Time plays a special role in Standard QuantumTheory. The concept of time observable causes manycontroversies there. In Event-Enhanced Quantum Theory(EEQT) Schrodinger's differential equation is replaced by a piecewise deterministic algorithm thatdescribes also the timing of events. This allows us torevisit the problem of time of arrival in quantumtheory. 

Boundary Conditions, Time Reversal and Measurements

This contribution is divided into two parts. In the first one, we argue that the idea of time reversal in Quantum Mechanics is considerably more subtle than generally thought. For example, it is not

An Application of EEQT: Tunneling Times

The mean traversal and reflection times of electrons in the presence of a one-dimensional barrier are simulated using the formalism of the Event-Enhanced Quantum Theory. The results are compared with

Quantum Information and Relativity Theory

Quantum mechanics, information theory, and relativity theory are the basic foundations of theoretical physics. The acquisition of information from a quantum system is the interface of classical and

Time operator within projection evolution model

We apply the projection evolution approach to the particle detection process and calculation of the detection moment. Influence of the essential system properties on the evolution process is

Relativistic Time of Arrival

We propose a covariant algorithm for relativistic ideal measurements and for relativistic continuous measurements, its non-relativistic limit results the algorithm of the Event-Enhanced Quantum

Temporal Non-locality

In this article I investigate several possibilities to define the concept of “temporal non-locality” within the standard framework of quantum theory. In particular, I analyze the notions of

The preliminary measurements have shown that a general tuple-based approach can easily outperform triple-based encodings by several orders of magnitude in terms of query time.

Considering context: reliable entity networks through contextual relationship extraction

The event and relationship attribute recognition system, which labels generic, planned, recurring, and potential events, is addressed with a combination of new machine learning methods, novel linguistic features, and crowd-sourced labeling.

Research Paper: Using Empiric Semantic Correlation to Interpret Temporal Assertions in Clinical Texts

Temporal assertions extracted from narrative clinical reports were compared to facts extracted from a structured clinical database for the same patients to measure the uncertainty of temporal assertions like "3 weeks ago" in clinical texts.



Time of Events in Quantum Theory

We enhance elementary quantum mechanics with three simple postulates that enable us to define time observable. We discuss shortly justification of the new postulates and illustrate the concept with

On quantum jumps, events, and spontaneous localization models

A minimal piecewise deterministic process is given that can be used for a computer simulation of real time series of experiments on single quantum objects.

Event enhanced quantum theory and piecewise deterministic dynamics

The standard formalism of quantum theory is enhanced and definite meaning is given to the concepts of experiment, measurement and event. Within this approach one obtains a uniquely defined piecewise

The results suggest that, contrary to what is commonly assumed, quantum mechanics exhibits a hidden equivalence between independent (time) and dependent (position) variables, analogous to the one revealed by the parametrized formalism in classical mechanics.

Fundamental irreversibility and the concept of events

It is proposed that the transmutation from possibilities to facts should be introduced as an essential element in fundamental theory. This has no bearing on TCP-invariance. If indeterminism is

An evolutionary picture for quantum physics

In the orthodox language of Quantum Mechanics the observer occupies a central position and the only “real events” are measuring results. We argue here that this narrow view is not forced upon us by

On the impossible pilot wave

The strange story of the von Neumann impossibility proof is recalled, and the even stranger story of later impossibility proofs, and how the impossible was done by de Broglie and Bohm. Morals are
