Title

Imaginary Cubic Perturbation: Numerical and Analytic Study

Abstract

The analytic properties of the ground-state resonance energy E(g) of the cubic potential are investigated as a function of the complex coupling parameter g. We explicitly show that it is possible to analytically continue E(g) by means of a resummed strong coupling expansion, to the second sheet of the Riemann surface, and we observe a merging of resonance and antiresonance eigenvalues at a critical point along the line arg(g) = 5π/4. In addition, we investigate the convergence of the resummed weak-coupling expansion in the strong-coupling regime, by means of various modifications of order-dependent mappings (ODMs), that take special properties of the cubic potential into account. Various ODMs are adapted to different regimes of the coupling constant. We also determine a large number of terms of the strong-coupling expansion by resumming the weak-coupling expansion using the ODMs, demonstrating the interpolation between the two regimes made possible by this summation method.
