    • Abstract

       

      Two-dimensional $\mathcal{PT}$-symmetric quantum-mechanical systems with the complex cubic potential $V_{12} = x^{2} + y^{2} + igxy^{2}$ and the complex Hénon–Heiles potential $V_{\text{HH}} = x^{2} + y^{2} + ig(xy^{2} − x^{3}/3)$ are investigated. Using numerical and perturbative methods, energy spectra are obtained to high levels. Although both potentials respect the $\mathcal{PT}$ symmetry, the complex energy eigenvalues appear when level crossing happens between same parity eigenstates.
