- May 16 2018 quant-ph arXiv:1805.05380v2In an asymmetric multislit interference experiment, a quanton is more likely to pass through certain slits than some others. In such a situation one may be able to predict which slit a quanton is more likely to go through, even without using any path-detecting device. This allows one to talk of \em path predictability. It has been shown earlier that for a two-slit interference, the predictability and fringe visibility are constrained by the inequality $\mathcal{P}^2+\mathcal{V}^2\le 1$. Generalizing this relation to the case of more than two slits is still an unsolved problem. A new definition for predictability for multi-slit interference is introduced. It is shown that this predictability and \em quantum coherence follow a duality relation $\mathcal{P}^2+\mathcal{C}^2\le 1$, which saturates for all pure states. For the case of two slits, this relation reduces to the previously known one.
- In this article we discuss generalized harmonic confinement of massless Dirac fermions in (2+1) dimensions using smooth finite magnetic fields. It is shown that these types of magnetic fields lead to conditional confinement, that is confinement is possible only when the angular momentum (and parameters which depend on it) assumes some specific values. The solutions for non zero energy states as well as zero energy states have been found exactly.
- We study the two-dimensional massless Dirac equation for a potential that is allowed to depend on the energy and on one of the spatial variables. After determining a modified orthogonality relation and norm for such systems, we present an application involving an energy-dependent version of the hyperbolic Scarf potential. We construct closed-form bound state solutions of the associated Dirac equation.
- The Dirac oscillator in a homogenous magnetic field exhibits a chirality phase transition at a particular (critical) value of the magnetic field. Recently, this system has also been shown to be exactly solvable in the context of noncommutative quantum mechanics featuring the interesting phenomenon of re-entrant phase transitions. In this work we provide a detailed study of the thermodynamics of such quantum phase transitions (both in the standard and in the noncommutative case) within the Maxwell-Boltzmann statistics pointing out that the magnetization has discontinuities at critical values of the magnetic field even at finite temperatures.
- We devise a supersymmetry-based method for the construction of zero-energy states in graphene. Our method is applied to a two-dimensional massless Dirac equation with a hyperbolic scalar potential. We determine supersymmetric partners of our initial system and derive a reality condition for the transformed potential. The Dirac potentials generated by our method can be used to approximate interactions that are experimentally realizable.
- We introduce generalized versions of complex Scarf and Morse-type potentials that con- tain energy-dependent parameters. PT -symmetry and pseudo-hermiticity of the associated quantum systems are discussed, and a modified orthogonality relation and pseudo-norm are constructed. We show that despite energy-dependence, our systems can admit real energy spectra and normalizable solutions of bound-state type.
- We construct energy-dependent potentials for which the Schroedinger equations admit solu- tions in terms of exceptional orthogonal polynomials. Our method of construction is based on certain point transformations, applied to the equations of exceptional Hermite, Jacobi and Laguerre polynomials. We present several examples of boundary-value problems with energy-dependent potentials that admit a discrete spectrum and the corresponding normalizable solutions in closed form.
- It is shown that bound state solutions of the one dimensional Bogoliubov-de Gennes (BdG) equation may exist when the Fermi velocity becomes dependent on the space coordinate. The existence of bound states in continuum (BIC) like solutions has also been confirmed both in the normal phase as well as in the super-conducting phase. We also show that a combination of Fermi velocity and gap parameter step-like profiles provides scattering solutions with normal reflection and transmission.
- Oct 28 2016 cond-mat.other quant-ph arXiv:1610.08518v1Area laws were first discovered by Bekenstein and Hawking, who found that the entropy of a black hole grows proportional to its surface area, and not its volume. Entropy area laws have since become a fundamental part of modern physics, from the holographic principle in quantum gravity to ground state wavefunctions of quantum matter, where entanglement entropy is generically found to obey area law scaling. As no experiments are currently capable of directly probing the entanglement area law in naturally occurring many-body systems, evidence of its existence is based on studies of simplified theories. Using new exact microscopic numerical simulations of superfluid $^4$He, we demonstrate for the first time an area law scaling of entanglement entropy in a real quantum liquid in three dimensions. We validate the fundamental principles underlying its physical origin, and present an "entanglement equation of state" showing how it depends on the density of the superfluid.
