Mach's Principle and Evolution of the Universe
1 May 2006
Within the framework of Mach's principle and of D.W. Sciama's physical
interpretation of it, a quantitative evaluation of the inertial mass as
a function of the density of the universe and of the epoch is obtained.
The calculation is somewhat similar to the solution of Olbers's paradox.
The result shows that the inertial mass varies as the universe expands
except for a flat, Euclidean universe. This leads to insights on the Principle
This is a theoretical paper on cosmology. If you are knowledgeable of
the field and bother read my paper, I would be very interested and grateful
in your comments, even bad.
