Conditional Expectation and Stochastic Processes in Quantum Probability

  • Werner Stulpe
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 294)


Proceeding in close analogy to classical probability theory/ quantum concepts of conditional expectations/ conditional distributions, stochastic processes, and a Markov property of these are introduced by means of instruments. Examples concerning successive measurements and the random walk of a particle are discussed.
