The geometrical properties of parity and time reversal operators in two dimensional spaces
- 2 Downloads
The parity operator P and time reversal operator T are two important operators in the quantum theory, in particular, in the PT-symmetric quantum theory. By using the concrete forms of P and T, we discuss their geometrical properties in two dimensional spaces. It is showed that if T is given, then all P links with the quadric surfaces; if P is given, then all T links with the quadric curves. Moreover, we give out the generalized unbroken PT-symmetric condition of an operator. The unbroken PT-symmetry of a Hermitian operator is also showed in this way.
