Relation between the Berry phase in quantum hermitian and non-hermitian systems and the Hannay phase in the equivalent classical systems

  title={Relation between the Berry phase in quantum hermitian and non-hermitian systems and the Hannay phase in the equivalent classical systems},
  author={H. Fanchiotti and C. A. Garc{\'i}a Canal and Miguel Angel Mayosky and A. Veiga and Vicente Vento},
The well-known geometric phase present in the quantum adiabatic evolution discovered by Berry many years ago has its analogue, the Hannay phase, in the classical domain. We calculate the Berry phase with examples for quantum hermitian and non-hermitian PT -symmetric Hamiltonians and compare with the Hannay phase in their classical equivalents. We use the analogy to propose resonant electric circuits which reproduce the theoretical solutions in simulated laboratory experiments.

Coherent quantum states from classical oscillator amplitudes

In the first days of quantum mechanics Dirac pointed out an analogy between the time-dependent coefficients of an expansion of the Schr\"odinger equation and the classical position and momentum

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

Biorthogonal quantum mechanics

The Hermiticity condition in quantum mechanics required for the characterization of (a) physical observables and (b) generators of unitary motions can be relaxed into a wider class of operators whose

Nonadiabatic Geometrical Phase during Cyclic Evolution of a Gaussian Wave Packet

The Gaussian wave packet solution to the Schr{umlt o}dinger equation is studied for time-dependent Hamiltonians. The geometrical phase is obtained for a cyclic wave packet solution of the generalized

A quantal system in an eigenstate, slowly transported round a circuit C by varying parameters R in its Hamiltonian Ĥ(R), will acquire a geometrical phase factor exp{iγ(C)} in addition to the familiar

Geometric phase effects for wave-packet revivals.

The study of wave-packet revivals is extended to the case of Hamiltonians which are made time dependent through the adiabatic cycling of some parameters. It is shown that the quantal geometric phase

Measuring the Hannay geometric phase

The Hannay geometric phase is the classical analog of the well-known Berry phase. Its most familiar example is the effect of the latitude λ on the motion of a Foucault pendulum. We describe an

Exceptional points in oligomer chains

Symmetry underpins our understanding of physical law. Open systems, those in contact with their environment, can provide a platform to explore parity-time symmetry. While classical parity-time

Experimental study of active LRC circuits with PT symmetries

Mutually coupled modes of a pair of active LRC circuits, one with amplification and another with an equivalent amount of attenuation, provide an experimental realization of a wide class of systems
