I'm getting some confusing information from different sources. If an inner product satisfies conjugate symmetry, it is called Hermitian. But the definition of a hermitian inner product says it must be antilinear in the second slot only. Doesn't conjugate symmetry imply that it's antilinear in both slots?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
