Is there an observer-independent time-reversal in physics? Only for Hamiltonian dynamics, we argue. Otherwise there’s only retrodiction, which of course depends on the retrodictor’s (prior) believes. The paper (co-authored with Clive C. Aw and Valerio Scarani) is freely available from AVS Quantum Science website, where it is highlighted as a Featured Article. Below is a talk I recently gave on these ideas.
