    • Abstract

       

      We investigate the quasi-exact solutions of an analogous Schrödinger wave equation for two-dimensional non-Hermitian complex Hamiltonian systems within the framework of an extended complex phase space characterized by $x = x_{1} + ip_{3}$, $y = x_{2} + ip_{4}$, $p_{x} = p_{1} + ix_{3}$, $p_{y} = p_{2} + ix_{4}$. Explicit expressions for the energy eigenvalues and eigenfunctions for ground and first excited states of a two-dimensional $\mathcal{PT}$-symmetric sextic potential and some of its variants are obtained. The eigenvalue spectra are found to be real within some parametric domains.
