A Non-Trivial PT-Symmetric Continuum Hamiltonian and Its Eigenstates and Eigenvalues
Physics and Astronomy
Mathematics and Natural Sciences
In this paper, a non-trivial system governed by a continuum PT-symmetric Hamiltonian is discussed. We show that this Hamiltonian is iso-spectral to the simple harmonic oscillator. We find its eigenfunctions and the path in the complex plane along which these functions form an orthonormal set. We also find the hidden symmetry operator, 𝒞, for this system. All calculations are performed analytically and without approximation.