- By using the technique of supersymmetric quantum mechanics, we study a quasi exactly solvable extension of the N-particle rational Calogero model with harmonic confining interaction. Such quasi exactly solvable many particle system, whose effective potential in the radial direction yields a supersymmetric partner of the radial harmonic oscillator, is constructed by including new long-range interactions to the rational Calogero model. An infinite number of bound state energy levels are obtained for this system under certain conditions. We also calculate the corresponding bound state wave functions in terms of the recently discovered exceptional orthogonal Laguerre polynomials.
- Jun 13 2016 cond-mat.quant-gas quant-ph arXiv:1606.03396v1We consider the entanglement between two spatial subregions in the Lieb-Liniger model of bosons in one spatial dimension interacting via a contact interaction. Using ground state path integral quantum Monte Carlo we numerically compute the Rényi entropy of the reduced density matrix of the subsystem as a measure of entanglement. Our numerical algorithm is based on a replica method previously introduced by the authors, which we extend to efficiently study the entanglement of spatial subsystems of itinerant bosons. We confirm a logarithmic scaling of the Rényi entropy with subsystem size that is expected from conformal field theory, and compute the non-universal subleading constant for interaction strengths ranging over two orders of magnitude. In the strongly interacting limit, we find agreement with the known free fermion result.
- We study information theoretic geometry in time dependent quantum mechanical systems. First, we discuss global properties of the parameter manifold for two level systems exemplified by i) Rabi oscillations and ii) quenching dynamics of the XY spin chain in a transverse magnetic field, when driven across anisotropic criticality. Next, we comment upon the nature of the geometric phase from classical holonomy analyses of such parameter manifolds. In the context of the transverse XY model in the thermodynamic limit, our results are in contradiction to those in the existing literature, and we argue why the issue deserves a more careful analysis. Finally, we speculate on a novel geometric phase in the model, when driven across a quantum critical line.
- Dec 22 2015 cond-mat.quant-gas quant-ph arXiv:1512.06462v2Inspired by the experimental measurement of the Renyi entanglement entropy in a lattice of ultracold atoms by Islam et al., [Nature 528, 77 (2015)] we propose a method to entangle two spatially-separated qubits using the quantum many-body state as a resource. Through local operations accessible in an experiment, entanglement is transferred to a qubit register from atoms at the ends of a one-dimensional chain. We compute the operational entanglement, which bounds the entanglement physically transferable from the many-body resource to the register, and discuss a protocol for its experimental measurement. Finally, we explore measures for the amount of entanglement available in the register after transfer, suitable for use in quantum information applications.
- Using the concept of complex non PT symmetric potential we study creation of zero energy states in graphene by a scalar potential. The admissible range of the potential parameter values for which such states exist has been examined. The situation with respect to the holes has also been investigated.
- We obtain exact solutions of the (2+1) dimensional Dirac oscillator in a homogeneous magnetic field within the Anti-Snyder modified uncertainty relation characterized by a momentum cut-off ($p\leq p_{\text{max}}=1/ \sqrt{\beta}$). In ordinary quantum mechanics ($\beta\to 0$) this system is known to have a single left-right chiral quantum phase transition (QPT). We show that a finite momentum cut-off modifies the spectrum introducing additional quantum phase transitions. It is also shown that the presence of momentum cut-off modifies the degeneracy of the states.
- We utilize the relation between soliton solutions of the mKdV and the combined mKdV-KdV equation and the Dirac equation to construct electrostatic fields which yield exact zero energy states of graphene.
- We obtain exact solutions of the (2+1) dimensional Dirac oscillator in a homogeneous magnetic field within a minimal length ($\Delta x_0=\hbar \sqrt{\beta}$), or generalised uncertainty principle (GUP) scenario. This system in ordinary quantum mechanics has a single left-right chiral quantum phase transition (QPT). We show that a non zero minimal length turns on a infinite number of quantum phase transitions which accumulate towards the known QPT when $\beta \to 0$. It is also shown that the presence of the minimal length modifies the degeneracy of the states and that in this case there exist a new class of states which do not survive in the ordinary quantum mechanics limit $\beta \to 0$.
