Quantum Markov Processes Driven by Bose Noise

  • Hans Maassen
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 144)


A brief introduction is given to Markov dilations, i.e. quantum Markov processes as constructed from their transition probability semigroups. The dilation is constructed of the two-level atom, decaying to its ground state, under the assumption of cononical commutation relations for the outside world.
