Quantum state diffusion / Ian Percival.

This is the first book devoted to quantum state diffusion (QSD) and its applications to open quantum systems and to the foundations of quantum mechanics. Recent experiments with detailed control over individual quantum systems have changed the face of quantum physics. These systems include atoms at...
