We show that the quantum stochastic Langevin model for continuous in time measurements provides an exact formulation of the von Neumann uncertainty error-disturbance principle. Moreover, as it was shown in the 1980s, this Markov model induces all stochastic linear and nonlinear equations of the phenomenological informational dynamics such as quantum state diffusion and spontaneous localization by a simple quantum filtering method. Here we prove that the quantum Langevin equation is equivalent…

In this paper we shall re-visit the well-known Schrödinger equation of quantum mechanics. However, this shall be realized as a marginal dynamics of a more general, underlying stochastic counting

Here it is shown that the unitary dynamics of a quantum object may be obtained as the expectation of a counting process of object-clock inter- actions. Such a stochastic process arises from the

Quantum Dynamics, Minkowski-Hilbert space, and A Quantum Stochastic Duhamel Principle

A beautiful, but not well understood theory of mathematical physics that understands that both deterministic and stochastic dynamics may be `unraveled' in a second-quantized Minkowski space is presented.

Stochastic Quantization of Time-Dependent Systems by the Haba and Kleinert Method

The stochastic quantization method recently developed by Haba and Kleinert is extended to non-autonomous mechanical systems, in the case of the time-dependent harmonic oscillator. In comparison with



A stochastic Hamiltonian approach for quantum jumps, spontaneous localizations, and continuous trajectories

We give an explicit stochastic Hamiltonian model of discontinuous unitary evolution for quantum spontaneous jumps like in a system of atoms in quantum optics, or in a system of quantum particles that

Quantum causality, stochastics, trajectories and information

A history of the discovery of `new' quantum mechanics and the paradoxes of its probabilistic interpretation are briefly reviewed from the modern point of view of quantum probability and information.

Measurements continuous in time and a posteriori states in quantum mechanics

Measurements continuous in time have been consistently introduced in quantum mechanics and applications worked out, mainly in quantum optics. In this context a quantum filtering theory has been

Quantum continual measurements and a posteriori collapse on CCR

A quantum stochastic model for the Markovian dynamics of an open system under the nondemolition unsharp observation which is continuous in time, is given. A stochastic equation for the posterior

Nondemolition principle of quantum measurement theory

We give an explicit axiomatic formulation of the quantum measurement theory which is free of the projection postulate. It is based on the generalized nondemolition principle applicable also to the

Wave-function quantum stochastic differential equations and quantum-jump simulation methods.

The quantum-stochastic-differential-equation formulation of driven quantum-optical systems is carried out in the interaction picture, and quantum stochastic differential equations for wave functions

A derivation of the linear stochastic wave equation from first principles is presented and its physical content is analyzed to discuss here the coupling to Markovian reservoirs appropriate for homodyne, heterodyn, and photon counting measurements.

Input and output in damped quantum systems: Quantum stochastic differential equations and the master equation.

A formulation of quantum damping theory is developed in which the explicit nature of inputs from a heat bath, and of outputs into it, is taken into account, and the formal relationship between quantum Langevin equations and quantum stochastic differential equations (SDE's) is established.

A new parameter-free unification of micro- and macrodynamics is constructed and gravitational measures for reducing macroscopic quantum fluctuations of the mass density are applied to lead to classical trajectories in the Macroscopic limit of translational motion.
