Scattering Theory for 0-Perturbed \( \mathcal{P}\mathcal{T} \) -Symmetric Operators

  • A. I. Hrod
  • S. O. Kuzhel’

The aim of the present work is to develop the scattering theory for 0-perturbed \( \mathcal{P}\mathcal{T} \) -symmetric operators by using the Lax–Phillips method. The presence of a stable \( \mathcal{C} \) -symmetry leading to the property of selfadjointness (with proper choice of the inner product) for these \( \mathcal{P}\mathcal{T} \) -symmetric operators is described in terms of the corresponding S -matrix (scattering matrix).
