The Department of Logic & Philosophy of Science Colloquium Series presents

"When Does Quantum Mechanics Distinguish Past from Future?"
with Bryan Roberts, University of Pittsburgh, Department of History and Philosophy of Science

January 13, 2012
3:00 p.m.
Social Science Tower, Room 777

There is a sense in which, if ordinary quantum mechanics is restricted to just one kind of particle, it does not distinguish the past from the future. Roberts' talk will explain how, when ordinary Galilei-invariant quantum mechanics has position as a complete set of commuting observables, the theory is time reversal invariant.
