Towards theory of C-symmetries

S. Kuzhel
V. Sudilovskaya

Abstract. The concept of \(\mathcal{C}\)-symmetry originally appeared in \(\mathcal{PT}\)-symmetric quantum mechanics is studied within the Krein spaces framework.

Keywords: Krein space, \(J\)-self-adjoint operator, \(J\)-symmetric operator, Friedrichs extension, \(\mathcal{C}\)-symmetry.
