Homework Help: Cross Product

  1. Dec 16, 2009 #1
    A and B are two Hermitian vector operators.
    K1=AXB, K2=AXB-BXA.
    Are K1 and K2 hermitian or anti-hermitian?

    I assume it means cross product.

    ber70, show us your attempt. What is the definition of hermiticity/antihemiticity? How would you use that to check whether your operators are hermitian?
