In this thesis we develop the theory of quantum Wiener integrals on the bosonic Fock space. We study multiple quantum Wiener integrals as an algebra of unbounded operators, investigating its properties, including closedness, common domains and multiplication formulas. We show the applications of the new formalism by providing new proofs to the established theory of quantum stochastic calculus and new conditions for generating quantum stochastic cocycles and quantum stochastic evolutions. The corresponding quasifree case is also studied and the constructions extended to fit in that formalism. We construct the multiple quantum Wiener integral as one operator on a family of operators which we dub operator kernels. This in particular covers the case of quantum stochastic cocycles and evolutions. We show that the family of quantum Wiener integrals forms a WOT-dense algebra of unbounded operators on the bosonic Fock space. We provide more general conditions for an operator kernel to be multiple quantum Wiener integrable, which allows us to treat multiple quantum Wiener integrals as an algebra. We explore the influence of an initial space on the theory. Our setting gives natural conditions for a product of two cocycles (evolutions) to still be a cocycle (an evolution). We apply our theory by solving quantum stochastic differential equations (QSDEs) and by finding more elementary proofs of structure conditions on the generator of a quantum stochastic evolution and of the fundamental estimate in the proof of quantum stochastic Lie–Trotter formula. We also show how our theory unifies and generalises the theory of integral kernels and chaotic representation properties, proving in particular that every Hilbert–Schmidt operator is a quantum Wiener integral.
