For a class of Hamiltonians including a model of the quantum detector of gravitational waves, we prove the strong convergence of the Schrödinger evolution to quantum stochastics. We show that the strong resolvent limit of a sequence of self-adjoint Hamiltonians is a symmetric boundary-value problem in Fock space, and the limit evolution of the partial trace with respect to the mixed state cannot be described by a unique equation of Lindblad type. On the contrary, each component of the mixed state generates a proper evolution law.
