Infinite series of time-dependent Dyson maps

Fring, A. ORCID: 0000-0002-7896-7161 & Tenney, R. (2021). Infinite series of time-dependent Dyson maps. Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical, 54, 485201. doi: 10.1088/1751-8121/ac31a0


We propose and explore a scheme that leads to an infinite series of time-dependent Dyson maps which associate different Hermitian Hamiltonians to a uniquely specified time-dependent non-Hermitian Hamiltonian. We identify the underlying symmetries responsible for this feature respected by various Lewis-Riesenfeld invariants. The latter are used to facilitate the explicit construction of the Dyson maps and metric operators. As a concrete example for which the scheme is worked out in detail we present a two-dimensional system of oscillators that are coupled to each other in a non-Hermitian PT-symmetrical fashion.
