Entropic Time
Abstract
The formulation of quantum mechanics within the framework of entropic dynamics includes several new elements. In this paper we concentrate on one of them: the implications for the theory of time. Entropic time is introduced as a bookkeeping device to keep track of the accumulation of changes. One new feature is that, unlike other concepts of time appearing in the socalled fundamental laws of physics, entropic time incorporates a natural distinction between past and future.
