  • 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 distribution ρ is a solution of the Poisson equation for the modified source density ˆ ρ =− (4πG) −1 ∇· g, where g = ν(|g N |/a0)g N , and g N is the Newtonian acceleration field of ρ. This makes φ simply the scalar potential of the algebraic acceleration field g. The theory thus involves solving only linear… CONTINUE READING
