Hi, I have a matrix which gives the same determinant wether it is transposed or not, however, its eigenvalues have complex roots, and there are complex numbers in the matrix elements. Can this matrix be classified as non-Hermitian?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If so, is there any other name to classify it, as it is not unitary, norm or skew-hermitian?

Thanks
