Unruh effect without spacetime

I show that Unruh effect can be associated with the partitioning of the real line, andĀ derived from the basic representation theory of the group of affine transformations in oneĀ dimension. This result shows that thermal distributions naturally emerge in connecting quantum
states belonging to representations related to distinct notions of translational symmetry.
