Title: Nonlocal forces of inertia in cosmology
Author: Assis, AKT
Graneau, P
Abstract: This paper reviews the origin of inertia according to Mach's principle and Weber's law of gravitation. The resulting theory is based on simultaneous nonlocal gravitational interactions between particles in the solar system mid others in the remote universe beyond the Milky Way galaxy. It explains the precession of the perihelion of Mercury. A most important implication of the Mack-Weber theory of the force of inertia is the necessity for a large amount of uniformly distributed matter in the galactic universe. This matter could be the source of the cosmic background radiation. Nonlocal inertia forces ave compatible with a static universe and also with an expanding universe but the latter would demand slow changes in the mass of particles and the gravitational constant.
