Crypto-unitary quantum evolution operators

Miloslav Znojil

For the description of quantum evolution, the use of a manifestly time-dependent quantum Hamiltonian \(\mathfrak{h}(t) =\mathfrak{h}^\dagger(t)\) is shown equivalent to the work with its simplified, time-independent alternative \(G\neq G^\dagger\). A tradeoff analysis is performed recommending the latter option. The physical unitarity requirement is shown fulfilled in a suitable ad hocrepresentation of Hilbert space.
