I’d like to make a comment about the article “Exact Isospectral Pairs of PT-Symmetric Hamiltonians”.

The Hamiltonian of a system (regardless of PT-symmetry or not) can be seen as a “natural Laplacian operator on some manifold”, i.e., it can be treated as the Laplacian of a given manifold.

In this sense, “isospectral Hamiltonians” would be equivalent to saying

isospectral manifolds.These manifolds would, in some sense, represent the Configuration Space of these Hamiltonians.

The point is: these distinct configuration manifolds yield different Phase Spaces, which have unequal quantization rules: Phase Space Quantization. Nowadays, Phase Space Quantization has become Geometric Quantization and Deformation Quantization.

Anyway… the weather is changing, i’m in pain… and now i’m rambling too. 😦

Maybe i’ll have something useful to say when my brain comes back online… 😛
