Abstract: W. Arveson showed a way of associating continuous tensor product systems of Hilbert spaces with endomorphism semigroups of type I factors. We do the same for general quantum dynamical semigroups through a dilation procedure. The product system so obtained is the index and its dimension is a numerical invariant for the original semigroup.
