On the Arrow of Time

The arrow of time is one of the most difficult questions in modern physics. In this paper, a damping vibration equation is discussed, which shows that this equation reflects the arrow of time. We have further discussed that the concept of “the arrow of time” in this equation is quite different from the thermodynamic arrow.
