Bound states generated by the K coupled -symmetric square wells are studied in a series of models where the Hamiltonians are assumed -pseudo-Hermitian and -symmetric. Specific rotation-like generalized parities are considered such that at some integers N. We show how our assumptions make the models exactly solvable and quasi-Hermitian. This means that they possess the real spectra as well as the standard probabilistic interpretation. 
Construction of a unique metric in quasi-Hermitian quantum mechanics: Nonexistence of the charge operator in a 2×2 matrix model
Abstract For a specific exactly solvable 2 × 2 matrix model with a PT -symmetric Hamiltonian possessing a real spectrum, we construct all the eligible physical metrics Θ > 0 and show that none ofExpand
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 andExpand

The question of possible physics before Big Bang (or after Big Crunch) is addressed via a schematic non-covariant simulation of the loss of observability of the Universe. Our model is drasticallyExpand

Solvable simulation of a double-well problem in -symmetric quantum mechanics
Within the framework of -symmetric quantum mechanics of bound states (which works with parity-pseudo-Hermitian Hamiltonians H = H† and real spectra) we mimic some effects of the double-well structureExpand
Coupled-channel version of the PT-symmetric square well
A coupled pair of PT-symmetric square wells is studied as a prototype of a quantum system characterized by two manifestly non-Hermitian commuting observables. Via the diagonalization of ourExpand
Solvability and PT-symmetry in a double-well model with point interactions
The concept of point interactions offers one of the most suitable guides towards a quantitative analysis of properties of certain specific non-Hermitian (so-called -symmetric) quantum-mechanicalExpand
Fragile PT-symmetry in a solvable model
One of the simplest pseudo-Hermitian models with real spectrum (viz., square-well on a real interval I of coordinates) is re-examined. A PT-symmetric complex deformation C of I is introduced andExpand
Real Spectra in Non-Hermitian Hamiltonians Having PT Symmetry
The condition of self-adjointness ensures that the eigenvalues of a Hamiltonian are real and bounded below. Replacing this condition by the weaker condition of $\mathrm{PT}$ symmetry, one obtains newExpand
Physical aspects of pseudo-Hermitian and PT-symmetric quantum mechanics
For a non-Hermitian Hamiltonian H possessing a real spectrum, we introduce a canonical orthonormal basis in which a previously introduced unitary mapping of H to a Hermitian Hamiltonian h takes aExpand

Complex extension of quantum mechanics.
If PT symmetry is not spontaneously broken, it is possible to construct a previously unnoticed symmetry C of the Hamiltonian, and this work is not in conflict with conventional quantum mechanics but is rather a complex generalization of it. Expand
Quasi-Hermitian operators in quantum mechanics and the variational principle
We establish a general criterion for a set of non-Hermitian operators to constitute a consistent quantum mechanical system, which allows for the normal quantum-mechanical interpretation. ThisExpand

We extend the standard intertwining relations used in supersymmetrical (SUSY) quantum mechanics which involve real superpotentials to complex superpotentials. This allows us to deal with a largeExpand
