Time in Quantum Mechanics

Lecture no. 8 from the course: Mysteries of Modern Physics: Time

Time in Quantum Mechanics

Taught by Professor Sean Carroll | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Quantum mechanics is the most precise theory ever invented, yet it leads to startling interpretations of the nature of reality. Probe a quantum state called the collapse of the wave function that may underlie the arrow of time. Are the indications that it shows irreversibility real or only illusory?

He does such an excellent job of weaving all the concepts back to each other throughout the exposition.

Really great teacher - doesn't feel like a lecture, but like you lucked out at a dinner party and were seated across from the most interesting person in the room. He's very engaging, very conversational, not like a prepared speech. Highly recommended.
