I didn't DOUBT that they had the calculation, I just wanted to SEE it for myself (if the text came across differently then that's my fault).<br /><br />But no, I am not a MOND expert.

The prediction can be found in Bekenstein & Milgrom 1984 equation 1b. See sections 1 and 2 for the derivation of said equation. Close to a0 where the prediction switches from Milgromian to Newtonian, this depends on the choice of interpolation function. There are several known as the "simple", "standard", "exponential", "Bekenstein" and "Hees" interpolating functions. The RAR is the usual MOND law with an exponential interpolation. These functions all produce the same results for accelerations more than a0 away from a0 and are nearly identical at a0 (they vary the sharpness of the transition). For that see section 6.2 of the main MOND review by Famaey en McGaugh (2012).<br /><br />These two papers are the absolute minimum knowledge concerning MOND. If you haven't read those two you just haven't read up on MOND.M Huisjeshttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03391795814736127123noreply@blogger.com
