Why is Time a One-Way Street?
Anyone can see that the past is different from the future. Anyone, that is, but theoretical physicists, whose equations do not seem to distinguish the past from the future. How, then, do physicists understand the "arrow of time" — the fact that the past and future are so different? Leonard Susskind will discuss the paradox of time's arrow and how physicists and cosmologists view it today.
Leonard Susskind is Felix Bloch Professor of Theoretical Physics at Stanford University and Director of the Stanford Institute for Theoretical Physics
