Abstract. We show that semigroups of endomorphisms of B(H) can often be asso-
ciated with a dynamical principle; that is, an infinitesimal structure that completely
determines the dynamics. These dynamical invariants are similar to the second order
differential equations of classical mechanics, in that one can locate a space of mo-
mentum operators, a "Riemannian metric", and a potential. In the simplest cases
these structures occur in n n matrix algebras, and can be classified in terms of
noncommutative geometric invariants. As a consequence, we obtain new information
relating to the classification of E0-semigroups acting on type I factors.
