Quantum exceptional points of non-Hermitian Hamiltonians and Liouvillians: The effects of quantum jumps
Exceptional points (EPs) correspond to degeneracies of open systems. These are attracting much interest in optics, optoelectronics, plasmonics, and condensed matter physics. In the classical andExpand
Resolution of gauge ambiguities in ultrastrong-coupling cavity quantum electrodynamics
In quantum electrodynamics, the choice of gauge influences the form of light–matter interactions. However, gauge invariance implies that all physical results should be independent of this formalExpand
Biorthogonal quantum mechanics
The Hermiticity condition in quantum mechanics required for the characterization of (a) physical observables and (b) generators of unitary motions can be relaxed into a wider class of operators whoseExpand
Non-Hermitian Hamiltonians and no-go theorems in quantum information
Recently, apparent nonphysical implications of non-Hermitian quantum mechanics (NHQM) have been discussed in the literature. In particular, the apparent violation of the no-signaling theorem,Expand
Gauge principle and gauge invariance in two-level systems
The quantum Rabi model is a widespread description for the coupling between a two-level system and a quantized single mode of an electromagnetic resonator. Issues about this model's gauge invarianceExpand
Gauge freedom, quantum measurements, and time-dependent interactions in cavity QED
The interaction between the electromagnetic field inside a cavity and natural or artificial atoms has played a crucial role in developing our understanding of light-matter interaction, and is centralExpand
Time-dependent Hilbert spaces, geometric phases, and general covariance in quantum mechanics
Abstract We investigate consequences of allowing the Hilbert space of a quantum system to have a time-dependent metric. For a given possibly nonstationary quantum system, we show that the requirementExpand
Parity–time symmetry and exceptional points in photonics
The role of PT symmetry and non-Hermitian dynamics for synthesizing and controlling the flow of light in optical structures is highlighted and a roadmap for future studies and potential applications is provided. Expand
Making sense of non-Hermitian Hamiltonians
The Hamiltonian H specifies the energy levels and time evolution of a quantum theory. A standard axiom of quantum mechanics requires that H be Hermitian because Hermiticity guarantees that the energyExpand
F-theory from Fundamental Five-branes
We describe the worldvolume for the bosonic sector of the lower-dimensional F-theory that embeds 4D, N=1 M-theory and the 3D Type II superstring. The worldvolume (5-brane) theory is that of a singleExpand
