in Nonlocal Gravity

Published in print:
2017
Published Online:
July 2017
ISBN:
9780198803805
eISBN:

Subject:
Physics, Particle Physics / Astrophysics / Cosmology, Theoretical, Computational, and Statistical Physics

Is gravity nonlocal? Einstein interpreted the principle of equivalence of inertial and gravitational masses to mean that there exists a profound relationship between inertia and gravitation. Based on ... More
