The notion of a quantum dynamical semigroup is defined using the concept of a completely positive map. An explicit form of a bounded generator of such a semigroup on B(H) is derived. This is a quantum analogue of the LevyKhinchin formula. As a result the general form of a large class of Mar kovian quantummechanical master equations is obtained.
