G/109 Time is usually considered as a classical parameter in the laws of motion of non-relativistic quantum-mechanical systems. We take a different, operational approach to time, and towards this goal introduce the concept of local and global clocks, as well as the respective ordering scales. We devise two approaches to investigate limitations to building global clocks and ordering scales from two spatially-separated quantum clocks, under the assumption that these clocks are locally used for ordering.

Please also check the Upcoming Events page for other seminars which might be of interest. For example the Departmental Colloquium talks on Wednesdays sometimes are on mathematical physics. ## Programme for this term
Please note that this is an evolving programme. It is advisable to (re-load and) re-check the page shortly before each talk. There is a mailing list for the seminar announcements. For further details please contact Eli Hawkins. Archive of past Mathematical Physics Seminars: 1999-2007, 2007-today. |
