In Modified Gravity Theories > s.a. higher-order gravity; Mimetic Gravity; modified lorentz group; modified newtonian dynamics [in TeVeS].
* In scalar-tensor gravity: In some versions of these theories the structure of a "scalarized" neutron star (one with an appreciable scalar charge) can differ significantly from that in general relativity; Numerical simulations have been carried out of neutron-star binaries which show that during the merger phase the stars can become "dynamically scalarized".