- We study the (2+1) dimensional Dirac oscillator in a homogeneous magnetic field in the non-commutative plane. It is shown that the effect of non-commutativity is twofold: $i$) momentum non commuting coordinates simply shift the critical value ($B_{\text{cr}}$) of the magnetic field at which the well known left-right chiral quantum phase transition takes place (in the commuting phase); $ii$) non-commutativity in the space coordinates induces a new critical value of the magnetic field, $B_{\text{cr}}^*$, where there is a second quantum phase transition (right-left), --this critical point disappears in the commutative limit--. The change in chirality associated with the magnitude of the magnetic field is examined in detail for both critical points. The phase transitions are described in terms of the magnetisation of the system. Possible applications to the physics of silicene and graphene are briefly discussed.
- We study $(2+1)$ dimensional Dirac equation with complex scalar and Lorentz scalar potentials. It is shown that the Dirac equation admits exact analytical solutions with real eigenvalues for certain complex potentials while for another class of potentials zero energy solutions can be obtained analytically. For the scalar potential cases, it has also been shown that the \it effective Schrödinger-like equations resulting from decoupling the spinor components can be interpreted as exactly solvable energy dependent Schrödinger equations.
- We obtain zero energy states in graphene for a number of potentials and discuss the relation of the decoupled Schrödinger-like equations for the the spinor components with non relativistic $\cal{PT}$ symmetric quantum mechanics.
- Apr 29 2014 cond-mat.quant-gas quant-ph arXiv:1404.7104v2We introduce a quantum Monte Carlo algorithm to measure the Rényi entanglement entropies in systems of interacting bosons in the continuum. This approach is based on a path integral ground state method that can be applied to interacting itinerant bosons in any spatial dimension with direct relevance to experimental systems of quantum fluids. We demonstrate how it may be used to compute spatial mode entanglement, particle partitioned entanglement, and the entanglement of particles, providing insights into quantum correlations generated by fluctuations, indistinguishability and interactions. We present proof-of-principle calculations, and benchmark against an exactly soluble model of interacting bosons in one spatial dimension. As this algorithm retains the fundamental polynomial scaling of quantum Monte Carlo when applied to sign-problem-free models, future applications should allow for the study of entanglement entropy in large scale many-body systems of interacting bosons.
- Jan 22 2014 quant-ph arXiv:1401.5255v1We investigate some questions on the construction of $\eta$ operators for pseudo-Hermitian Hamiltonians. We give a sufficient condition which can be exploited to systematically generate a sequence of $\eta$ operators starting from a known one, thereby proving the non-uniqueness of $\eta$ for a particular pseudo-Hermitian Hamiltonian. We also study perturbed Hamiltonians for which $\eta$'s corresponding to the original Hamiltonian still work.
- Nov 01 2013 cond-mat.quant-gas quant-ph arXiv:1310.8332v2Entanglement of spatial bipartitions, used to explore lattice models in condensed matter physics, may be insufficient to fully describe itinerant quantum many-body systems in the continuum. We introduce a procedure to measure the Rényi entanglement entropies on a particle bipartition, with general applicability to continuum Hamiltonians via path integral Monte Carlo methods. Via direct simulations of interacting bosons in one spatial dimension, we confirm a logarithmic scaling of the single-particle entanglement entropy with the number of particles in the system. The coefficient of this logarithmic scaling increases with interaction strength, saturating to unity in the strongly interacting limit. Additionally, we show that the single-particle entanglement entropy is bounded by the condensate fraction, suggesting a practical route towards its measurement in future experiments.
- We study the (2+1) dimensional Dirac equation in an homogeneous magnetic field (relativistic Landau problem) within a minimal length, or generalized uncertainty principle -GUP-, scenario. We derive exact solutions for a given explicit representation of the GUP and provide expressions of the wave functions in the momentum representation. We find that in the minimal length case the degeneracy of the states is modified and that there are states that do not exist in the ordinary quantum mechanics limit (\beta -->0). We also discuss the mass-less case which may find application in describing the behavior of charged fermions in new materials like Graphene.
- We study generalized Dirac oscillators with complex interactions in $(1+1)$ dimensions. It is shown that for the choice of interactions considered here, the Dirac Hamiltonians are $\eta$ pseudo Hermitian with respect to certain metric operators $\eta$. Exact solutions of the generalized Dirac Oscillator for some choices of the interactions have also been obtained. It is also shown that generalized Dirac oscillators can be identified with Anti Jaynes Cummings type model and by spin flip it can also be identified with Jaynes Cummings type model.
