The familiar textbook quantum mechanics of laboratory measurements incorporates a quantum mechanical arrow of time—the direction in time in which state vector reduction operates. This arrow is usually assumed to coincide with the direction of the thermodynamic arrow of the quasiclassical realm of everyday experience. But in the more general context of cosmology we seek an explanation of all observed arrows, and the relations between them, in terms of the conditions that specify our particular… CONTINUE READING
