MOND and Cosmology

I review various ideas on MOND cosmology and structure formation beginning with non-relativistic models in analogy with Newtonian cosmology. I discuss relativistic MOND cosmology in the context of Bekenstein's theory and propose an alternative biscalar effective theory of MOND in which the acceleration parameter, a0 is identified with the cosmic time derivative of a matter coupling scalar field and cosmic CDM appears as scalar field oscillations of the auxiliary “coupling strength” field.
