Abstract
We consider normal Markovian cocycles on a von Neumann algebra which are adapted to a Fock filtration. Every such cocycle k which is Markovregular and consists of completely positive contractions is realised as a conditioned ^{∗}homomorphic cocycle. This amounts to a stochastic generalisation of a recent dilation result for normcontinuous normal completely positive contraction semigroups. To achieve this stochastic dilation we use the fact that k is governed by a quantum stochastic differential equation whose coefficient matrix has a specific structure, and extend a technique for obtaining stochastic flow generators from Markov semigroup generators, to the context of cocycles. Number/exchangefree dilatability is seen to be related to locality in the case where the cocycle is a Markovian semigroup. In the same spirit unitary dilations of Markovregular contraction cocycles on a Hilbert space are also described. The paper ends with a discussion of connections with measure valued diffusion.
