Localization of the states of a \(PT\)-symmetric double well. (English) Zbl 1329.81168

Summary: We make a nodal analysis of the processes of level crossings in a model of quantum mechanics with a \(PT\)-symmetric double well. We prove the existence of infinite crossings with their selection rules. At the crossing, before the PT-symmetry breaking and the localization, we have a total P-symmetry breaking of the states.
