  • Nonlocal Gravity by Bahram Mashhoon
    Nonlocal Gravity (English, Hardback) Bahram Mashhoon

    Relativity theory assumes locality, without accounting for the observer's past history. This book introduces nonlocality, or history dependence, into relativity theory. Inertia and gravitation are deeply tied, suggesting gravity may be nonlocal. The gravitational memory of past events must then be taken into account.
