Time's arrow from the multiverse point of view
In this paper, I suggest a possible explanation for the asymmetry of time. In the case that I study, the dynamical laws and the boundary conditions are symmetric, but the behavior of time is not. The underlying mechanism is statistical and closely related to the idea of multiple histories in quantum mechanics, but otherwise rather independent of the particular framework.
