By Carl Bender and M. Gianfreda

In quantum mechanics the time operator *\Theta* satisfies the commutation relation *[\Theta,H]=i*, and thus it may be thought of as being canonically conjugate to the Hamiltonian *H*. The time operator associated with a given Hamiltonian *H* is not unique because one can replace *\Theta* by *\Theta+ \Theta_{\rm hom}*, where $\Theta_{\rm... Show more