- We study information geometry of the Dicke model, in the thermodynamic limit. The scalar curvature $R$ of the Riemannian metric tensor induced on the parameter space of the model is calculated. We analyze this both with and without the rotating wave approximation, and show that the parameter manifold is smooth even at the phase transition, and that the scalar curvature is continuous across the phase boundary.
- We examine the one dimensional Dirac equation with modulated or position dependent velocity. In particular, it is shown that using suitable velocity profiles it is possible to create bound state in continuum (BIC) like, as well as, discrete energy bound state solutions.
- In this Letter we have explicitly constructed Generalized Coherent States for the Non-Commutative Harmonic Oscillator that directly satisfy the Generalized Uncertainty Principle (GUP). Our results have a smooth commutative limit. The states show fractional revival which provides an independent bound on the GUP parameter. Using this and similar bounds we derive the largest possible value of the (GUP induced) minimum length scale. Mandel parameter analysis shows that the statistics is Sub-Poissionian.
- The present article discusses magnetic confinement of the Dirac excitations in graphene in presence of inhomogeneous magnetic fields. In the first case a magnetic field directed along the z axis whose magnitude is proportional to $1/r$ is chosen. In the next case we choose a more realistic magnetic field which does not blow up at the origin and gradually fades away from the origin. The magnetic fields chosen do not have any finite/infinite discontinuity for finite values of the radial coordinate. The novelty of the two magnetic fields is related to the equations which are used to find the excited spectra of the excitations. It turns out that the bound state solutions of the two-dimensional hydrogen atom problem are related to the spectra of graphene excitations in presence of the $1/r$ (inverse-radial) magnetic field. For the other magnetic field profile one can use the knowledge of the bound state spectrum of a two-dimensional cut-off Coulomb potential to dictate the excitation spectra of the states of graphene. The spectrum of the graphene excitations in presence of the inverse-radial magnetic field can be exactly solved while the other case cannot be. In the later case we give the localized solutions of the zero-energy states in graphene.
- We evaluate Shannon entropy for the position and momentum eigenstates of some conditionally exactly solvable potentials which are isospectral to harmonic oscillator and whose solutions are given in terms of exceptional orthogonal polynomials. The Bialynicki-Birula-Mycielski (BBM) inequality has also been tested for a number of states.
- We apply the factorization technique developed by Kuru and Negro [Ann. Phys. 323 (2008) 413] to study complex classical systems. As an illustration we apply the technique to study the classical analogue of the exactly solvable PT symmetric Scarf II model, which exhibits the interesting phenomenon of spontaneous breakdown of PT symmetry at some critical point. As the parameters are tuned such that energy switches from real to complex conjugate pairs, the corresponding classical trajectories display a distinct characteristic feature - the closed orbits become open ones.
- Oct 30 2009 quant-ph arXiv:0910.5601v1It is shown that the results of ref [1] are consistent.
- Aug 13 2009 quant-ph arXiv:0908.1755v1We study non-Hermitian quantum mechanics in the presence of a minimal length. In particular we obtain exact solutions of a non-Hermitian displaced harmonic oscillator and the Swanson model with minimal length uncertainty. The spectrum in both the cases are found to be real. It is also shown that the models are $\eta$ pseudo-Hermitian and the metric operator is found explicitly in both the cases.
- It is shown that for a class of position dependent mass Schroedinger equation the shape invariance condition is equivalent to a potential symmetry algebra. Explicit realization of such algebras have been obtained for some shape invariant potentials.
- We obtain exact solutions of the (1+1) dimensional Klein Gordon equation with linear vector and scalar potentials in the presence of a minimal length. Algebraic approach to the problem has also been studied.
- Jan 08 2009 quant-ph arXiv:0901.0804v1A one-to-one correspondence is known to exist between the spectra of the discrete states of the non Hermitian Swanson-type Hamiltonian $ H = {\cal{A}}^{\dagger} {\cal{A}} + \alpha {\cal{A}} ^2 + \beta {\cal{A}}^{\dagger 2} $, ($\alpha \neq \beta $), and an equivalent Hermitian Schrödinger Hamiltonian $h$, the two Hamiltonians being related through a similarity transformation. In this work we consider the continuum states of $h$, and examine the nature of the corresponding states of $H$.
