1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Find the adjoints for x2d/dx and d2/dx2 2. Relevant equations I know that (x2)_dagger=x2 and that (d/dx)_dagger=-(d/dx). 3. The attempt at a solution I solved x2d/dx by doing the following: (x2)_dagger * (d/dx)_dagger= (x2) * (-d/dx) thus the answer should be -x2d/dx For the second adjoint can I do the same step as I did previously? Is it right for me to separate (d2/dx2)_dagger into (d/dx)_dagger * (d/dx)_dagger? I got d2/dx2 as the final answer.
