Details

Why is there an arrow of time in a universe guided, on the fundamental level, by time-symmetric microscopic laws? What role does entropy play in explaining the difference between past and future? Is the passage of time real or just a stubborn illusion?   The interdisciplinary summer school wants to tackle these questions head-on. By bringing together young researchers, graduate students, and internationally acclaimed experts working on statistical mechanics, quantum foundations, and the philosophy of science, we will investigate the nature of time in light of modern physics and clarify its relation to entropy.
