Particular attention is given to the problem of the irreversibility of macroscopic and biologic processes in time.Vladislav S. OlkhovskyV. A.

Then the analogy between particle and photon tunnelling and properties of time as an observable in quantum electrodynamics are examined. At last a short analysis of the microwave and optical experiments on tunnelling times is presented.Vladislav S.

Rpeorts 214 (1992) 339] we proposed, within conventional quantum mechanics, new definitions fot the subarrier tunnelling and reflection times. Aims of the present paper are: (i) presenting and analysing the results of various numerical calculations (based on our equations) on the penetration and return times $\left \langle tau_P_e_n \right \rangle $ , $\left \langle tau_R_e_t\right \rangle $ during tunnelling inside a rectangular potential barrier, for various penetration depths $x_f$ ; (ii) putting forth and discussing suitable definitions. Besides of the mean values, also of the variances (or dispersions)$D\tau_T\ $ and $ D\tau_R\ $ for the tima durations of trasmission and reflection processes; (iii) mentioning that our definition $\left \langle tau_T \right \rangle $ for the average transmission time results to constituite an improvemente of the ordinary dwell-time $ \bar tau^D^W\ $ formula: (iv) commenting upon some recent criticism by C.R. Leavens, on the basis of our new numerical results. We stress that our numerical evaluations confirm that our approach implied, and implies, the existence of the Hartman effect: an effect that in these days (due to the theoretical connections between tunnelling and evanescent-wave propagation) is receiving - at Cologne, Berkeley, Florence and Wien - indirect, but quite interesting, experimental verifications. At last we briefly analyze some other definitions of tunnelling times.Vladislav S. OlkhovskyErasmo RecamiAleksandr K.

As a result, the corrected "nuclear clocks" will indicate to smaller values of the durations of real decay processesVladislav S.

A special attention is devoted to the duality of energy and time operators and also to the verification of time-energy uncertainty relations for continuous and discrete energy spectra.Vladislav S.

On the base of analysis of this penetration we develop a model of sub-barrier two-particle tranfer and emission enhancement in nuclear collisions which is an alternative to the Josephson nuclear effect model. Some evaluations of the penetration and return time for the tunnelling motion, referring to two-nucleon transfer and emission enhancement in heavy-ion sub-barrier collisions are presented.Giovanni FazioG.