- New non Hermitian Hamiltonians are generated, as isospectral partners of the generalized Swanson model, viz., $ H_- = {\cal{A}}^{\dagger} {\cal{A}} + \alpha {\cal{A}} ^2 + \beta {\cal{A}}^{\dagger 2} $, where $ \alpha \beta $ are real constants, with $ \alpha \neq \beta $, and ${\cal{A}}^{\dagger}$ and ${\cal{A}}$ are generalized creation and annihilation operators. It is shown that the initial Hamiltonian $H_-$, and its partner $H_+$, are related by pseudo supersymmetry, and they share all the eigen energies except for the ground state. This pseudo supersymmetric extension enlarges the class of non Hermitian Hamiltonians $H_{\pm}$, related to their respective Hermitian counterparts $h_{\pm}$, through the same similarity transformation operator $\rho$ : $ H_{\pm} = \rho ^{-1} h_{\pm} \rho $. The formalism is applied to the entire class of shape-invariant models.
- We study non Hermitian quantum systems in noncommutative space as well as a \calPT-symmetric deformation of this space. Specifically, a \mathcalPT-symmetric harmonic oscillator together with iC(x_1+x_2) interaction is discussed in this space and solutions are obtained. It is shown that in the \calPT deformed noncommutative space the Hamiltonian may or may not possess real eigenvalues depending on the choice of the noncommutative parameters. However, it is shown that in standard noncommutative space, the iC(x_1+x_2) interaction generates only real eigenvalues despite the fact that the Hamiltonian is not \mathcalPT-symmetric. A complex interacting anisotropic oscillator system has also been discussed.
- Oct 08 2007 quant-ph arXiv:0710.1146v1We analyze a class of non-Hermitian quadratic Hamiltonians, which are of the form $ H = {\cal{A}}^{\dagger} {\cal{A}} + \alpha {\cal{A}} ^2 + \beta {\cal{A}}^{\dagger 2} $, where $ \alpha, \beta $ are real constants, with $ \alpha \neq \beta $, and ${\cal{A}}^{\dagger}$ and ${\cal{A}}$ are generalized creation and annihilation operators. Thus these Hamiltonians may be classified as generalized Swanson models. It is shown that the eigenenergies are real for a certain range of values of the parameters. A similarity transformation $\rho$, mapping the non-Hermitian Hamiltonian $H$ to a Hermitian one $h$, is also obtained. It is shown that $H$ and $h$ share identical energies. As explicit examples, the solutions of a couple of models based on the trigonometric Rosen-Morse I and the hyperbolic Rosen-Morse II type potentials are obtained. We also study the case when the non-Hermitian Hamiltonian is ${\cal{PT}}$ symmetric.
- May 31 2007 quant-ph arXiv:0705.4376v1We obtain closed form expression of the C(x,y) operator for the PT symmetric Scarf I potential. It is also shown that the eigenfunctions are complete.
- Using the shape invariance property we obtain exact solutions of the (1+1)dimensional Klein-Gordon equation for certain types of scalar and vector potentials. We also discuss the possibility of obtaining real energy spectrum with non-Hermitian interaction within this framework.
- Jun 22 2006 quant-ph arXiv:quant-ph/0606175v1We use the Gazeau-Klauder formalism to construct coherent states of non-Hermitian quantum systems. In particular we use this formalism to construct coherent state of a PT symmetric system. We also discuss construction of coherent states following Klauder's minimal prescription.
- Nov 30 2005 quant-ph arXiv:quant-ph/0511252v1We study $(1+1)$ dimensional Dirac equation with non Hermitian interactions, but real energies. In particular, we analyze the pseudoscalar and scalar interactions in detail, illustrating our observations with some examples. We also show that the relevant hidden symmetry of the Dirac equation with such an interaction is pseudo supersymmetry.
