Unfolding of higher order exceptional points in a PT-symmetric Bose-Hubbard model

Graefe, E.-M.; Günther, U.; Korsch, H.-J.; Niederle, A.
The physics of the PT-symmetric two-mode Bose-Hubbard model is discussed in detail. Special emphasis is laid on the unfolding of higher-order exceptional points (EPs) and on a detailed presentation of the Newton polygon technique. It is shown that the latter can be considered as a highly efficient tool for the unfolding analysis of higher-order roots in any polynomial equation.
