**Time in Quantum Mechanics**

by Curt A. Moyer

**Publisher**: arXiv 2013**Number of pages**: 39

**Description**:

The failure of conventional quantum theory to recognize time as an observable and to admit time operators is addressed. Instead of focusing on the existence of a time operator for a given Hamiltonian, we emphasize the role of the Hamiltonian as the generator of translations in time to construct time states.
