The non-commutative generalisation of the notion of stopping time was introduced by Hudson. Such quantum stopping times may be used to stop the CCR flow and its isometric cocycles, i.e., left operator Markovian cocycles on Boson Fock space. This stopping of the CCR flow yields a homomorphism from the semigroup of stopping times into the semigroup of unital endomorphisms of the algebra of bounded operators on the ambient Fock space, and this homomorphism is a generalised version of the shift semigroup. Moreover, stopped cocycles satisfy a non-deterministic version of the cocycle relation, which is a significant generalisation of a result of Applebaum. (Joint work with K. B. Sinha)
