Composite quantum particles as ideal quantum clocks — operational approach to quantum aspects of time

Magdalena Zych University of Queensland (UQ)
In general relativity time requires an operational description, for example, associated with the reading of an idealised clock following some world line. I will show that in quantum physics idealised clocks can be modelled as composite quantum particles and discuss what foundational insights into the notion of time is enabled by this approach.
