tensor-vector-scalar (TeVeS) theory

Fr.:

A theory put forward to provide a basis for a relativistic
generalization of the
→ MOdified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND) paradigm.
TeVeS is based on three dynamical fields: a tensor field, a vector
field, and a scalar field. In contrast to general relativity, it has
two metrics, an Einstein metric and a physical metric. TeVeS has
attracted considerable attention, since it can explain many galactic
and cosmological observations without the need for
→ dark matter.

Newtonian dynamics paradigm", Phys. Rev. D, 70, 083509, arXiv:astro-ph/0403694.
