Time Reversal and Unitary Symmetries

  • Fritz Haake
Part of the Springer Series in Synergetics book series (SSSYN, volume 54)


A classical Hamiltonian system is called time-reversal invariant if from any given solution x(t), p(t) of Hamilton’s equations an independent solution x′(t′), p′(t′),is obtained with t′ = −t and some operation relating x′ and p′ to the original coordinates x and momenta p.
