I revisit Jordan’s derivation of Einstein’s formula for energy fluctuations in the black body in thermal equilibrium. This formula is usually taken to represent the unification of the wave and the particle aspects of the electromagnetic field since the fluctuations can be shown to be the sum of wave-like and particle-like contributions. However, in Jordan’s treatment there is no mention of the Planck distribution and all averages are performed with respect to pure number states of radiation…

Time, (Inverse) Temperature and Cosmological Inflation as Entanglement
We present arguments to the effect that time and temperature can be viewed as a form of quantum entanglement. Furthermore, if temperature is thought of as arising from the quantum mechanical
