Abstract

We prove that the decay of the eigenfunctions of harmonic oscillators, uniform electric or magnetic fields is not stable under 0-order complex perturbations, even if bounded, of these Hamiltonians, in the sense that we can produce solutions to the evolutionary Schrodinger flows associated to the Hamiltonians, with a stronger Gaussian decay at two distinct times. We then characterize, in a quantitative way, the sharpest possible Gaussian decay of solutions as a function of the oscillation frequency or the strength of the field, depending on the Hamiltonian which is considered. This is connected to the Hardy's Uncertainty Principle for free Schrodinger evolutions. (C) 2017 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
