Abstract Note  This thesis is devoted to the systematic study of nonlocal theories that respect Lorentz invariance and are devoid of new, unphysical degrees of freedom. Such theories are attractive for phenomenological applications since they are mostly unconstrained by current experiments. Nonlocality has played an increasingly important role in the physics of the last decades, appearing in effective actions in quantum field theory, and arising naturally in string theory and noncommutative geometry. It may even be a necessary ingredient for quantum theories of gravity. It is a feature of quantum entanglement, and may even solve the longstanding black hole information loss problem. ???Nonlocality??? is a broad concept with many promising and fruitful applications in theoretical and mathematical physics. After a historical and pedagogical introduction into the concept of nonlocality the author develops the notion of nonlocal Green functions to study various nonlocal weakfield problems in quantum mechanics, quantum field theory, gravity, and quantum field theory in curved spacetime. This thesis fills a gap in the literature by providing a selfcontained exploration of weakfield effects in nonlocal theories, thereby establishing a ???nonlocal intuition??? which may serve as a stepping stone for studies of the full, nonlinear problem of nonlocality
