Two-body relaxation in modified Newtonian dynamics

Abstract:

A naive extension to modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) of the standard computation of the two-body relaxation time t 2b implies that 2b is comparable to the crossing time regardless of the number W of stars in the system. This computation is questionable in view of the non-linearity of MOND's field equation. A non-standard approach to the calculation of t 2b is developed that can be extended to MOND whenever discreten...
