## Abstract

The Mach momentum qA of a particle, the product of its conjectured Mach charge q and the ambient Mach vector potential A, is the homolog of its electromagnetic inductive momentum. If the particle's velocity is , its ?inertial mass? is the ratio m = qA/v. It is conjectured that the field of the Mach charge is propagated at hyperluminal velocity, causing physical relations underlying quantum laws presently understood as ?acausality,? ?nonlocal action,? or ?action-at-a-distance.?
