Draft, 11/30/79 – “General Varieties of Temporal Irreversibility” t, 15pp., unfinished, with A. Rechel-Cohn (Harvard University), not on the list. Abstract: Several partially new general varieties of temporal irreversibility are developed, exemplified, and related to entropy. These are related to the following physical constraints: (1) the classical character of the observables actually measured in an experimental probe of the state of a quantum system; (2) the local character of the observables actually measured in an experimental probe of a cosmological state; (3) positivity of the energy in a covariant quantum system. The quantum representation of phenomena such as white and black holes is brought into relationship with semigroups of isometries and their adjoints, and the entropy of localized states treated in this formalism. An extremely general notion of a uniform time scale associated with an evolving system and its entropy is proposed and partially validated. 7-2; 17-3.
