The treatment of time in quantum mechanics is still an important and challenging open question in the foundation of the quantum theory.

This multi-authored book, written as an introductory guide for newcomers to the subject, as well as a useful source of information for the expert, covers many of the open questions. The book describes the problems, and the attempts and achievements in defining, formalizing and measuring different time quantities in quantum theory.
