Cen, J., Fring, A. ORCID: 0000-0002-7896-7161 & Frith, T. (2019). Time-dependent Darboux (supersymmetric) transformations for non-Hermitian quantum systems. Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical, 52(11), article number 115302. doi: 10.1088/1751-8121/ab0335


We propose time-dependent Darboux (supersymmetric) transformations that provide a scheme for the calculation of explicitly time-dependent solvable non-Hermitian partner Hamiltonians. Together with two Hermitian Hamilitonians the latter form a quadruple of Hamiltonians that are related by two time-dependent Dyson equations and two intertwining relations in form of a commutative diagram. Our construction is extended to the entire hierarchy of Hamiltonians obtained from time-dependent Darboux-Crum transformations. 
 As an alternative approach we also discuss the intertwining relations for Lewis-Riesenfeld invariants for Hermitian as well as non-Hermitian Hamiltonians that reduce the time-dependent equations to auxiliary eigenvalue equations. The working of our proposals is discussed for a hierarchy of explicitly time-dependent rational, hyperbolic, Airy function and nonlocal potentials.
