Abstract. We construct a new class of semigroups of completely positive maps
on B(H) which can be decomposed into an infinite tensor product of such semi-
groups. Under suitable hypotheses, the minimal dilations of these semigroups to
E0-semigroups are pure, and have no normal invariant states. Concrete examples
are discussed in some detail.
Dedicated to Robert T. Powers on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday
1. Introduction.
An E0-semigroup is a semigroup of normal unital -endomorphisms = {t :
t 0} acting on the algebra B(H) of all bounded operators on a separable Hilbert
