# Infinite Barriers and Symmetries for a Few Trapped Particles in One Dimension

@article{Harshman2016InfiniteBA, title={Infinite Barriers and Symmetries for a Few Trapped Particles in One Dimension}, author={Nathan L. Harshman}, journal={Physical Review A}, year={2016}, volume={95} }

This article investigates the properties of a few interacting particles trapped in a few wells and how these properties change under adiabatic tuning of interaction strength and inter-well tunneling. While some system properties are dependent on the specific shapes of the traps and the interactions, this article applies symmetry analysis to identify generic features in the spectrum of stationary states of few-particle, few-well systems. Extended attention is given to a simple but flexible three…
