We study non-Hermitian quantum mechanics in the presence of a minimal length. In particular we obtain exact solutions of a non-Hermitian displaced harmonic oscillator and the Swanson model with minimal length uncertainty. The spectrum in both the cases are found to be real. It is also shown that the models are pseudo-Hermitian and the metric operator is found explicitly in both the cases.

We demonstrate that the recent paper by Jana and Roy entitled 'Non-Hermitian quantum mechanics with minimal length uncertainty'[SIGMA 5 (2009), 083, 7 pages, arXiv:0908.1755] contains various

Problem of the coexistence of several non-Hermitian observables in PT -symmetric quantum mechanics

During the recent developments of quantum theory it has been clarified that the observable quantities (like energy or position) may be represented by operators (with real spectra) which are

Minimal and maximal lengths of quantum gravity from non-Hermitian position-dependent noncommutativity

A minimum length scale of the order of Planck length is a feature of many models of quantum gravity that seek to unify quantum mechanics and gravitation. Recently, Perivolaropoulos in his seminal

We investigate four different types of representations of deformed canonical variables leading to generalized versions of Heisenberg’s uncertainty relations resulting from noncommutative spacetime

We introduce a new set of noncommutative spacetime commutation relations in two space dimensions. The space–space commutation relations are deformations of the standard flat noncommutative spacetime

Intuitive arguments involving standard quantum mechanical uncertainty relations suggest that at length scales close to the Planck length, strong gravity effects limit the spatial as well as temporal

It is shown that the results of ref [1] are consistent. In ref [1] Swanson model with the following Hamiltonian was considered H = ωaa + λa + δa 2 + ω 2 (1) where λ 6= δ are real numbers and a, a are

In quantum mechanics with minimal length uncertainty relations the Heisenberg-Weyl algebra of the one-dimensional harmonic oscillator is a deformed SU(1,1) algebra. The eigenvalues and eigenstates

Hilbert space representation of the minimal length uncertainty relation.

The quantum mechanical structure which underlies the generalized uncertainty relation which quantum theoretically describes the minimal length as a minimal uncertainty in position measurements is studied.

Quantum mechanics usually describes particles as being pointlike in the sense that, in principle, the uncertainty, , can be made arbitrarily small. Studies on string theory and quantum gravity
