The recently developed code for N-body/hydrodynamics simulations in Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND), known as RAyMOND, is used to investigate the consequences of MOND on structure formation in a cosmological context, with a particular focus on the velocity field. This preliminary study investigates the results obtained with the two formulations of MOND implemented in RAyMOND, as well as considering the effects of changing the choice of MOND interpolation function, and the cosmological… Expand
Consequences of the external field effect for MOND disc galaxies in galaxy clusters
Galaxies within galaxy clusters are known to be subject to a wide variety of environmental effects, both gravitational and hydrodynamical. In this study, we examine the purely gravitationalExpand
MOND simulation suggests an origin for some peculiarities in the Local Group
The Milky Way (MW) and Andromeda (M31) galaxies possess rotating planes of satellites. Their formation has not been explained satisfactorily yet. It was suggested that the MW and M31 satellites areExpand
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
Testing gravity with interstellar precursor missions
We consider how the trajectory of an interstellar precursor mission would be affected by the gravity of the Sun in Newtonian and Milgromian dynamics (MOND). The Solar gravity is ${\approx 50\%}$Expand
A new formulation of the external field effect in MOND and numerical simulations of ultra-diffuse dwarf galaxies $-$ application to NGC 1052-DF2 and NGC 1052-DF4.
The ultra-diffuse dwarf galaxy NGC 1052-DF2 (DF2) has ten (eleven) measured globular clusters (GCs) with a line-of-sight velocity dispersion of $\sigma=7.8^{+5.2}_{-2.2}\,$km/sExpand
The Hydra I cluster core: II. Kinematic complexity in a rising velocity dispersion profile around the cD galaxy NGC 3311
NGC 3311, the central galaxy of the Hydra I cluster, shows signatures of recent infall of satellite galaxies from the cluster environment. Previous work has shown that the line-of-sight velocityExpand
The KBC void and Hubble tension contradict ΛCDM on a Gpc scale − Milgromian dynamics as a possible solution
The KBC void is a local underdensity with the observed relative density contrast $\delta \equiv 1 - \rho/\rho_{0} = 0.46 \pm 0.06$ between 40 and 300 Mpc around the Local Group. If mass is conservedExpand
The ultra-diffuse dwarf galaxies NGC 1052-DF2 and 1052-DF4 are in conflict with standard cosmology
Recently van Dokkum et al. (2018b) reported that the galaxy NGC 1052-DF2 (DF2) lacks dark matter if located at $20$ Mpc from Earth. In contrast, DF2 is a dark-matter-dominated dwarf galaxy with aExpand
The Phantom of RAMSES user guide for galaxy simulations using Milgromian and Newtonian gravity
This document describes the general process of setting up, running, and analysing disc galaxy simulations using the freely available program PHANTOM OF RAMSES (POR). This implements MilgromianExpand

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 recentExpand
Galactic haloes in MONDian cosmological simulations
In this paper, a series of high-resolution N-body simulations is presented in which the equations of motion have been changed to account for modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND). It is shown that aExpand
The abundance of galaxy clusters in MOND: Cosmological simulations with massive neutrinos
We present a new Particle-Mesh cosmological N-body code for accurately solving the modified Poisson equation of the Quasi Linear formulation of MOND. We generate initial conditions for the AngusExpand
Relativistic gravitation theory for the MOND paradigm
The modified newtonian dynamics (MOND) paradigm of Milgrom can boast of a number of successful predictions regarding galactic dynamics; these are made without the assumption that dark matter plays aExpand
Galactic Halos in MONDian Cosmological Simulations
We present results derived from a high-resolution cosmological N -body simulation in which the equations of motion have been changed to account for MOdified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND). It is shownExpand
Cosmological structure formation under MOND: a new numerical solver for Poisson's equation
We present a novel solver for an analogue to Poisson's equation in the framework of modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND). This equation is highly non-linear and hence standard codes based upon treeExpand
Cosmological simulations in MOND: the cluster scale halo mass function with light sterile neutrinos
We use our Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND) cosmological particle-mesh N-body code to investigate the feasibility of structure formation in a framework involving MOND and light sterile neutrinos inExpand
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
Modified Newtonian dynamics of large-scale structure
We examine the implications of modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) on the large-scale structure in a Friedmann-Robertson-Walker universe. We employ a 'Jeans swindle' to write a MOND-type relationshipExpand
Large scale structure in Bekenstein's theory of relativistic modified Newtonian dynamics.
It is shown that it may be possible to reproduce observations of the cosmic microwave background and galaxy distributions with Bekenstein's theory of MOND, and the evolution of the scalar field is akin to that of tracker quintessence fields. Expand
