1 2 O ct 2 02 1 A sign of the times

  title={1 2 O ct 2 02 1 A sign of the times},
  author={Jo{\~a}o Magueijo},
We examine in greater detail the recent proposal that time is the conjugate of the constants of nature. Fundamentally distinct times are associated with different constants and we should select the one related to the constant dominating the dynamics in each region or epoch. We show in detail how in regions dominated by a single constant the Hamiltonian constraint can be reframed as a Schrodinger equation in the corresponding time, solved in the connection representation by outgoing-only… 


Lectures on the Cosmological Constant Problem
These lectures on the cosmological constant problem were prepared for the X Mexican School on Gravitation and Mathematical Physics. The problem itself is explained in detail, emphasising the
Canonical quantum gravity and the problem of time
The aim of this paper is to provide a general introduction to the problem of time in quantum gravity. This problem originates in the fundamental conflict between the way the concept of ‘time’ is used

It is shown that the tunneling wave function predicts initial states that lead to inflation, while the Hartle-Hawking wave function does not.
The Anthropic Cosmological Principle
Is there any connection between the vastness of the universes of stars and galaxies and the existence of life on a small planet out in the suburbs of the Milky Way? This book shows that there is. In
Aspects Of Chern-Simons Theory
Lectures at the 1998 Les Houches Summer School: Topological Aspects of Low Dimensional Systems. These lectures contain an introduction to various aspects of Chern-Simons gauge theory: (i) basics of
In canonical quantization of gravity, the state functional does not seem to depend on time. This hampers the physical interpretation of quantum gravity. I critically examine ten major attempts to
