The law of large numbers for quantum stochastic filtering and control of many particle systems

There is an extensive literature on the dynamic law of large numbers for systems of quantum particles, that is, on the derivation of an equation describing the limiting individual behavior of particles inside a large ensemble of identical interacting particles. The resulting equations are generally referred to as nonlinear Scr¨odinger equations or Hartree equations, or Gross-Pitaevski equations. In this paper we extend some of these convergence results to a stochastic framework. Concretely we work with the Belavkin stochastic filtering of many particle quantum systems. The resulting limiting equation is an equation of a new type, which can be seen as a complex-valued infinite dimensional nonlinear diffusion of McKean-Vlasov type. This result is the key ingredient for the theory of quantum mean-field games developed by the author in a previous paper.
