Author’s Abstract

  1. General relativity allows solutions exhibiting closed timelike curves.
  2. Time travel1 generates paradoxes and quantum mechanics2 generalizations were proposed to solve those paradoxes.
  3. The implications of self-consistent interactions on acausal region of space-time are investigated.
  4. If the correspondence principle is true, then all generalizations of quantum mechanics3 on acausal manifolds are not renormalizable.
  5. Therefore quantum mechanics4 can only be defined on global hyperbolic manifolds and all general relativity solutions exhibiting time travel5 are unphysical.
