Time's arrow from the multiverse point of view

In this paper, I suggest a possible explanation for the asymmetry of time. In the case that I study, the dynamical laws and the boundary conditions are symmetric, but the behavior of time is not. The underlying mechanism is statistical and closely related to the idea of multiple histories in quantum mechanics, but otherwise rather independent of the particular framework.

Je considère une possibilité d'explication pour l'asymétrie temporelle. Dans le cas que j'étudie, la dynamique et les conditions aux limites sont symétriques, mais pas le comportement de la variable temporelle. Le mécanisme sous-jacent est statistique et est étroitement relié à l'idée d'histoires multiples en mécanique quantique, tout en restant assez indépendant du cadre particulier.
