Quantum Time: Formalism and Applications
Treating time on an equal footing with space in quantum mechanics is a natural desire motivated by the similar concept in special relativity. We believe that this concept can shed light on ambiguous problems in quantum mechanics. In this thesis, we develop a new quantum formalism in which time is a dynamic variable and study its e ffect on some applications in quantum mechanics. We show that treating space and time equally not only eff ectively solves the problem of arrival time, but also greatly enhances our understanding of quantum mechanics in general.
