|Alma mater||Hebrew University
|Known for||Modified Newtonian dynamics|
Mordehai "Motti" Milgrom is an Israeli physicist and professor in the department of Particle Physics and Astrophysics at the Weizmann Institute in Rehovot, Israel. He is best known for his proposal of Modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) as an alternative to the dark matter and galaxy rotation curve problems, in 1981. Milgrom suggests that Newton's Second Law be modified for very small accelerations. In the academic years 1980–1981 and 1985–1986 he was at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton.
Milgrom is married and has three daughters.
