We discuss how to treat quantum-mechanical systems in which the Hamiltonian and the momentum and position operators are not Hermitian on the real axis. In particular we discuss the situation in which the momentum operator cannot be written as -id/dx, and in which the norms of the energy eigenstates cannot be written as the standard Dirac |
