Die Forschungsgruppe G.O. Mueller referiert in der Ergänzung des Kapitels 4 ihrer Dokumentation diese Arbeit von Peter Graneau:


Beabsichtigt eine Verbindung der Mechanik von Newton mit Machs Prinzip herzustellen (S. 75): „This essay proposes amendments to Newton’s second and third laws of motion. The amended laws permit the formulation of a truly Machian theory of inertia in which the three forces of inertia, „opposition to free fall, centrifugal, and Coriolis“, have distributed reaction forces in the distant universe. This can only be achieved with simultaneous far-actions.“

Mit einem Nachweis der instantanen Fernwirkung wird eine Behauptung der Speziellen Relativitätstheorie widerlegt. Die Annahme der Fernwirkung stammt bereits von Newton (S. 81): „… for gravitation Newton, for the first time, made the bold assumption that an interaction force could span any distance. All the astronomical evidence at our disposal suggests that this is true. To proclaim that gravitational attractions were truly universal and reached the furthest corners of the cosmos was a most courageous contention coming, as it did, after the two thousand year reign of Aristotle’s contact action dogma.“

Newton hat sein Gravitationsgesetz in den „Principia“ nicht genau definiert, aber seine verschiedenen Äußerungen und Berechnungen erlauben folgende Zusammenfassung (S. 81-82):

Newton’s Universal law of gravitation: Every particle of matter attracts every other particle of matter with a force varying directly as the product of their masses and inversely as the square of the distance between them. It must be remembered that ‚attraction‘ always stands for a simultaneous interaction between a pair of two particles. It is defined by Newton’s third law. The philosophical arguments and the experimental facts which support simultaneous far-actions at the end of the twentieth century have been more fully discussed in a book [11: P. Graneau, N. Graneau: Newton versus Einstein. New York 1993].“
