# Piecewise deterministic quantum dynamics and quantum fractals on the Poincaré disk

@article{Jadczyk2004PiecewiseDQ, title={Piecewise deterministic quantum dynamics and quantum fractals on the Poincar{\'e} disk}, author={A. Jadczyk}, journal={Reports on Mathematical Physics}, year={2004}, volume={54}, pages={81-92} }

Abstract It is shown that piecewise deterministic dissipative quantum dynamics in a vector space withindefinite metric can lead to well defined, positive probabilities. The case of quantum jumps on the Poincar'e disk is studied in detail including results of numerical simulations of quantum fractals.
