I'm missing something obvious so please point out what I'm thinking wrong(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

SE equation is:

ih d/dt | > = H| >

the taking adjoint turns i -> -i and (d/dt) -> -(d/dt)

so adjoint of SE should be same as SE

however it isn't. adjoint of SE is

-ih d/dt | > = H| >

do we not take adjoint of d/dt, if so, why not? the adjoint of d/dt is -d/dt, no?

thanks a bunch in advance.
