Displaced Harmonic Oscillator V ∼ min [(x + d)2, (x − d)2] as a Benchmark Double-Well Quantum Model

For the displaced harmonic double-well oscillator, the existence of exact polynomial bound states at certain displacements d is revealed. The N-plets of these quasi-exactly solvable (QES) states are

Interference of non-Hermiticity with Hermiticity at exceptional points

A “solvable”, i.e., partially non-numerically tractable family of quantum N by N matrix Hamiltonians mixing Hermiticity with non-Hermiticity is constructed and studied at any even N = 2 J . These



Bions and Instantons in Triple-Well and Multi-Well Potentials

Quantum systems with multiple degenerate classical harmonic minima exhibit new non-perturbative phenomena which are not present for the double-well and periodic potentials. The simplest

Multiply Degenerate Exceptional Points and Quantum Phase Transitions

The realization of a genuine phase transition in quantum mechanics requires that at least one of the Kato’s exceptional-point parameters becomes real. A new family of finite-dimensional and


The topological analysis of the electron localization function (ELF) provides a convenient theoretical framework to characterize chemical bonds. This method does not rely on the particular

Semiclassical analysis of low lying eigenvalues, II. Tunneling*

We discuss the leading asymptotics of eigenvalue splittings of - 2 + X2V in the limit as X -- o, and where V is a non-negative potential with several zeros. For example, if EO(X), E1(X) are the two

Mathematical and physical meaning of the crossings of energy levels in PT −symmetric systems

Unavoided crossings of the energy levels due to a variation of a real parameter are studied. It is found that after the quantum system in question passes through one of its energy-crossing points
