Abstract

Closed expressions are derived for the pseudo-norm, norm and orthogonality relations for arbitrary bound states of the PT symmetric and the Hermitian Scarf II potential for the first time. The pseudo-norm is found to have indefinite sign in general. Some aspects of the spontaneous breakdown of PT symmetry are analyzed.
