Time and Causation

Orfeu Bertolami, Francisco S.N. Lobo

Abstract


In this review paper, we consider the fundamental nature of time and causality, most particularly, in the context of the theories of special and general relativity. We also discuss the issue of closed timelike curves in the context of general relativity, and the associated paradoxes, the question of directionality of the time flow and, rather briefly, the problem of time in quantum gravity.

Keywords
