### modified Newtonian dynamics

**(MOND)**
(alternative theory of gravity addressing "dark matter")

**Modified Newtonian dynamics** (**MOND**) is
a theory of gravity developed in 1983 by
Mordehai Milgrom, offering an explanation for
the same dynamics that dark matter explains.
It is not widely accepted in astrophysics.

**Entropic gravity** (or **emergent gravity**)
is a 2007 theory developed by Erik Verlinde
that bases a MOND-like gravity on
**string theory** and hypothesizes a relation between
gravity to **entropy**. It results in
divergence from the usual gravitational
formula at extremely small distances.
