Abstract. We classify all continuous tensor product systems of Hilbert spaces which
are "infinitely divisible" in the sense that they have an associated logarithmic struc-
ture. These results are applied to the theory of E0-semigroups to deduce that every
E0-semigroup possessing sufficiently many "decomposable" operators must be cocy-
cle conjugate to a CCR flow.
A path space is an abstraction of the set of paths in a topological space, on which
there is given an associative rule of concatenation. A metric path space is a pair
(P, g) consisting of a path space P and a function g : P2 C which behaves as if
it were the logarithm of a multiplicative inner product. The logarithmic structures
associated with infinitely divisible product systems are such objects. The preceding
results are based on a classification of metric path spaces.
