Abstract

The inertial and gravitational properties ofintrinsic spin are discussed and some of the recent workin this area is briefly reviewed. The extension ofrelativistic wave equations to accelerated systems and gravitational fields is criticallyexamined. A nonlocal theory of accelerated observers ispresented and its predictions are compared withobservation.
