Fring, A. ORCID: 0000-0002-7896-7161 & Frith, T. (2018). Quasi-exactly solvable quantum systems with explicitly time-dependent Hamiltonians. Physics Letters A, doi: 10.1016/j.physleta.2018.10.043


For a large class of time-dependent non-Hermitian Hamiltonians expressed in terms linear and bilinear combinations of the generators for an Euclidean Lie-algebra respecting different types of PT-symmetries, we find explicit solutions to the time-dependent Dyson equation. A specific Hermitian model with explicit time-dependence is analyzed further and shown to be quasi-exactly solvable. Technically we constructed the Lewis–Riesenfeld invariants making use of the metric picture, which is an equivalent alternative to the Schrödinger, Heisenberg and interaction picture containing the time-dependence in the metric operator that relates the time-dependent Hermitian Hamiltonian to a static non-Hermitian Hamiltonian.
