A nonlinear (polynomial, N-fold) SUSY approach to preparation of quantum systems with pre-planned spectral properties is reviewed. The full classification of ladder-reducible and irreducible chains of SUSY algebras in one-dimensional QM is given. Possible extensions of SUSY in one dimension are described. They include (no more than) N = 2 extended SUSY with two nilpotent SUSY charges which generate the hidden symmetry acting as a central charge. Embedding stationary quantum systems into a non… 

Nonlinear supersymmetric quantum mechanics: concepts and realizations

The nonlinear supersymmetric (SUSY) approach to spectral problems in quantum mechanics (QM) is reviewed. Its building from the chains (ladders) of linear SUSY systems is outlined and different

Extended supersymmetry and hidden symmetries in one-dimensional matrix quantum mechanics

We study properties of nonlinear supersymmetry algebras realized in the one-dimensional quantum mechanics of matrix systems. Supercharges of these algebras are differential operators of a finite

Factorization of nonlinear supersymmetry in one-dimensional quantum mechanics. II: Proofs of theorems on reducibility

In this paper, we continue to study factorization of supersymmetric (SUSY) transformations in one-dimensional Quantum Mechanics into chains of elementary Darboux transformations with nonsingular

Hidden Symmetry from Supersymmetry in One-Dimensional Quantum Mechanics

When several inequivalent supercharges form a closed superalgebra in Quantum Mechanics it entails the appearance of hidden symmetries of a Super-Hamiltonian. We exa- mine this problem in

Trends in Supersymmetric Quantum Mechanics

Along the years, supersymmetric quantum mechanics (SUSY QM) has been used for studying solvable quantum potentials. It is the simplest method to build Hamiltonians with prescribed spectra in the

Factorization of nonlinear supersymmetry in one-dimensional quantum mechanics. III: precise classification of irreducible intertwining operators

In this part of the work, we present a detailed classification of first order intertwining operators and of really irreducible intertwining second order operators of I, II, and III types. This

Non-Hermitian quantum mechanics of non-diagonalizable Hamiltonians: puzzles with self-orthogonal states

We consider quantum mechanics with non-Hermitian quasi-diagonalizable Hamiltonians, i.e. the Hamiltonians having a number of Jordan cells, in particular, biorthogonal bases. The 'self-orthogonality'

Confluent second-order supersymmetric quantum mechanics and spectral design

The confluent second-order supersymmetric quantum mechanics, in which the factorization energies tend to a common value, is used to generate Hamiltonians with known spectra departing from the

Equivalent non-rational extensions of the harmonic oscillator, their ladder operators and coherent states

In this work, we generate a family of quantum potentials that are non-rational extensions of the harmonic oscillator. Such a family can be obtained via two different but equivalent supersymmetric

Harmonic Oscillator SUSY Partners and Evolution Loops

Supersymmetric quantum mechanics is a powerful tool for generating exactly solvable potentials departing from a given initial one. If applied to the harmonic oscillator, a family of Hamiltonians



Higher Order SUSY in Quantum Mechanics and Integrability of Two-dimensional Hamiltonians

The new method based on the SUSY algebra with supercharges of higher order in derivatives is proposed to search for dynamical symmetry operators in 2-dim quantum and classical systems. These symmetry

Matrix Hamiltonians: SUSY approach to hidden symmetries

A new supersymmetric approach to dynamical symmetries for matrix quantum systems is explored. In contrast to standard one-dimensional quantum mechanics where there is no role for an additional

Polynomial supersymmetry and dynamical symmetries in quantum mechanics

A polynomial generalization of supersymmetry in quantum mechanics in one and two dimensions is proposed. Polynomial superalgebras in one dimension are classified. In two dimensions, a detailed

Different ways to incorporate two-dimensional systems which are not amenable to separation of variables treatment into the framework of supersymmetrical quantum mechanics (SUSY QM) are analysed. In


A class of integrable two-dimensional (2D) classical systems with integrals of motion of fourth order in momenta is obtained from the quantum analogues with the help of deformed SUSY algebra. With

Higher-order SUSY, linearized nonlinear Heisenberg algebras and coherent states

Using an iterative construction of the first-order intertwining technique, we find k-parametric families of exactly solvable anharmonic oscillators whose spectra consist of a part isospectral to the


In a search for pairs of quantum systems linked by dynamical symmetries, we give a systematic analysis of novel extensions of standard one-dimensional supersymmetric quantum mechanics. The most