- Mar 04 2005 quant-ph arXiv:quant-ph/0503040v1We give an explicit example of an exactly solvable PT-symmetric Hamiltonian with the unbroken PT symmetry which has one eigenfunction with the zero PT-norm. The set of its eigenfunctions is not complete in corresponding Hilbert space and it is non-diagonalizable. In the case of a regular Sturm-Liouville problem any diagonalizable PT-symmetric Hamiltonian with the unbroken PT symmetry has a complete set of positive CPT-normalazable eigenfunctions. For non-diagonalizable Hamiltonians a complete set of CPT-normalazable functions is possible but the functions belonging to the root subspace corresponding to multiple zeros of the characteristic determinant are not eigenfunctions of the Hamiltonian anymore.
- Jan 13 2004 quant-ph arXiv:quant-ph/0401064v1A conditionally exactly solvable potential, the supersymmetric partner of the harmonic oscillator is investigated in the PT-symmetric setting. It is shown that a number of properties characterizing shape-invariant and Natanzon-class potentials generated by an imaginary coordinate shift $x-{\rm i}\epsilon$ also hold for this potential outside the Natanzon class.
- We demonstrate that neutral Dirac particles in external electric fields, which are equivalent to generalized Dirac oscillators, are physical examples of quasi-exactly solvable systems. Electric field configurations permitting quasi-exact solvability of the system based on the $sl(2)$ symmetry are discussed separately in spherical, cylindrical, and Cartesian coordinates. Some exactly solvable field configurations are also exhibited.
- Dec 11 2003 quant-ph arXiv:quant-ph/0312089v1A series of exactly solvable non-trivial complex potentials (possessing real spectra) are generated by applying the Darboux transformation to the excited eigenstates of a non-Hermitian potential V(x). This method yields an infinite number of non-trivial partner potentials, defined over the whole real line, whose spectra are nearly exactly identical to the original potential.
- Dec 10 2003 quant-ph arXiv:quant-ph/0312085v2We examine in detail the possibilty of applying Darboux transformation to non Hermitian hamiltonians. In particular we propose a simple method of constructing exactly solvable PT symmetric potentials by applying Darboux transformation to higher states of an exactly solvable PT symmetric potential. It is shown that the resulting hamiltonian and the original one are pseudo supersymmetric partners. We also discuss application of Darboux transformation to hamiltonians with spontaneously broken PT symmetry.
- Jun 05 2003 quant-ph arXiv:quant-ph/0306030v2The ${\cal PT}$ symmetric version of the generalised Ginocchio potential, a member of the general exactly solvable Natanzon potential class is analysed and its properties are compared with those of ${\cal PT}$ symmetric potentials from the more restricted shape-invariant class. It is found that the ${\cal PT}$ symmetric generalised Ginocchio potential has a number of properties in common with the latter potentials: it can be generated by an imaginary coordinate shift $x\to x+{\rm i}\epsilon$; its states are characterised by the quasi-parity quantum number; the spontaneous breakdown of ${\cal PT}$ symmetry occurs at the same time for all the energy levels; and it has two supersymmetric partners which cease to be ${\cal PT}$ symmetric when the ${\cal PT}$ symmetry of the original potential is spontaneously broken.

It is found that the ${\cal PT}$ symmetric generalised Ginocchio potential has a number of properties in common with the latter potentials: it can be generated by an imaginary coordinate shift $x\to x+{\rm i}\epsilon$; its states are characterised by the quasi-parity quantum number; the spontaneous breakdown of ${\cal PT}$ symmetry occurs at the same time for all the energy levels; and it has two supersymmetric partners which cease to be ${\cal PT}$ symmetric when the ${\cal PT}$ symmetry of the original potential is spontaneously broken.
- We present a general procedure for determining possible (nonuniform) magnetic fields such that the Pauli equation becomes quasi-exactly solvable (QES) with an underlying $sl(2)$ symmetry. This procedure makes full use of the close connection between QES systems and supersymmetry. Of the ten classes of $sl(2)$-based one-dimensional QES systems, we have found that nine classes allow such construction.
- Jun 07 2001 quant-ph arXiv:quant-ph/0106028v1We outline a general method of obtaining exact solutions of Schroedinger equations with a position dependent effective mass. Exact solutions of several potentials including shape invariant potentials have also been obtained.
