 Time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 Time (magazine) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As a result of this radio program, "Time" magazine was brought "to the attention of millions previously unaware of its existence," according to "Time Inc.: The Intimate History Of A Publishing Enterprise 1923-1941", and this led to an increased circulation of the magazine during the 1930s.
TIME was co-founded in 1923 by Briton Hadden and Henry Luce, making it the first weekly news magazine in the United States.
Time is also known for its signature red border, which only changed once in the magazine's 80-year history– the issue released shortly after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States, which featured a black border to show mourning.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Time
As the parts of time, he says, are to each other in the relation of cause to effect, and as the cause is essentially antecedent to its effect, it is impossible to reverse this relation.
Of this quantitative increment time is the representation.
Secondly, time is the measure of events in this world.

 Time [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
This beginning process is called the "Big Bang." As far as we knew back in the 20th century, the entire universe was created in the Big Bang, and time itself came into existence "at that time".
The disappearance of time's arrow in the movie of the microscopic process, does not show that time itself fades away as you look at briefer and smaller processes; this is because there are still events happening, and so time does exist there.
Spacetime is four-dimensional and a continuum, with time being a distinguished, one-dimensional sub-space of this continuum.

 6.11 time -- Time access and conversions
The precision, and in fact the very definition of the meaning of ``processor time'', depends on that of the C function of the same name, but in any case, this is the function to use for benchmarking Python or timing algorithms.

 Time
On this view, there is no sense in which it is true to say that time really passes, and any appearance to the contrary is merely a result of the way we humans happen to perceive the world.
But this objection fails, according to McTaggart, because the additional times that are invoked in order to explain t's possession of the incompatible A properties must themselves possess all of the same A properties (as must any further times invoked on account of these additional times, and so on ad infinitum).
The question of whether there could be time without change has been debated by philosophers since the days of Plato and Aristotle, and has traditionally been thought to be closely tied to the question of whether time exists independently of the events that occur in time.

 Time Travel and Modern Physics
It is perfectly possible that the physical laws obey this condition, but still that time travel is not metaphysically possible because of the nature of time itself.
It is ironic that time travel should lead generically not to contradictions or to constraints (in the normal region) but to underdetermination of what happens in the time travel region by what happens everywhere else (an underdetermination tied neither to a probabilistic dynamics or to a free edge to space-time).
Now we can ask a particularly clear question: consider a manifold which contains a time travel region, but also has a partial Cauchy surface S, such that all of the temporal funny business is to the future of S.

 Z-Time - by Harold F. Maybeck
This notation, "Z", is appended to times on most navigational, meteorological, and astronomical charts today to indicate that the time of the chart is in "Greenwich Mean Time".
The "original" expression "In jig time" was a sailors expression, meaning "in no time at all", because there is no "JIG" time zone.
It must be remembered that this was before the times of Eastern Standard Time, Pacific Standard Time, or even notations like "Daylight Savings Time".

 [sci.astro] Time (Astronomy Frequently Asked Questions) (3/9)
Author: Steve Willner This phenomenon is called the "equation of time." This is just a fancy name for the fact that the Sun's speed along the Earth's equator is not constant.
When Orion is at its maximum altitude, it is between 5h and 6h Sidereal Time; when the Big Dipper can be seen close to the zenith it is about 12h Sidereal Time; and when Sagittarius, with all its glories close to the center of our Galaxy, reaches maximum altitude it is around 18h Sidereal Time.
The 24h notation is the official international standard time notation (ISO 8601) and displayed by almost all digital clocks outside the U.S.A. The 24h notation is also recommended by the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington, which defines official time in the U.S.) MEAN SOLAR TIME: True Solar Time isn't a uniform time.

This is because World Clock relies entirely on your computer's clock and time zone settings for its display.

 Terrestrial Time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Time coordinates on the TT and TCG scales are conventionally specified using traditional means of specifying days, carried over from non-uniform time standards based on the rotation of the Earth.
In astronomy it is used as the time coordinate for apparent ephemerides for an Earthbound viewer.
TT is a Platonic time scale: a theoretical ideal, not dependent on a particular realisation.

 Polynomial time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mathematicians sometimes use the notion of "polynomial time on the length of the input" as a definition of a "fast" computation, as opposed to "super-polynomial time", which is anything slower than that.
In computational complexity theory, polynomial time refers to the computation time of a problem where the time, m(n), is no greater than a polynomial function of the problem size, n.
Exponential time is one example of a super-polynomial time.

 Time zone - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This hodgepodge ended when Standard zone time was formally adopted by the U.S. Congress in 1918.
A time zone is a region of the Earth that has adopted the same standard time, usually referred to as the local time.
Time zones are thus a compromise, relaxing the complex geographic dependence while still allowing local time to approximate the mean solar time.

 Unix time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Instead, times with sub-second precision are represented using compound data types that consist of two integers, the first being a time_t (the integral part of the Unix time), and the second being the fractional part of the time number in millionths (in struct timeval) or billionths (in struct timespec).
It is an encoding of UTC, and is sufficiently similar to a linear representation of the passage of time that it is frequently mistaken for one.
As a result, Unix times such as 915 148 799.50, apparently in the second preceding a leap second, are de facto ambiguous, as are (both de facto and de jure) times such as 915 148 800.50.
