Time in Quantum Mechanics by Curt A. Moyer

Small book cover: Time in Quantum Mechanics

Time in Quantum Mechanics
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 39

Description:
The failure of conventional quantum theory to recognize time as an observable and to admit time operators is addressed. Instead of focusing on the existence of a time operator for a given Hamiltonian, we emphasize the role of the Hamiltonian as the generator of translations in time to construct time states.
