Title: MACH'S PRINCIPLE AND A RELATIVISTIC THEORY OF GRAVITATION

Abstract

The role of Mach's principle in physics is discussed in relation to the equivalencc principle. The difficulties encountered in attempting io incorporate Mach's principle into general relativity are discussed. A modified relativistic theory of gravitation, apparently compatible with Mach's principle, is developed. (auth)
