I think these questions may be so simple that I don't know how to properly prove them, but I am really stumped on how to show especially the first one:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Show that [tex](A_{op}^t)^t=A_{op}[/tex] Where [tex]A_{op}[/tex] is an operator and 't' is my way of saying hermitian conjugate

Secondly, I'm not too sure at all how to show this:

Show that the anti-hermitian operator, [tex]I_{op}^t=-I_{op}[/tex] has at most one real eigenvalue

Any hints would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: oops! Hidden in the annals of the internet I found the appropriate definition for [tex]A_{op}[/tex], but I'm still having trouble with the second one.
