Title: Symmetries of Time

 

Abstract: Time displays two fundamental symmetries: time reversal, T, and time translation, Τ (Tau).  They inspire fruitful questions: Why is T very accurate, but not quite exact?  Can Τ (Tau)  be broken spontaneously?   Those questions lead into axions and time crystals, respectively, two subjects currently at the forefront of research in physics.
