I know that [itex](A\mp )\mp =A[/itex] . Where A is an Hermitian operator How does one go about proving this through the standard integral to find Hermitian adjoint operators?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I should mention, I don't want anyone to just flat out show me step by step how to do it. I'd just like a solid starting place.

[itex]\int (A\mp \psi*) \varphi dx = \int (\psi*)A\varphi dx[/itex]
