Ambiguities in order-theoretic formulations of thermodynamics
Speaker(s): Harvey Brown
Abstract: Since the 1909 work of Carathéodory, an axiomatic approach to thermodynamics has gained ground which highlights the role of the the binary relation of adiabatic accessibility between equilibrium states. A feature of Carathédory's system is that the version therein of the second law contains an amb... read more

Clocks and time in quantum theory
Speaker(s): Harvey Brown
Abstract: I will examine a number of time-related issues arising in quantum theory, and in particular attempt to address the following basic questions from a quantum perspective: 1. What is a clock? 2. Why do uniformly moving clocks dilate? 3. What is the behaviour of accelerating clocks?

Time and Motion
Speaker(s): Harvey Brown
Abstract: Newton's first law of motion - and the very meaning of inertia - has been described as either completely obvious (D'Alembert) or a 'logician's nightmare' (ex-editor of the American Journal of Physics). Sometimes the simplest things in physics are the most subtle. The first law will be described in h... read more

Why is general relativity a geometric theory?
Speaker(s): Harvey Brown
Abstract: Bimetric theories of gravitation, whether empirically correct or not, are a reminder that a dynamical metric field need not have chrono-geometric significance: its null geodesics need not characterize the motion of light, nor need it be surveyed by physical rods and clocks. In standard GR, the chron... read more
