Title: A Discrete Machian Model: Fermions
Abstract: A new model of quantum gravity phenomenology is discussed. This ``discrete Machian model" is based on two assumptions (i) non-uniformities in the overall matter distribution affect the inertial properties of particles and (ii) spatial geometry is discrete and random. Using the framework of effective field theory, the fermionic sector is developed. The resulting theory contains Lorentz invariance violating terms and the non-relativistic effects are explored.
