The law of track formation in cloud chambers is derived from the Liouville equation with a simple Lindblad's type generator that describes coupling between a quantum particle and a classical, continuous, medium of two--state detectors. Piecewise deterministic random process (PDP) corresponding to the Liouville equation is derived. The process consists of pairs (classical event,quantum jump), interspersed with random periods of continuous (in general, non--linear) Schroedinger's--type evolution… 
On Quantum Jumps , Events and Spontaneous Localization Models bulletin board
We propose a precise meaning to the concepts of " experiment " , " measurement " and " event " in the event-enhanced formalism of quantum theory. A minimal piecewise deterministic process is given
On quantum jumps, events, and spontaneous localization models
TLDR
A minimal piecewise deterministic process is given that can be used for a computer simulation of real time series of experiments on single quantum objects.
How events come into being: EEQT, particle tracks, quantum chaos and tunnelling time
Abstract We review Event Enhanced Quantum Theory (EEQT), discuss applications of EEQT to tunnelling time, and compare its quantitative predictions with other approaches, in particular with phase time
Theory of Events
TLDR
The event-enhanced formalism of quantum theory is reviewed, giving, for the first time, a unique algorithm that can be used for computer generation of experimental runs with individual quantum objects.
Composite systems: Entanglement, envariance, events and Born's rule
The discovery of quantum theory caused the greatest revision in our conception of the nature of the physical world since Newton. Quantum theory is one of the most outstanding intellectual
EVENT-ENHANCED FORMALISM OF QUANTUM THEORY OR COLUMBUS SOLUTION TO THE QUANTUM MEASUREMENT PROBLEM
Quantum Mechanics has proved to be tremendously powerful, practical, and successful in the description of the micro-world of elementary particles, atoms and molecules. There seems to be no limit to
Relativistic quantum events
AbstractStandard quantum theory is inadequate to explain the mechanisms by which potential becomes actual. It is inadequate and therefore unable to describe generation of events. Niels Bohr
A Way Out of the Quantum Trap
We review Event Enhanced Quantum Theory (EEQT). In Section 1 we address the question ”Is Quantum Theory the Last Word”. In particular we respond to some of challenging staments of H.P. Stapp. We also

An Attempt at a Unified Description of Microscopic and Macroscopic Systems
When quantum mechanics is applied to a macroscopic particle, most features of the behaviour of such an object are accounted for: mean values of position and momentum evolve according to the classical
ALGEBRAIC THEORY OF SUPERSELECTION SECTORS AND THE MEASUREMENT PROBLEM IN QUANTUM MECHANICS
A synthesis is attempted between the algebraic theory of superselection sectors (not necessarily of infinite systems), which is based on the representation theory of C* algebras (which we review),

The very impetus for the formulation of quantum mechanics in its modern (post-1926) form came from a reconsideration of the measuring process in the quantum context. If there is one feature which

TLDR
An idealized model is presented for a sequence of position measurements and a modification of the model incorporates systematic dissipation via a feedback mechanism; in the modified model there is no decay of off-diagonal coherence in the position basis.
