Abstract : In a series of recent papers, one of us has analyzed in some details a class of elementary excitations called pseudo-bosons. They arise from a special deformation of the canonical commutation relation [a, a†] = 11, which is replaced by [a, b] = 11, with b not necessarily equal to a†. Here, after a two-dimensional extension of the general framework, we apply the theory to a generalized version of the two-dimensional Hamiltonian describing Landau levels. Moreover, for this system, we discuss coherent states and we deduce a resolution of the identity. We also consider a different class of examples arising from a classical system, i.e., a damped harmonic oscillator.
