Presents a new mechanics that replaces Einstein's theories of relativity and Implements Mach's principle quantitatively based on Weber's relational law and the principle of dynamical equilibrium. The theory explains Newton's bucket experiment as due to gravitational interaction between the water and the distant universe when in relative motion. The book is intended for physicists, engineers, mathematicians, historians, philosophers of science and students.
