Abstract: This paper gives an affirmative solution, in a large number of cases, to the following problem. Let $ \mathcal{R}$ be a von Neumann algebra on the Hilbert space $ \mathcal{H}$, let G be a topological group, and let $ a \to \varphi (a)$ be a homomorphism of G into the group of $ ^ \ast $-automorphisms of $ \mathcal{R}$. Does there exist a strongly continuous unitary representation $ a \to U(a)$ of G on $ \mathcal{H}$ such that each $ U(a)$ induces $ \varphi (a)$?
