I forgot the exact terminology for these types of operators but here goes.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

take for example the operators x, and p.

the commuter equals i(h bar), and the eigenvectors are fourier transforms of eachother.

my question is, how do you go about proving at least one of the properties listed above without referencing any functional form of x or p aka start with the most basic axioms possible.
