(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The operator F is defined by Fψ(x)=ψ(x+a) + ψ(x-a), where a is a nonzero constant. Determine whether or not F is a Hermitian operator.

2. Relevant equations

∫(x+a)d/dx + (x-a)d/dxψ

3. The attempt at a solution

f = (1=ax) + (1-ax)ψ

What are the steps I need to do to figure this out. Thanks.
