In this article we have investigated theoretical aspects of the solutions of some of the quantum mechanical problems in Rindler space. We have developed formalisms for the exact analytical solutions for the relativistic equations, along with the approximate form of solutions for the Schrödinger equation. The Hamiltonian operator in Rindler space is found to be non-Hermitian in nature, whereas the energy eigen values are observed to be real in nature. We have noticed that the sole reason behind such real behavior is the PT -symmetric form of the Hamiltonian operator. We have also observed that the energy eigen values are negative, lineraly quantized and the quantum mechanical system becomes more and more bound with the increase in the strength of gravitational field strength produced by the strongly gravitating objects, e.g., black holes, which is classical in nature.
