Questions tagged [cpt-symmetry]

Use this tag for questions related to CPT symmetry, as relevant to quantum computing or quantum information theory. Charge, parity, and time reversal symmetry is a fundamental symmetry of physical laws under the simultaneous transformations of charge conjugation (C), parity transformation (P), and time reversal (T). CPT is the only combination of C, P, and T that is observed to be an exact symmetry of nature at the fundamental level (Wikipedia).

How to test matrix Hamiltonians for CPT symmetry

So I have recently learned how to time evolve systems subject to non-Hermitian Hamiltonians using left and right eigenvectors. Basically to construct my non-Hermitian Hamiltonian, I use all real ...

Classical electronics controls from both sides - could we do it for some quantum electronics?

In classical electronics we actively pull and push electrons by electric field - could we get such two-way control for some quantum electronics? For example silicon quantum dots - for state ...

Eigenvalues of CPT operator

Suppose we define an operator CPT that carries out the CPT transformation: $$\text{CPT}|\Psi\rangle = A|\Psi\rangle$$ where A is just a constant. Or put another way, the states of our theory are ...
