Complex Symmetric Forms and the Emergence of Jordan Blocks in Analytically Extended Quantum Theory
2009 (English)In: International Journal of Computer Mathematics, ISSN 0020-7160, E-ISSN 1029-0265, Vol. 86, no 2, 315-319 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The justification and rationale for analytically continuing quantum mechanics into the complex plane are recognized and briefly discussed. This extension is described by a complex symmetric representation, which is derived and demonstrated to include general Jordan block forms of Segre characteristics larger than one. Various applications in physics and chemistry, in which this extension appears necessary, are pointed out.
