# Quantum stochastic approach to the description of quantum measurements

@article{Loubenets2001QuantumSA, title={Quantum stochastic approach to the description of quantum measurements}, author={Elena R. Loubenets}, journal={Journal of Physics A}, year={2001}, volume={34}, pages={7639-7675} }

In the present paper we consider the problem of the description of an arbitrary generalized quantum measurement with outcomes in a measurable space. Analysing the unitary invariants of a separable statistical realization of a quantum instrument, we present the most general form of a possible integral representation of an instrument. We introduce the notion of a stochastic realization of an instrument and establish a one-to-one correspondence between the class of unitarily and phase equivalent… Expand
