1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Are the following matrices hermitian, anti-hermitian or neither a) x^2 b) x p = x (hbar/i) (d/dx) 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution For a) I assume it is hermitian because it is just x^2 and you can just move it to get from <f|x^2 g> to <f x^2|g> but I am not sure how to do it for b) because there is the x term and the d/dx term I can't just differntiate it like normal for these problems. Any help would be appreciated.
