Gauged quantum mechanics (PTQM) and corresponding Krein space setups are studied. For models with constant non-Abelian gauge potentials and extended parity inversions compact and noncompact Lie group components are analyzed via Cartan decompositions. A Lie-triple structure is found and an interpretation as -symmetrically generalized Jaynes–Cummings model is possible with close relation to recently studied cavity QED setups with transmon states in multilevel artificial atoms. For models with… 

Symmetry, Geometry and Quantization with Hypercomplex Numbers

These notes describe some links between the group SL2(R), the Heisenberg group and hypercomplex numbers - complex, dual and double numbers. Relations between quantum and classical mechanics are

On the Similarity of Sturm–Liouville Operators with Non-Hermitian Boundary Conditions to Self-Adjoint and Normal Operators

We consider one-dimensional Schrödinger-type operators in a bounded interval with non-self-adjoint Robin-type boundary conditions. It is well known that such operators are generically conjugate to

Erlangen Programme at Large 3.2: Ladder Operators in Hypercomplex Mechanics

We revise the construction of creation/annihilation operators in quantum mechanics based on the representation theory of the Heisenberg and symplectic groups. Besides the standard harmonic oscillator

The paper is devoted to the development of the theory of self-adjoint operators in Krein spaces (J-self-adjoint operators) involving some additional properties arising from the existence of


UDC 517.98 We develop a general theory of PT -symmetric operators. Special attention is given to PT -symmetric quasiself-adjoint extensions of symmetric operator with deficiency indices h2;2i: For

Hypercomplex Representations of the Heisenberg Group and Mechanics

In the spirit of geometric quantisation we consider representations of the Heisenberg(–Weyl) group induced by hypercomplex characters of its centre. This allows to gather under the same framework,

Coquaternionic Quantum Dynamics for Two-level Systems

The dynamical aspects of a spin-1/2 particle in Hermitian coquaternionic quantum theory are investigated. It is shown that the time evolution exhibits three different characteristics, depending on

Nonlinearity of perturbations in P T -symmetric quantum mechanics

In the so called crypto-Hermitian formulation of quantum theory (incorporating, in particular, the P T -symmetric quantum mechanics as its special case) the unitary evolution of a system is known to

On elements of the Lax–Phillips scattering scheme for -symmetric operators

Generalized -symmetric operators acting on a Hilbert space are defined and investigated. The case of -symmetric extensions of a symmetric operator S is investigated in detail. The possible



General aspects of PT -symmetric and P-self-adjoint quantum theory in a Krein space

In our previous work, we proposed a mathematical framework for -symmetric quantum theory, and in particular constructed a Krein space in which -symmetric operators would naturally act. In this work,

Darboux transformations of the Jaynes-Cummings Hamiltonian

A detailed analysis of matrix Darboux transformations under the condition that the derivative of the superpotential be self-adjoint is given. As a consequence, a class of symmetries associated with

On the Lie-Algebraic Origin of Metric 3-Algebras

Since the pioneering work of Bagger–Lambert and Gustavsson, there has been a proliferation of three-dimensional superconformal Chern–Simons theories whose main ingredient is a metric 3-algebra. On

PT-symmetric brachistochrone problem, Lorentz boosts, and nonunitary operator equivalence classes

The $\mathcal{P}\mathcal{T}$-symmetric (PTS) quantum brachistochrone problem is re-analyzed as a quantum system consisting of a non-Hermitian PTS component and a purely Hermitian component

Gauging non-Hermitian Hamiltonians

We address the problem of coupling non-Hermitian systems, treated as fundamental rather than effective theories, to the electromagnetic field. In such theories the observables are not the x and p

J-self-adjoint operators with -symmetries: an extension theory approach

A well-known tool in conventional (von Neumann) quantum mechanics is the self-adjoint extension technique for symmetric operators. It is used, e.g., for the construction of Dirac–Hermitian

n-ary algebras: a review with applications

This paper reviews the properties and applications of certain n-ary generalizations of Lie algebras in a self-contained and unified way. These generalizations are algebraic structures in which the

Extended Jaynes?Cummings models and (quasi)-exact solvability

The original Jaynes–Cummings model is described by a Hamiltonian which is Hermitian and exactly solvable. Here, we extend this model by several types of interactions leading to a non-Hermitian

Cohomology of Lie triple systems and Lie algebras with involution

A Lie triple system is a subspace of a Lie algebra closed under the ternary composition [[xy]z]; equivalently, it may be defined as the subspace of elements mapped into their negatives by an
