MOND theory

  title={MOND theory},
  author={Mordehai Milgrom},
A general account of MOND theory is given. I start with the basic tenets of MOND, which posit departure from standard dynamics in the limit of low acceleration – below an acceleration constant a0 – where dynamics become scale invariant. I list some of the salient predictions of these tenets. The special role of a0 and its significance are then discussed. In particular, I stress its coincidence with cosmologically relevant accelerations, which may point to MOND having deep interplay with… Expand
MOND vs. dark matter in light of historical parallels
MOND is a paradigm that contends to account for the mass discrepancies in the Universe without invoking `dark' components, such as `dark matter' and `dark energy'. It does so by supplanting NewtonianExpand
Noncovariance at low accelerations as a route to MOND
MOND has limelighted the fact that Newtonian dynamics and general relativity (GR) have not been verified to any accuracy at very low accelerations---at or below the MOND acceleration ${a}_{0}$:Expand
Scale Invariance at low accelerations (aka MOND) and the dynamical anomalies in the Universe
Galactic systems, and the Universe at large, exhibit large dynamical anomalies: The observed matter in them falls very short of providing enough gravity to account for their dynamics. The mainstreamExpand
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
Testing gravity in the local universe
General relativity (GR) has stood as the most accurate description of gravity for the last 100 years, weathering a barrage of rigorous tests. However, attempts to derive GR from a more fundamentalExpand

The aim of this work is to provide a general description of the corpuscular theory of gravity. After reviewing some of the major conceptual issues emerging from the semiclassical and field theoreticExpand
A machian request for the equivalence principle in extended gravity and nongeodesic motion
Starting from the origin of Einstein’s general relativity (GR), the request of Mach on the theory’s structure has been the core of the foundational debate. That problem is strictly connected with theExpand
Universal expansion with spatially varying G
We calculate the expansion of the Universe under the assumptions that G varies in space and the radial size r of the Universe is very large (we call this the MOND regime of varying-G gravity). TheExpand
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
Galactic dynamics and long-range quantum gravity
We explore in a systematic way the possibility that long-range quantum gravity effects could play a role at galactic scales and could be responsible for the phenomenology commonly attributed to darkExpand
