Abstract

A new quantum-stochastic differential calculus is derived for representing a continuous quantum measurement of the position operator. A closed nonlinear quantum-stochastic differential equation is given for the quantum state of the observed particle. A possible physical realization of a continuous position measurement is constructed.
