Analysis of observations of gravitationally lensed quasars



The dependence of gravitational amplification on the telescope diameter allowing for the gravitational potential described in terms of action at a distance is shown here. We suggest using such an effect for estimation of the number of compact masses which occur successively on the quasar light passage way.
