Abstract: A subject of interest in classical and quantum mechanics is the development of the appropriate treatment of the time variable. In this paper we introduce a method of choosing the initial time eigensurface and how this method can be used to generate time-energy coordinates and, consequently, time-energy representations for classical and quantum systems.
Keywords: energy-time coordinates; energy-time eigenfunctions; time in classical systems; time in quantum systems; commutators in classical systems; commutators
