What is Mass?

Authors: Mark A. Newstead, Stephen C. Newstead
Comments: 5 pages

In this paper we investigate the connection between energy and mass. From this we propose that mass is "generated" when a volume of space contains a sufficient amount of localised energy. We then show how this definition explains various phenomena, for example why mass increases with velocity.
