Quantum stochastic operator equations are derived for inter-branch exciton and polariton processes caused by acoustic phonon scattering. The use of a fully quantum model combined with these recently developed techniques predicts the presence of ``stimulated scattering'' terms, and provides a sound basis for understanding the basis of the approximations used in generating the equations. The theory is applied to a model motivated by recent experiments where a stronger photoluminescence signal…
