Time and Physics — a Noncommutative Revolution
Basic ideas of noncommutative geometry are briefly presented. This mathematical theory, being global from the very beginning, can be used to model physics in which local concepts, such as those of time instant and space point, are meaningless. In spite of the lack of the standard time concept a “noncommutative dynamics” can be defined. Noncommutative generalizations of causality, probability and chance are discussed.
