Abstract

Time does not feature in the equations describing the world of elementary particles and in some border astrophysical conditions. There, there is time symmetry.

The world of the macro, on the other hand, is time asymmetric.

Time is, therefore, an epiphenomenon: it does not characterize the parts though it emerges as a main property of the whole, as an extensive parameter of macro systems.

This Doctoral dissertation (Ph.D. Thesis available on Microfiche in UMI) postulates the existence of a particle (Chronon). Time is the result of the interaction of Chronons, very much as other forces in nature are "transferred" in such interactions.
