      As you search for the symmetries in “Asymmetry,” you won’t find one key that will unlock all its mysteries — this book is musical, not architectural in structure; themes don’t build on.

Physical origins of time asymmetry. [J J Halliwell; J Pérez-Mercader; Wojciech Hubert Zurek;] -- In the world about us, the past is distinctly different from the future.

The Origins of Time-Asymmetry in Thermodynamics: The Minus First Law Harvey R Brown *and Jos Uffink ^ This paper investigates what the source of time-asymmetry is in thermodynamics, and comments on the question whether a time-symmetric formulation of the Second Law is possible.

The arrow of time, also called time's arrow, is the concept positing the "one-way direction" or "asymmetry" of was developed in by the British astrophysicist Arthur Eddington, and is an unsolved general physics direction, according to Eddington, could be determined by studying the organization of atoms, molecules, and bodies, and might be drawn.

Physical Origins of Time Asym­metry J.J. Halliwell, J. Pérez-Mercader, and W. Zurek Cambridge University Press,pages Time asymmetry is a little easier to examine than time itself, because a fundamental axiom of statistical thermodynamics is that entropy must increase over time in a closed system.

More precisely, we say that the processes going on in the world about us are asymmetric in time, or display an arrow of time.

Yet this manifest fact of our experience is particularly difficult to explain in terms of the fundamental laws of physics. Newton's laws, quantum mechanics, electro-magnetism. Time orientability and existence of a cosmic time are necessary conditions for de ning an arrow of time, which is manifested globally as the time-asymmetry of the universe as a whole, and locally as a time-asymmetric energy flux.
