Abstract

We present a discussion of our microstatistical formalism for multitime quantum measurements. We show that this formalism is capable of dealing with time in quantum mechanics in a rigorous way, and enables one to precisely state and derive time-energy uncertainty relations. Another application to the problem of the quantum limit of accuracy of position measurements in the context of gravitational wave detection is briefly discussed.
