Conceptual and Practical Implications of Pseudo-Hermitian Quantum Mechanics
In this talk I will give a brief review of Pseudo-Hermitian Quantum Mechanics (PHQM), describe how it reveals an interesting structural similarity between Quantum Mechanics and General Relativity, discus the quantum Brachistochrone problem and the geometry of state space in PHQM, and present an interesting application of PHQM in the description of electromagnetic wave propagation in arbitrary (possibly inhomogeneous and anisotropic) stationary dielectric media.
