This paper is essentially a speculation on the realization of Mach's Principle, and we came to the details of the present analysis via the formulation of two questions: (a) Can a globally inertial space & time be associated with a non-trivial global matter distribution? (b) If so, what are the general properties of such a global distribution? 

The discovery of major new phenomenology in spiral discs and its theoretical meaning

The work described in this paper has its origins in a speculation on the realization of Mach's Principle – specifically, in the formulation of two questions: (a) Can a globally inertial space & time

Gravitation in the Fractal D = 2 Inertial Universe: New Phenomenology in Spiral Discs and a Theoretical Basis for MOND

A particular interpretation of Mach's Principle led us to ask if it was possible to have a globally inertial universe that was irreducibly associated with a non-trivial global matter distribution,

Machian Inertia and the Isotropic Universe

This paper addresses the origin of the forces of inertia. It proposes a Newton-Mach particle interaction force between all pairs of particles that depends on their relative acceleration and is

THE CONCEPT OF FRACTAL COSMOS: III. PRESENT STATE

This is the sequel to the previous accounts on the rise and development of the concept of fractal cosmos, up to year 2001 (Grujic 2001, 2002). Here we give an overview of the present-day state of

RUNNING NEWTONIAN COUPLING AND HORIZONLESS SOLUTIONS IN QUANTUM EINSTEIN GRAVITY

It is shown how the exact Nonperturbative Renormalization Group flow of the running Newtonian coupling G(r) in Quantum Einstein Gravity is consistent with the existence of an ultra-violet cutoff...

The large-scale smoothness of the Universe

The Universe is inhomogeneous — and essentially fractal — on the scale of galaxies and clusters of galaxies, but most cosmologists believe that on larger scales it becomes isotropic and homogeneous:
