In this work, we introduce a new realization of exactly-solvable time-dependent Hamiltonians based on the solutions of the fourth Painleve and the Ermakov equations. The latter is achieved by introducing a shape-invariant condition between an unknown quantum invariant and a set of third-order intertwining operators with time-dependent coefficients. The new quantum invariant is constructed by adding a deformation term to the well-known parametric oscillator invariant. Such a deformation depends…

Third-order ladder operators, generalized Okamoto and exceptional orthogonal polynomials
We extend and generalize the construction of Sturm–Liouville problems for a family of Hamiltonians constrained to fulfill a third-order shape-invariance condition and focusing on the ‘−2x/3’
