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*.
