Title: Simplifying nonlocal gravity
Abstract: The structure of a recent nonlocal generalization of Einstein's theory of gravitation by Mashhoon et al. is briefly analyzed. By means of a covariant technique, an expanded version of the nonlocality tensor which constitutes the theory is derived. This leads to a simplification which sheds light on the fundamental structure of the theory and may prove useful in the search for exact solutions of nonlocal gravity.
