-acceleration regime of the MOdified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND). We take into
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
Galactic orbital motions in the dark matter, modified Newtonian dynamics and modified gravity scenarios
We simultaneously integrate in a numerical way the equations of motion of both the Magellanic Clouds (MCs) in the MOdified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND), MOdified Gravity (MOG) and cold dark matter (CDM)
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
External field effect of modified Newtonian dynamics in the Solar system
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
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.
Can MOND type hypotheses be tested in a free fall laboratory environment
The extremely small accelerations of objects required for the the onset of modified Newtonian dynamics, or MOND, makes testing the hypothesis in conventional terrestrial laboratories virtually


Dynamics with a Nonstandard Inertia-Acceleration Relation: An Alternative to Dark Matter in Galactic Systems
Abstract We investigate particle dynamics that is governed by a nonstandard kinetic action of a special form. We are guided by a phenomenological scheme-the modified dynamics (MOND)-that imputes the
Modified Newtonian dynamics habitats within the solar system
MOdified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND) is an interesting alternative to the presence of dark matter in galaxies. We here examine the possibility that mild or even strong MOND behavior may become evident
Dwarf Satellite Galaxies in the Modified Dynamics
In the modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) the inner workings of dwarf satellites can be greatly affected by their mother galaxy—over and beyond tidal effects. Because of MOND's nonlinearity, a
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
Rings and shells of "dark matter'' as mond artifacts
MOND predicts that a mass, M, contained within its transition radius, r(t) equivalent to ( MG/a(0))(1/2), may exhibit a feature at about that radius in the form of a shell, or projected ring, in the
Confrontation of MOdified Newtonian Dynamics with the rotation curves of early-type disc galaxies
We extend the MOdified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND) analysis to a sample of 17 high surface brightness, early-type disc galaxies with rotation curves derived from a combination of 21-cm H-I line
Refining the mond interpolating function and teves lagrangian
The phenomena customarily described with dark matter or modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) have been argued by Bekenstein to be the consequences of a covariant scalar field, controlled by a free
Modified Newtonian dynamics in the Milky Way
Both microlensing surveys and radio-frequency observations of gas flow imply that the inner Milky Way is completely dominated by baryons, contrary to the predictions of standard cold dark matter
The modified Newtonian dynamics—MOND and its implications for new physics
No more salient issue exists in contemporary astrophysics and cosmology than that of the elusive ‘dark matter’. For many years already Milgrom's paradigm of modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) has
