For the problem I'm working on, I have T(a+bx+cx^2)=bx, which is not self adjoint. Then the matrix wrt to the basis (1,x, x^2) is zero everywhere, but 1 in the second row, second column. The only explanation I can come up with for why it's matrix equals the conj. transpose of the matrix even though it is not self adjoint is that the basis is not orthonormal.

(sorry I don't know how to format things properly)