- Apr 12 2001 quant-ph arXiv:quant-ph/0104059v2We complexify one of the Natanzon's exactly solvable potentials in PT symmetric manner and discover that it supports the pairs of bound states with the same number of nodal zeros. This could indicate that the Sturm Liouville oscillation theorem does not admit an immediate generalization.
- We investigate complex PT-symmetric potentials, associated with quasi-exactly solvable non-hermitian models involving polynomials and a class of rational functions. We also look for special solutions of intertwining relations of SUSY Quantum Mechanics providing a partnership between a real and a complex PT-symmetric potential of the kind mentioned above. We investigate conditions sufficient to ensure the reality of the full spectrum or, for the quasi-exactly solvable systems, the reality of the energy of the finite number of levels.
- Apr 10 2000 quant-ph arXiv:quant-ph/0004034v2We use a Lie algebraic technique to construct complex quasi exactly solvable potentials with real spectrum. In particular we obtain exact solutions of a complex sextic oscillator potential and also a complex potential belonging to the Morse family.
- Feb 16 2000 quant-ph arXiv:quant-ph/0002043v2We study phase properties of a displacement operator type nonlinear coherent state. In particular we evaluate the Pegg-Barnett phase distribution and compare it with phase distributions associated with the Husimi Q function and the Wigner function. We also study number- phase squeezing of this state.
- Jan 11 2000 quant-ph arXiv:quant-ph/0001027v1We construct a displacement operator type nonlinear coherent state and examine some of its properties. In particular it is shown that this nonlinear coherent state exhibits nonclassical properties like squeezing and sub-Poissonian behaviour.
- Nov 12 1999 quant-ph arXiv:quant-ph/9911048v1We study the motion of a spin 1/2 particle in a scalar as well as a magnetic field within the framework of supersymmetric quantum mechanics(SUSYQM). We also introduce the concept of shape invariant scalar and magnetic fields and it is shown that the problem admits exact analytical solutions when such fields are considered.
- Sep 22 1999 quant-ph arXiv:quant-ph/9909064v1We construct even and odd nonlinear coherent states of a parametric oscillator and examine their nonclassical properties.It has been shown that these superpositions exhibit squeezing and photon antibunching which change with time.
- Sep 02 1999 quant-ph arXiv:quant-ph/9909004v2A general procedure is presented to construct conditionally solvable (CES) potentials using the techniques of supersymmetric quantum mechanics.The method is illustrated with potentials related to the harmonic oscillator problem.Besides recovering known results,new CES potentials are also obtained within the framework of this general approach.The conditions under which this method leads to CES potentials are also discussed.
- Jun 01 1999 quant-ph arXiv:quant-ph/9905102v1We study one dimensional supersymmetric (SUSY) quantum mechanics of a spin 1/2 particle moving in a rotating magnetic field and scalar potential. We also discuss SUSY breaking and it is shown that SUSY breaking essentially depends on the strength and period of the magnetic field. For a purely rotating magnetic field the eigenvalue problem is solved exactly and two band energy spectrum is found.
- Jul 30 1998 quant-ph arXiv:quant-ph/9807081v1Recently, based on a supersymmetric approach, new classes of conditionally exactly solvable problems have been found, which exhibit a symmetry structure characterized by non-linear algebras. In this paper the associated ``non-linear'' coherent states are constructed and some of their properties are discussed in detail.
- Mar 12 1998 quant-ph arXiv:quant-ph/9803024v1We present in this paper a rather general method for the construction of so-called conditionally exactly solvable potentials. This method is based on algebraic tools known from supersymmetric quantum mechanics. Various families of one-dimensional potentials are constructed whose corresponding Schrödinger eigenvalue problem can be solved exactly under certain conditions of the potential parameters. Examples of quantum systems on the real line, the half line as well as on some finite interval are studied in detail.
- Using algebraic tools of supersymmetric quantum mechanics we construct classes of conditionally exactly solvable potentials being the supersymmetric partners of the linear or radial harmonic oscillator. With the help of the raising and lowering operators of these harmonic oscillators and the SUSY operators we construct ladder operators for these new conditionally solvable systems. It is found that these ladder operators together with the Hamilton operator form a non-linear algebra which is of quadratic and cubic type for the SUSY partners of the linear and radial harmonic oscillator, respectively.
