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.

Quantum Fractals. Geometric Modeling of Quantum Jumps with Conformal Maps
Abstract.Positive matrices in $$SL(2, {\mathbb{C}})$$ have a double physical interpretation; they can be either considered as “fuzzy projections” of a spin 1/2 quantum system, or as Lorentz boosts.Expand


Interacting Quantum and Classical Continuous Systems I. The Piecewise Deterministic Dynamics
A mathematical construction of a Markov–Feller process associated with a completely positive coupling between classical and quantum systems is proposed. The example of the free classical particle onExpand

A Quantum Iterated Function System on a complex projective space is defined through a family of linear operators on a complex Hilbert space. The operators define both the maps and their probabilitiesExpand
Invitation to quantum dynamical semigroups
The theory of quantum dynamical semigroups within the mathematically rigorous framework of completely positive dynamical maps is reviewed. First, the axiomatic approach which deals withExpand

We prove that, in constrast to the theories of continuous observation, in the formalism of event enhanced quantum theory the stochastic process generating sample histories of pairs (observed quantumExpand
Quantum iterated function systems.
This work presents exemplary classical IFSs, the invariant measure of which exhibits fractal structure, and study properties of the corresponding QIFSs and their invariant states, to describe certain problems of nonunitary quantum dynamics. Expand
Quantum Dynamical Semigroups and Applications
In this text the authors develop quantum dynamics of open systems for a wide class of irreversible processes starting from the concept of completely positive semigroups. This unified approach makesExpand
Event enhanced quantum theory and piecewise deterministic dynamics
The standard formalism of quantum theory is enhanced and definite meaning is given to the concepts of experiment, measurement and event. Within this approach one obtains a uniquely defined piecewiseExpand
Time of Events in Quantum Theory
We enhance elementary quantum mechanics with three simple postulates that enable us to define time observable. We discuss shortly justification of the new postulates and illustrate the concept withExpand

A pathology related to an indefinite metric, which has been pointed out by Ito in connection with construction of a two dimensional quantum field model at a finite cutoff, is mathematically analyzedExpand
Classical interventions in quantum systems. II. Relativistic invariance
If several interventions performed on a quantum system are localized in mutually spacelike regions, they will be recorded as a sequence of ``quantum jumps'' in one Lorentz frame, and as a differentExpand
