By modifying and generalizing known supersymmetric models, we are able to find four different sets of one-dimensional Hamiltonians for the inverted harmonic oscillator. The first set of Hamiltonians is derived by extending the supersymmetric quantum mechanics with reflections to non-Hermitian supercharges. The second set is obtained by generalizing the supersymmetric quantum mechanics valid for non-Hermitian supercharges with the Dunkl derivative instead of [Formula: see text]. Also, by… 

Anti-PT-symmetric harmonic oscillator and its relation to the inverted harmonic oscillator

We treat the quantum dynamics of a harmonic oscillator as well as its inverted counter-part in the Schr¨odinger picture. Generally in the most papers of the literature, the inverted harmonic

Inverted oscillator: pseudo hermiticity and coherent states

It is known that the standard and the inverted harmonic oscillator are different. Replacing thus ω by ±iω in the regular oscillator is necessary going to give the inverted oscillator H^{r}. This

Ladder operators in repulsive harmonic oscillator with application to the Schwinger effect

The ladder operators in harmonic oscillator are a well-known strong tool for various problems in physics. In the same sense, it is sometimes expected to handle the problems of repulsive harmonic

We consider theinverted harmonic potential and present infinitely degenerate non-stationary orthogonal states. We discuss that a non-interacting gas under the inverted harmonic potential has an

Generalized Dunkl-Schrodinger equations: solvable cases, point transformations, and position-dependent mass systems

We devise a method for constructing solvable cases of generalized linear Dunkl-Schrödinger equations by means of suitable point transformations. The quantum-mechanical framework pertaining to such



The Dunkl oscillator in the plane: I. Superintegrability, separated wavefunctions and overlap coefficients

The isotropic Dunkl oscillator model in the plane is investigated. The model is defined by a Hamiltonian constructed from the combination of two independent parabosonic oscillators. The system is

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 energy

Pseudo-Hermitian Representation of Quantum Mechanics

A diagonalizable non-Hermitian Hamiltonian having a real spectrum may be used to define a unitary quantum system, if one modifies the inner product of the Hilbert space properly. We give a

Deformed Heisenberg Algebra, Fractional Spin Fields, and Supersymmetry without Fermions

Abstract Within a group-theoretical approach to the description of (2+1)-dimensional anyons, the minimal covariant set of linear differential equations is constructed for the fractional spin fields

Supersymmetric quantum mechanics with reflections

We consider a realization of supersymmetric quantum mechanics where supercharges are differential-difference operators with reflections. A supersymmetric system with an extended Scarf I potential is

Minimal Bosonization of supersymmetry

The minimal bosonization of supersymmetry in terms of one bosonic degree of freedom is considered. A nontrivial relationship of the construction to the Witten supersymmetric quantum mechanics is

Supersymmetry in quantum mechanics

In the past ten years, the ideas of supersymmetry have been profitably applied to many nonrelativistic quantum mechanical problems. In particular, there is now a much deeper understanding of why
