It's About Time
PHYS 162
Fall 2006
Section: 01  

Measurement of time has been accomplished by careful observation of stars, sun, and moon, and with devices as varied as the hour glass and the atomic clock. A thorough observation of these and other methods and tools will illuminate old and new views of time. We will investigate concepts including but not limited to the direction of time's arrow, the smoothness of time, time dilation and the relativity of simultaneity.
