The talk reports on recent joint work with Tryphon Georgiou on the central role that the time asymmetry of stability plays in feedback control. It is shown that this provides a new perspective on the use of doubly-infinite or semi-infinite time axes for signal spaces in control theory. The talk goes on to explain the implications of this time asymmetry in modeling uncertainty, regulation and robust control. We point out that modeling uncertainty and the ease of control depend critically on the direction of time. We also discuss the relationship of this control-based time-arrow with the well known arrows of time in physics.
