Abstract

Quasi-exactly solvable Schrödinger operators have the remarkable property that a part of their spectrum can be computed by algebraic methods. Such operators lie in the enveloping algebra of a finite-dimensional Lie algebra of first order differential operators-the "hidden symmetry algebra". In this paper we develop some general techniques for constructing quasi-exactly solvable operators. Our methods are applied to provide a wide variety of new explicit two-dimensional examples (on both flat and curved spaces) of quasi-exactly solvable Hamiltonians, corresponding to both semisimple and more general classes of Lie algebras.
