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
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.
