Abstract The Lee model with fixed point particles is investigated when complex energy eigenvalues appear in the subspace (V, N + theta ). It is proved that in general such a model has no physical interpretation, at least in the usual framework. Indeed a problem in the subspace (2V + theta , V + N + 2 theta , 2N + 3 theta ) is considered, and it is shown that expressions which are usually interpreted as probabilities become negative. Such difficulties do not appear in simpler problems. (auth)
