Nonlocal theory of accelerated observers
Metadata[+] Show full item record
A nonlocal theory of accelerated observers is developed on the basis of the hypothesis that an electromagnetic wave can never stand completely still with respect to an observer. In the eikonal approximation, the nonlocal theory reduces to the standard extension of Lorentz invariance to accelerated observers. The validity of the nonlocal theory would exclude the possibility of existence of any basic scalar field in nature. The observational consequences of this theory are briefly discussed.
