In science:

Since we will define the arrow of time as a global feature of the universe, it is interesting to see how this definition of time-symmetry applies to cosmology.
The cosmological origin of time-asymmetry
But even in the time-symmetric case, it is not admissible to suppose that the sub-universes A and B have opposite time-orientations.
The cosmological origin of time-asymmetry
After an infinite number of Gaussian iterations this density will evolve, as before, to the universal time-independent invariant density.
Iterated random walk
We take an axisymmetric rotating universe model by crossing with a time dependent factor and evaluate its force and momentum in this evolving universe.
Force and Momentum in an Evolving Axisymmetric Universe Model
We neglected the expansion of the universe because the relevant time scales are much smaller than the age of the universe.
Stable Models of superacceleration
In Chapter 5, I will return to the idea of a classical universal reversible TM, and bring it to the world of quantum computing. I then investigate simple universal translationally and time-independent Hamiltonians which could be used to simulate any quantum computation in a 1D system.
Local Hamiltonians in Quantum Computation
This requires the dynamics of the universe to produce a random unitary which would take exponential time in the size of the universe.
Large Deviation Bounds for k-designs
This uncertainty is of a global and universal character and is related to conjectural stochastic type of alteration of the complex time parameter, to complex and effectively random nature of the physical time itself .
Algbrodynamics over complex space and phase extension of the Minkowski geometry
We find that local quenching in these systems gives time dependent correlation functions that have universal behavior on sufficiently long time and length scales.
Quantum noise and entanglement generated by a local quantum quench
Interestingly, we also find that the time dependent correlation functions have a universal scaling behavior as in the case of the global quench.41 However, the universal behavior is characteristic of an orbifold theory of the original system.
Quantum noise and entanglement generated by a local quantum quench
From equation (63), we observe that at the time of early universe the cosmological constant (Λ) is positive (t < 0.39) and it decreases as time increases.
