I know for two linear operators $$H_1, H_2$$ between finite dimensional spaces (matrices) we have the relations (assuming their adjoints/inverses exist):(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

$$(H_1 H_2)^* = H_2^* H_1^*$$ and $$(H_1 H_2)^{-1} = H_2^{-1} H_1^{-1}$$

but does this extend to operators in infinite dimensions? Thanks.
