|Abstract:||Unitary evolution in PT-symmetric quantum mechanics (QM) with a time-dependent metric is found to yield an interesting class of adiabatic processes. As an explicit example, a Berry-like phase associated with a PT-symmetric two-level system is derived and is interpreted as the flux of a fictitious monopole with a tunable charge plus a singular string component with nontrivial phase contributions. To gain more insight, the Hermitian analog of our non-Hermitian problem is also analyzed, which results in an intriguing class of geometric-phase problems in conventional QM as well, where the Hamiltonian includes a perturbative term that is proportional to the rate of change in adiabatic parameters. © 2010 The American Physical Society.|
