Abstract

Bekenstein's Tensor-Vector-Scalar (TeVeS) theory has had considerable success as a relativistic theory of Modified Newtonian Dynamics. In the strong-field regime it makes many predictions that differ from General Relativity implying this regime provides an excellent testing ground for the theory using both current and future observations of neutron stars and black holes in both the electromagnetic and gravitational wave spectrum. I look at the current status of black hole and neutron star solutions in both the original TeVeS theory and its generalisation, including some key observational properties that differ from General Relativity.
