Abstract.

The founding fathers of the quantum theory already struggled with the different roles of space and time in quantum theory. Position is by default represented by an operator, whereas time is usually treated as a parameter. We utilize a model denoted the Temporal Wave Function (T.W.F.) which extends the Born's rule to the time domain. We show how this model links to the kaon phenomenology, including the tiny violation of the combined discrete symmetries P (parity) and C (charge conjugation) observed in the K-meson system. The predictions based on the T.W.F. are compared with the standard predictions and related to precise experimental observations.
