Bryan W. Roberts (LSE), “New directions for passing time”

The problem of passing time is that it is a pervasive part of our experience, and yet seems to have no natural description in our best scientific theories. After introducing this problem I will point out a new way forward using the concept of ‘time observables’, and then indicate some further applications such as for the characterisation of the direction of time.
